Ashanti New Vision Party supports Nduom


Leading members of the Ashanti Regional branch of the New Vision Party (NVP) have thrown their support for Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, the presidential candidate of the Progressive People?s Party (PPP) in Friday?s (December 7th, 2012) presidential election.

They include Mr. Joseph Amoateng, the Ashanti Regional Propaganda Secretary of the NVP; Mr. Opoku Afriyie, the Ashanti Regional Deputy Secretary; Regional Organizer, Stephen Sena; Barbara Kyerewa, the Regional Women Organizer and M. Ofori Atta, the Regional Vice Chairman.

Early this year, the party?s General Secretary, Ishmael Kwesi Longdon became the first key member of the NVP to join Dr Nduom and the Progressive People?s Party. The NVP is one of the parties which presidential candidate, Prophet Nkansah was denied filing for the national presidential nomination by the Electoral Commission.

At a press conference in Kumasi today, Saturday December 1st, 2012, the group led by Mr. Ofori Atta, said after careful consideration of the campaign messages of all eight presidential candidates in the December 7General Elections, they realized that it was only Dr Nduom who has practical solutions?? to many of the problems facing Ghanaians.

?You know we could not file a candidate for the 2012 elections. That means we had to look through the manifestoes and campaign messages of the presidential candidates and we realize that it is only Dr. Nduom who is providing practical solutions that marks him out distinctively as the only one with the knack to lead Ghana in such trial moments,? Joseph Amoateng noted.

In the opinion of Mr. Amoateng, after providing jobs for close to 15,000 Ghanaians, Dr Nduom has demonstrated even in private life that, he knows how to solve the single most difficult problem of many politicians, some of who made similar promises on political platforms, but failed woefully when it mattered most because they did not have what it takes to create the jobs.

According to the group the decision to support the PPP presidential candidate was further influenced by Dr Nduom?s burning desire to support the growth of indigenous Ghanaian industries at the expense of the current practice where foreigners, especially Asians, have taken over the retail outlets of Ghanaian markets.

Early this week, the presidential aspirant of the Independent People?s Party (IPP) Mr. Kofi Akpaloo announced that he had joined the campaign trail of Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom because he also believed the PPP presidential candidate was the best among all those aspiring for the highest office of the land.

Mr. Akpaloo?s General Secretary was the first leading member of the IPP to join the PPP with some 200 members of the Koforidua Zongo branch of the NDC also joining the PPP recently.
