The New Patriotic Party (NPP) says it is going to the December 7 polls with a clean heart and no intention of rigging or violence.
The party has therefore given a stern warning to the Electoral Commission not to skew the outcome of the polls to favour the ruling National Democratic Congress.
“This year NPP will not go to the polls as done previously. …we are not treating this year’s poll as Africans… no rigging but diplomacy”. Sammy Awuku, NPP National Youth Organizer Wednesday 17 August told NPP youth at Georgia Hotel in Kumasi.
Addressing hundreds of party youth groups drawn from the forty-seven constituencies in Ashanti Region, Mr. Awuku indicated that the party will be on alert to protect ballots cast on the election day.
“Our agents who will excuse himself or herself for a minute or more from the polling station on the election day will be replaced immediately to ensure the credibility of the results” .
He charged the members to quit campaigning using social media and step out to “door-to-door, house-to-house and community-to-community” to campaign for their presidential candidate.
“Cut the jokes on WhatsApp and Facebook . They have done their part. Be more serious to campaign for Nana Akuffo Addo and NPP … Go and tell majority of Ghanaians out there about the one factory for each district policy” .
Policy Advisor to Nana Akufo Addo and the 2012 National Campaign Manager for the party, Hon. Boakye Agyarko advised members not to dwell much on the current power situation in the country as a campaign message.
For him, only Greater Accra and Ashanti Regions are greatly affected since they do not draw supply from Volta River Authority.
