Vice President Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur at the weekend called on the National Democratic Congress (NDC) supporters to remain calm in the face of provocation, and convince Ghanaians to retain the party in power, on December 7.
He explained that voting for President John Dramani Mahama, who is the NDC presidential candidate for Election 2012 and the party’s parliamentary candidates, would be a better response to agents of provocation.
The Vice President was addressing a rally organised by Youth For Mahama in Sunyani, which begins a three-day campaign tour of the Brong Ahafo Region, in the final moments for the December 7 polls.
The tour is scheduled to take Vice President Amissah-Arthur, the running mate of President Mahama, to about 20 towns and communities in the Brong Ahafo Region, a notable cocoa growing and generally agricultural region of Ghana.
The Vice President reiterated the commitment of the party to development, and asked the electorate to keep in mind the track record of the NDC Government and renew its mandate for another four-year term.
The Vice President commended the group for working towards victory for the NDC in the forthcoming polls.
He stressed that more people would be attracted to the NDC if party members propagate NDC unprecedented record.
He asked the electorate to vote massively for President Mahama to actualize “one touch” victory for the party.
The Vice President asked the youth to be tolerant, law abiding and avoid reacting to any provocation.
Vice President Amissah-Arthur had earlier paid a courtesy call on Nana Asor Krawi, Omanhene of Sunyani.
Nana Krawi commended the NDC for supporting the region during hard times.
He said the late President John Evans Atta Mills lived to his 2008 promise to establish a university in the region, and said he believed that the NDC would fulfill others promises to the people.
