The Vice Presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Professor Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang says the next NDC administration will ensure there is equal distribution of development across the country.
According to her, should Ghanaians give her Party the nod in the upcoming elections, they will make sure that no Ghanaian is left out in developmental projects that will be executed under an NDC government.
“Work together in unity and shun division because everyone is a Ghanaian. Let’s ensure peace as we get closer to the general elections. We’ve launched our manifesto. We call it the people’s manifesto because we came to you to ask for your needs. We want to develop the nation from the bottom up. We can’t sit somewhere and decide for you. All the promises in the manifesto are doable because we’ve done it before. Everyone in the country would get their share of development when given the nod,” she told the people of the Central Region at a gathering in Cape Coast.
She also advised residents of the region to work together in peace and unity.
The NDC running mate told the people her nomination as John Mahama’s running mate was an indication of the importance John Mahama and NDC put on women.
“Avoid politics of insult. Democracy does not mean insults, it has to do with the sharing of ideas. [Former] President Mahama attaches importance to women empowerment and that’s why he appointed me as his running mate,” she said.
Commenting on the ongoing exhibition of the voter register exercise, she expressed surprise about reports of missing names in the register.
She said such developments should not occur, especially as the registration exercise was biometric.
“The elections must be fair. Everyone should check their names. Now people can’t find their names. How can a biometric exercise result in missing of names? Be vigilant in order not to be disenfranchised.”
