The presidential candidate of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, will commence a regional campaign tour today, Wednesday August 3.
The three-time presidential aspirant has already been to the Volta, Western, Greater Accra, and Central regions to introduce parliamentary candidates to the people.
According to a statement from Dr Nduom’s Campaign Coordinator, Richmond Duke Keelson, “Dr Nduom will lead national, regional, and constituency executives to the Eastern, Ashanti, and Northern Regions and back to the Volta and Greater Accra regions between now and August 16th. Once again, the focus will be to showcase the party’s parliamentary candidates.”
The statement further indicated that he would build on “the [party’s] credibility for the many ideas and solutions to provide compulsory, continuous, quality education from kindergarten (KG) to senior high school, eradicate preventable diseases like malaria and cholera, create millions of jobs using our locally available raw material, and provide competent, incorruptible leadership that will prevent waste of billions of taxpayers’ money that we will use to fund our transformational initiatives”.
Dr. Nduom stated that the solution to the ailing economy does not lie with the NPP or the NDC, adding that living conditions in the country had worsened as many young people remained unemployed.
To him, the many years spent by the NDC government in power had not alleviated the plight of citizens and the time had come to vote them out.
