Akufo-Addo reiterated his appeal to NPP members to desist from resorting to the use of the media in airing grievances, saying that “If you have any issues, please let us do it indoors. Let’s bring the talk of the NPP in the radio and in the newspapers to an end.”
To Nii Lante Bannerman, Nana Akufo-Addo has this to say to him: “You have a big task ahead of you, but I see you as someone who is steady and determined. I was born in Odododiodio and I will be happy if that seat comes back to the NPP.”
Afram Plains South
On Friday, August 8, William Hor, the newly elected parliamentary candidate for the Afram Plains South constituency also called on Nana Akufo-Addo.
He told the NPP flagbearer that for the first time in a very long while, “the NPP has a very genuine opportunity to win Afram Plains South.”
This, he said, was because the NPP had chosen a candidate, “an indigene”, who has lived in the constituency all his life, and who cuts across all sections of the constituency.
Unfazed by the 7,548 margin of victory chalked by the NDC candidate over the NPP in 2012, he assured Nana Akufo-Addo of an NPP victory in 2016, for both the presidential and parliamentary elections.
Mr. Hor further assured Nana Akufo-Addo that NDC rigging which takes place in the “dwarf islands”, and has been perpetuated for years, will not be countenanced in 2016 as the NPP has put in measures to ensure the party is not cheated of victory in 2016.
On his part, Nana Akufo-Addo urged William Hor to bring onboard Jeffery Konadu Addo, the only aspirant in the closely fought June 13 primary in the constituency, and his supporters, as this is the first step towards an NPP victory in 2016.
