Don’t be complacent. vote massively for NPP – Mrs. Akufo-Addo tells Ashanti voters

First Lady of the Republic, H.E. Mrs. Rebecca Naa Okaikor Akufo-Addo has called on NPP supporters in the Ashanti Region not to be complacent in assuming that the NPP will win in the Party’s stronghold even if they don’t come out in their numbers to vote, but rather not only come out in their numbers to vote but also encourage every citizen who has benefitted from policies implemented by the Nana Addo Administration, to also go out in their numbers to vote for the NPP.

She said the Akufo-Addo government apart from the Free SHS policy which has benefitted every Ghanaian, has also materialized the 1 District 1 Factory, 1 Village 1 Dam, Youth Employment initiative, NABCO, and several other promises made in 2016. Additionally, she said, the economic mitigation measures implemented by the government in the covid-19 era including free water and electricity has also benefitted every Ghanaian regardless of their political colour.

Mrs. Akufo-Addo said this when she toured the Ashanti Region as part of her campaign to garner votes for President Akufo-Addo and the NPP in the up-coming December 7th general elections.

Accompanied by the Ashanti Regional Minister Hon. Simon Osei-Mensah, Mayor of Kumasi Hon. Osei Assibey Antwi, NPP parliamentary candidate for Ejisu and Chief Executive officer of the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme (NEIP), John Kuma and other senior government and Party officials, the First Lady paid a courtesy call on the Asantehene, Otumfuor Osei Tutu II, visited the AsanteHemaa Nana Konadu Yiadom III, and the Ejisuhemaa Nana Yaa Asantewaa II. She later attended a durbar of Queen mothers and Market queens in the Ashanti region at Ejisu.
At the Manhyia Palace, Mrs. Akufo-Addo thanked the Otumfuor and the AsanteHemaa for their continuous prayers and support for H.E. the President and the NPP government since assuming office in 2017 and said President Akufo-Addo during the period has worked hard to fulfill all his promises to the people of Ghana.

She said the Free SHS policy which many were skeptical about has materialized only because of the political commitment and competence of the Akufo-Addo administration and asked for Otumfuor and Asantehemaa’s blessings for the NPP administration to be retained to continue their good work.

AsanteHemaa Nana Konadu Yiadom III thanked the First lady for her visit to the royal palace and prayed with her for a peaceful election, the outcome of which should advance the wellbeing of the country.
Later at the durbar of Ashanti Region Queen mothers and Market Queens, Mrs. Akufo-Addo said the NPP is the only Political Party which always implements policies which go to alleviate the economic hardships of women. She said the NHIS and free maternal care under President Kufuor and the Free SHS and restoration of Nursing and Teacher Trainee allowances under the Akufo-Addo administration have brought great relief to many families.

She urged the gathering not to assume the NPP will win the elections because others will go out and vote but rather go out to every house and every corner to rally votes for the NPP on December 7th, warning that the many laudable policies which the good people of Ghana are benefitting from risk collapse in the unlikely event that another party wins the elections.

The First lady also used the occasion to introduce the NPP parliamentary candidate for Ejisu Mr. John Kuma to the gathering and asked them to vote massively for him stating that it is when the NPP wins more seats in parliament that the good work of the next Akufo-Addo administration can be expedited for the benefit of all.

NPP parliamentarians are your best bet for development – First Lady to Ada and Sege residents

First lady of the Republic, Mrs. Rebecca Naa Okaikor Akufo-Addo has called on residents of the Ada and Sege constituencies in the Greater Accra Region to vote massively for the NPP in both the presidential and parliamentary elections, to witness unprecedented development.
She said voting religiously for a particular political party without witnessing a relative development is indicative of a Party which is complacent with the people’s welfare.

Mrs. Akufo-Addo made the remarks when she toured the Ada and Sege Constituencies, as part of her tour of the Greater Accra Region to canvass for votes for President Akufo-Addo and the NPP in the up-coming Presidential and Parliamentary elections, on December 7th.
At Ada, the First Lady attended a durbar of chiefs and party faithfuls held in her honour at Torgbloku where she urged the residents to vote for a political party with a track record of implementing policies which address their needs.

She said the NPP has the enviable track record of competently implementing social intervention policies which address the core concerns of the people, explaining that good health and education are core ingredients for human development and the NPP has the record of implementing the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) under President Kufuor and the Free SHS under President Akufo-Addo “This is what should inform you in deciding on who to vote for on December 7th, she said.

Mrs. Akufo-Addo introduced the NPP parliamentary candidate for Ada Madam Sarah Pobee who is also DCE for Ada East to the Chiefs and people, and appealed for their support in votes so she represents them in the next parliament.

The First Lady later commissioned the fully furnished, equipped and staffed Torgbloku CHPS Compound and donated items including beds, isolation gowns, latex surgical gloves, blankets, wheel chairs and some detergents to the Ada East District Hospital at Faithkpope.

