The former Education Minister who is on a tour of the reagion was warmly welcomed to the Abirem Constituency by residents where she spoke about the vision of the John Mahama-led NDC for Ghanaians when voted to power.
After paying a courtesy call on Nana Kofi Owusu Amoh III, the Chief of Abirem, the NDC running mate stormed the streets to begin an interaction session with individuals.
Prof. Opoku-Agyemang also visited various households and shops situated within the Abirem Constituency to share the policies the a John Mahama and Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang NDC Administration will implement when elected.
“Comrades, the elections are close and every single Ghanaian in all parts of our dear country must be reached with our transformative agenda for jobs, inclusiveness, prosperity and more,” she said in a statement urging party supporters to join NDC’s rescue mission campaign.
Prof. Opoku-Agyemang continued, “Let’s all get involved and join the lead of our Flag-bearer, John Dramani Mahama, to retail the People’s Manifesto.”
The NDC running mate’s interaction comes at a time their flagbearer John Mahama launched their national ‘retail’ campaign in Dwenase in the Sefwi Wiawso constituency in the Western North region.
Addressing the gathering, former president Mahama urged the rank and file of the party to contribute to the fortunes to the umbrella family in the December polls.
“Today marks the beginning of victory for the people of Ghana, who are all desirous of a change in the political leadership because of the worsening living conditions they find themselves in, the slow pace of development, the nepotism and corruption that is engulfing almost every action of government, the state of insecurity and the trampling of the rights of many of our people,” the NDC leader said as he announced that General Secretary of the NDC would submit and file his nomination with the Electoral Commission (EC).
He said “the battle to transform our dear country starts now. The change starts
now! It is our sacred duty to win this battle, to deliver true change – not for ourselves, but for all Ghanaians, who deserve to live a better and dignified life.”
He said the 2020 campaign will be done with adherence to the coronavirus protocols, explaining that the message of the NDC manifesto will be communicated to Ghanaians via a house-to-house form of campaign.
“We have the moral duty to help stop this fake reality. We have the moral duty to restore truth, because it is only the truth that can generate real prosperity for every Ghanaian,” Mahama said to the party supporters.
He said the country and the good people of Ghana “can simply not afford to waste four more years!” and described the call by the Akufo-Addo government for four more years as “Four more years of lies and fake reality which will widen the gap between Ghana and the developed nations almost beyond repair.
“After four more years with an NPP government” Mr Mahama said Ghana will “risk being seen as a poor country once again, overburdened with debt and unable to create prosperity.”
