According to him, the Zongo Development Fund which he promised is on the radar and will be used to help develop the Zongo communities and also address the challenges facing them.
Nana Addo in an interaction with the Sarkin zongo, Chief Issah Wanzam and residents of Gaskia zongo as part of his campaign tour in Accra urged them to endeavour to vote for change to help improve the lives of the masses.
He said, “This year you should all vote for me; I’m coming to work and not to amass wealth. You need a President who will bring jobs into the country.”
He however diffused claims by the NDC that Akufo-Addo-led NPP government will re-introduce the Aliens’ Compliance Order of 1969.
According to him, “it is a complete, vicious fabrication”, saying that when President Kufuor was in office from 2001 to 2009, he served as Attorney General and Minister for Justice for two years, and could say with confidence that such a policy was never initiated within the 8-year period.
“What they are saying is just to put fear in you so you do not vote for the NPP. I was the lawyer who handled the land case for Lawan Bako and other leaders of Sabon Zongo. I won the case for them in court and got them their land. How then can I be the one to come and sack you and others who are living in Sabon Zongo?” he said, amid cheers from the gathering.
