Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo Addo has said that people he will work with if elected president will help enrich the lives of Ghanaians and not steal from the state.
He is therefore warning NPP members who want to create wealth from themselves when the party comes into power to stay away from public service.
Addressing a fund raising dinner organized by the UK branch of the Young Executive forum of the NPP, Nana said the NPP is the only party that has the programme of action to address the concerns of Ghanaians.
“Public office is no longer going to be the platform for the brazen theft of public funds. Public service is going to be just that, public service. I have said it before, and I will repeat it. Those who are coming into office, if we win, must understand that they are coming to give public service.”
“Those who are coming there to make money must stay in the private sector, there will be a lot of opportunities for them there” he added.
Nana Addo noted that his government will not condone corruption in any form adding that “we are going to build a Ghana that works, a Ghana that there are jobs for our people, a Ghana which is poised for the 21st century.”
NPP ready for election 2016 Nana Addo also told the gathering that the NPP is ready to win power in the November polls saying this is evident in the vigilance displayed by party officials in the just ended limited voter registration exercise.
“The NPP is ready for the big task ahead and we’re not going to permit twenty seven zero to happen. We are going to do whatever is legitimately possible to effect the change that Ghanaians need,” he said. “Let us all work together and put our shoulders to the wheel.
Let us be the generation that sets Ghana on the road to progress and prosperity. That prosperity is within our grasp,” he added.
