Freddie Blay with some NPP leaders in the VR
The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) National Chairman, Freddie W. Blay, has charged Volta Regional executives, constituency executives, MMDCEs and government appointees to work assiduously towards the realization of the party’s retention in power.
He said the party was pursuing what he called “Agenda 35 per cent of the popular votes for the presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, and five parliamentary seats in the Volta region.”
Mr. Blay made the call during his visit to the region to ascertain the preparedness of the party and the regional campaign team towards the December 7 general election.
He underscored the importance President Akufo-Addo attached to the growth and development of the region, saying “this explains the numerous visits by the President after his investiture on January 7, 2017.”
Mr. Blay reminded the party’s regional leadership of the President’s famous statement that “he and the NPP have decided to marry the good people of the Volta Region, the reason why he has decided to spend more time in the region,” and ensure things work for the benefit of the people.
Mr. Blay urged the leadership of the party in the region to focus on the great achievements of the government, and constantly remind the voters of some of the ongoing infrastructure projects in Ho, Hohoe, Ketu South, Kpando, Ho Central and others, including major township roads across the region.
Other major projects currently ongoing in the region include railway and water projects.
The National Chairman, again mentioned the free SHS, free maternal care, improvement in the operations of the NHIS, 1D1F, Planting for Food and Jobs, One Village One Dam, stable electricity, restoration of Nursing and Teacher Training Allowances, major street lighting projects in the region, particularly that of the Hohoe District, as some of the good programmes of the government.
The Volta Regional Chairman, Makafui Woanya, on behalf of his team, extended the appreciation of the people of the region to the party and the government, “for the amazing work done across the region.”
He further pledged the team’s readiness to work day and night to deliver on the Agenda 35 per cent of the popular votes for President Akufo-Addo and five parliamentary seats for the party in the region.
The National Chairman was accompanied by officials including Dominic Eduah, Executive Director of GNPC Foundation; Dr. Charles Dwamena, Deputy Ambassador to China; and Richard Asante Yeboah, Deputy National Communications Director and government spokesperson on infrastructure.