At Sege, Mrs. Akufo-Addo met with fishmongers and womenfolk at the Goi School Park to interact with them and ascertain how government can facilitate the growth of their businesses. She also inspected on-going works on Phase 2 of the Sege market project and urged them to vote for President Akufo-Addo and the NPP parliamentary candidate for Sege, Madam Eunice Lasi to ensure completion of all on-going projects as well as execution of new ones.

She said the government of President Akufo-Addo is on the path of changing the country and with an NPP representative in parliament, the people of Sege will benefit immensely from this transformation.

“We have completed constructing an ambulance bay, the Astech school block, phase 1 of the Sege Market and already working on phase 2 which will come with a nursery for your children”, Mrs. Akufo-Addo said to a thunderous applause by the fishmongers and traders.

The First lady said beyond voting for a woman who will be more sensitive to their social and economic woes and so will advocate to pass laws in that direction, voting for an NPP parliamentarian will also mean voting for someone who shares the development aspirations of President Akufo-Addo and is willing and able to join him work to make that vision a reality.

She emphasized that though the Akufo-Addo led NPP government will not be discriminatory in extending development projects to all constituencies in the country, it is trite knowledge that voting for a parliamentary candidate who is a member of the governing Party, especially when that Party is the NPP, always inures to the benefit of the people.

The NPP Parliamentary candidate for Sege, Madam Eunice Lasi said the Free SHS policy has brought great relief to the people of Sege and has also caused a significant increase in enrolment of girls in school as the challenge of selecting one among many in a family to go to school, which often favoured the males, has ended.

Mrs. Akufo-Addo promised to address some needs raised by the traders and townsfolk including road construction, expeditious completion of phase 2 of the Sege market and its auxiliary facilities, as well as the provision of soft loans to expand their businesses.

The First Lady was accompanied on her tour by the CEO of Coastal Development Authority, Mr. Jerry Shaibu Ahmed, Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the NPP, Mr. Divine Otoo Agorhom and other government and party officials.

“Change your parliamentarian for Development” – First Lady tells residents of Ningo Prampram

First Lady of the Republic, H.E. Mrs. Rebecca Naa Okaikor Akufo-Addo has urged residents of Ningo Prampram to vote for a parliamentarian from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to catalyse development projects in the constituency, stating that even though they have been voting for a parliamentarian from the NDC for the past twenty-eight (28) years, they cannot boast of equivalent development in their area.

Mrs. Akufo-Addo said this when she toured and interacted with residents of Ningo Prampram in the Greater Accra Region to canvass votes for President Akufo-Addo and the NPP in the up-coming December 7th general elections.

As part of het tour, the First Lady attended a rally at Dawhenya and Ahwiam all in the Ningo Prampram constituency where she met party faithfuls and introduced the NPP Parliamentary candidate for Ningo Prampram Alexander Martey to the People.

Mrs. Akufo-Addo told the gathering that though the NPP has never won the Ningo parliamentary seat since the inception of the fourth republic, significant projects executed in the constituency, happened under NPP governments.

She said under the government of President Kufuor, the constituency was provided with a police station and police quarters with water supply extended from Sege to Prampram. Under the Akufo-Addo led NPP administration, Mrs. Akufo-Addo said Ningo Prampram has benefitted from the 1 District 1 Factory (1D1F) initiative which has seen three factories in the constituency, the construction of the largest greenhouse in west Africa a new market, extended electricity and construction of storm drains.

“All these”, she said “has come to Ningo Prampram only when the NPP is in government and even though we have no NPP MP to bring your voice closer to government” and asked the people to imagine the rate of development if they had an NPP MP under an NPP government to advance their concerns.

Member of Parliament for Ablekuma North Hon. Nana Akua Owusu Afriyie who accompanied the First Lady on her tour told the residents to consider the many social intervention policies that have been implemented under NPP governments such as the NHIS under President Kufuor, and Free SHS, 1D1F and the recent reduction and cancellation of electricity and water tariffs respectively under President Akufo-Addo which they have benefitted from, and vote accordingly. The First lady also paid a courtesy call on the Chief of Dawa and his elders at his palace and thanked them for all their prayers and support for the Akufo-Addo government and pleaded with them to lend their support as the NPP seeks another term in office to do more.

The Chief of Dawa,Nene Tettehwayo Duamor XI welcomed Mrs. Akufo-Addo to the palace and told her he is very happy with the administration of President Akufo-Addo.

He said even though the people of Ningo Prampram including Dawa have never elected an NPP parliamentarian before, there is no doubt that they have benefitted immensely from policies implemented by the government.

He said the Free SHS is a life saver as it had come to address a critical challenge in the constituency and is sure to break the vicious cycle of poverty.

Nene Tettehwayo Duamor Xl assured the First Lady of his people’s unflinching support for the Akufo-Addo led NPP government and their determination to ensure that the NPP parliamentary candidate, Alexander Martey represents them in the next parliament.

Mrs. Akufo-Addo rounded up her tour with a durbar held in her honour at lower Prampram which was graced by the Acting President of Ningo Traditional council and Chief of Ningo Nene Wakah Atiapa III and other traditional leaders.

In his speech to welcome Mrs. Akufo-Addo, Nene Wakah Atiapa III said the time has come for the people of Ningo-Prampram to change their parliamentarian from NDC to NPP.

