It seems the November poll is pulling on more weight than a truck load of cement. The New Patriotic Party (NPP)’s Nana Addo has appealed to the Krobos to vote for the NPP come November elections.
Nana Addo in his statement implied that what Ghanaians needed was NPP’s Victory in the polls both in the parliamentary and presidential elections as that would help bring back stability in the nation. He urged the Krobo people not to pay attention to political parties who seek to bring divisions among them especially during election periods.
He said this on Saturday, February 6, at the Funeral of late Mr. Emmanuel Adjase, father of Robert Tetteyfio Adjase, convener of the pressure group “Disappointed NDC Youth Crossing Over to NPP”, which took place in Krobo Odumase.
The group which is still bent on their views about the current government buttressed its optimism on the November polls and on the greater good of Ghanaians, which is to come. Nana Addo stressed that Ghana is in a situation where it needs drastic measures to bring about change in the country, and that helping the NPP win in the coming elections is the first significant step towards bringing about a better Ghana.
So many personalities of the NPP were present at the Funeral rites of Mr. Emmanuel Adjase. People in the likes of Freddie Blay, Acting NPP National Chairman; Dr Samuel Yaw Annor, former NPP Eastern Regional Chairman; John Boadu, Acting NPP General Secretary; Abraham Tetteh Sackey, NPP Lower Manya Krobo constituency chairman; Joseph Tetteh, NPP parliamentary candidate for Upper Manya Krobo constituency; Francis Djetse Appertey, NPP parliamentary candidate for Yilo Krobo, to mention a few.
Nana Addo hopes that the Krobos and Ghana as a whole would heed to his foresighted points about the November elections. The Krobos are the most numerous of the Adangme-speaking people. They are mostly in the mountains just inland from the coast and are the fourth largest ethnic group in the country.
