Political neophyte, John Dumelo is resolute in his believe that president Mahama and his party of choice, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have victory within reach even predicting the opposition NPP will get thrashed at the polls come December 7.
The actor who has set eyes on greater things was at the parliamentary campaign launch of Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa at Aveyime in the North Tongu constituency of the Volta Region on Sunday where he charged the electorate to know and see what President Mahama who is seeking a second term has done to make life enjoyable for them.
“This year will be the worst performing year for the NPP when it comes to the election. They will get the lowest vote ever because Ghana is deciding and Ghana has decided, [to retain the NDC]. So what kind of change are they talking about when we see all the projects around, and they say change is coming? That means the change is backward and we want forward change,” the ‘King is Mine’ star noted.
Deputy Minister of Education, Okudzeto Ablakwa who is also seeking to retain his seat had a few choice words for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and its presidential aspirant Nana Addo.
He had scant regard for the one-district-one-factory, one-village-per-dam and one million dollars for each constituency pledges of the NPP maintaining President Mahama’s feats dwarf the prospective dam and others.
“In North Tongu, we are not impressed with the NPP’s promise of one million dollar per constituency because in the road sector alone, president Mahama has invested more than 70 million dollar [in this area].The community day SHS which we are befitting from, one is valued at GH₵ 7 million that is far more than a million dollars. If it is about the one-village-one-dam, we already have modern irrigation facilities with underground canals, so can’t leave more or less,” Mr. Ablakwa thundered to the charge crowd.
Government functionaries and party people were on hand to make the ‘Ablakwa 2016’ campaign launch a jolly one.
