Vice President of the country, Kwesi Amissah Arthur, has urged the people to vote against disruptive change in the upcoming general elections. According to him, voting another candidate other than President John Mahama will bring about disorderliness in the country.
The Vice President said this while speaking to supporters at Kumbungu, as part of his four-day tour of the Northern Region. Addressing the excited supporters, Veep said that there is no need changing a performing president like Mahama.
In his speech, Veep tells Kumbungu people that Mahama has done well for the country and that a change would be disruptive, as it would take the country backwards. Touting the achievements of the present administration, he said that the President has invested heavily in infrastructure, particularly roads, schools, hospitals, provision of electricity, and many others.
The Vice President pointed out that it is under the Mahama-led administration that some Kumbungu roads were tared; a development that has not been recorded in the area for the past 50 years. Amissah Arthur explained that if such have already been put on ground by the President, it then becomes essential that he is brought back to continue his good works.
The VP also told the people to vote massively for the NDC parliamentary candidate for the constituency. He described the NDC’s MP hopeful Ras Mubarak, as a development-oriented person, who will represent the people well at the parliament.
He told the people not to make the ‘mistake’ of the 2013 by-election, where they voted for a Convention People’s Party candidate to represent them in parliament. Kwesi Amissah Arthur assured the people of the government’s commitment to maintaining peace as well as bringing about more development that will enhance their livelihood in the country.
Also speaking at the rally, the chief of Kumbungu, Naa Iddrisu Abu hailed the incumbent government for the projects it has undertaken in the area. He also urged the people to vote for the NDC in the coming elections.
