The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) wants businesses in the country to flourish, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said.
“We want businesses to flourish. With all these high taxes being imposed on the private sector, it is not surprising that businesses are collapsing. We are coming to reduce all these high taxes and also abolish import duties so businesses can flourish. When businesses flourish, Ghana can then move forward. The time to change Ghana is now,” the NPP flagbearer stated at Teshie Tsui Bleoo, as part of his campaign tour of the Ledzokuku constituency on Wednesday June 1.
Nana Akufo-Addo urged the people of Teshie to vote for the NPP’s candidate, Dr Bernard Okoe Boye, stating that “not only is he handsome, but very intelligent”.
“He is coming to work for you. The lady you voted for in 2012 has proven that she has nothing good for Teshie. We need the NPP in power to bring jobs and wealth to the people of Teshie,” he assured.
According to him, voting in this year’s election should be devoid of politics of ethnicity, but, rather, on competence and the track-record of the various political parties and their respective candidates, and their ability to deliver decent standards of living for the citizenry.
Prior to Nana Akufo-Addo’s tour, he paid a courtesy call on the Wulomo of Teshie, Nuumo Adjei Kwanko II, and also introduced himself to the traditional council of Teshie ahead of this year’s elections.