He said the continuous selection of NDC members to parliament has slowed down development in the constituency due to the lack of urgency on the part of the MP, to lobby development projects to the constituency and said the people of Ningo Prampram will vote massively for the NPP’s Alex Martey to send a clear signal to politicians that they cannot be taken for granted.

The First Lady promised to escalate their request for fishing landing sites at Ahwiam and for the constituency to be divided into two, because of its vastness, to the relevant authorities.

She also reminded them of the Covid-19 threat and advised them to continue adhering to the social distance protocols and wear their masks.

The First Lady was accompanied on her tour by NPP Parliamentary candidate for Ningo Prampram Alexander Doku, DCE for Ningo Prampram Jonathan Teye Doku, NPP Constituency Chairman for Ningo Prampram Michael Tetteh Eku and other government and Party officials.

Former NDC Chairman of the Awutu Senya West Constituency in the Central Region Hon.

Why should I not support President Akufo-Addo for another term” he asked.

The NDC Chairman also commended the NPP MP for Awutu Senya West and Deputy Minister for Communications, Hon. Nenyi George Kojo Andah for the many development projects he has facilitated in the constituency since becoming their representative in Parliament.

“Our footprints in health have been seen in all 16 regions of Ghana. Today is another opportunity for me to thank our remarkable partners and donors. They have made it possible for me, even in this COVID-19 times, to support our health sector,” she said.

She assured the hospital of the foundation’s support adding, “I am hopeful that these items will go to improve the quality of care here and make your work easier.”

Medical Director of the Tema General Hospital, Dr. Richard Anthony, said the impact of ‘The Rebecca Foundation’ in the country’s health sector can be felt by all especially, mothers and children. “Your Excellency, we can attest to your love for maternal and child health issues among several others, of particular mention are your campaign for the prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV, promotion of exclusive breast feeding, voluntary blood donation, and breast cancer awareness ,” he said.

Dr. Anthony also noted that the hospital staff benefited from the several interventions put in place by the government for frontline health workers in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We were one of the hospitals who received tremendous support from government also through the COVID-19 national trust fund. We pray for God’s enormous blessings for this kind gesture and appeal for more such benevolent act from your office,” he added.

He said through the effort of the First Lady and other stakeholders the hospital has been earmarked for an upgrade which will move it from a general hospital to regional hospital status.
“In 2016, during your visit to Tema General Hospital, a humble plea was made to you for the construction of a new hospital complex. Her Excellency a mother who has a listening ear worked assiduously behind the scene together with our MP for Tema Central, Kofi Brako, and others and we are anticipating the sod cutting for the state of the art hospital complex by President Akufo-Addo. The NPP Parliamentary Candidate for Tema Central, Yves Nii Noi Hanson, indicated that under the leadership of the NPP, the hospital has benefited from a new ante natal ward, a blood analyzer among others. “I want to assure both workers of Tema General Hospital and the people of Tema Central that we shall work and make sure that it is built in the next term of President Akufo-Addo.

Beyond that, we need your mandate to continue with the good works that we have begun and I can assure you that I, Nii Noi, together with the President when given the mandate we shall work and make sure your request for a new regional hospital is fulfilled,” he said.

At the free breast screening exercise in Tema West, organized by the Tema West MP, Carlos Ahenkorah and the Breasted One Foundation, Mrs. Akufo-Addo encouraged the women to take advantage of the free breast screening to have their breast examined.

She said it was important for the disease to be detected early as early detection helps in better treatment outcomes.

Let’s win Greater Accra for NPP – First Lady

First Lady, Mrs.Rebecca Naa Okaikor Akufo-Addo, has paid a working visit to the Okaikoi South Constituency of the Greater Accra Region to garner votes for the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

During her visit, Mrs. Akufo-Addo called on the traditional leaders at the Ga Mantse Palace.

She asked for their blessing and prayers for the NPP to win the December 7 polls.
“This is an election year and the time is getting closer so I am here to ask for your blessing, prayers and votes for the NPP to continue to stay in power,” she said.

She urged the electorates to renew the mandate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as the country prepares to go to the polls on December 7.
Mrs. Akufo-Addo said the Greater Accra Region plays a critical role in the outcome of every election and therefore asked the electorates to keep faith with the NPP by not only voting for President Akufo-Addo but also the NPP Parliamentary candidates in the region.

“Let us not think that we have won the elections, we need to come out and vote massively on December 7, because we know we can win the Greater Accra Region for the NPP,” she said.

Addressing a crowd of party supporters at the Bubuiashie Cluster of Schools in the constituency she said the NPP deserves another four years to continue with the developments that are currently ongoing in the region.

“I want you to know that the Greater Accra Region has benefited from infrastructure developments under the NPP and we want to make sure the development is sustained,” she added. The First Lady also visited the Kaneshie Polyclinic where her Foundation – The Rebecca Foundation – presented assorted medical equipment and consumables to the health facility. She also toured the facility and interacted with some patients who were receiving medical care. Mrs. Akufo-Addo said good health is critical for every nation’s development adding that in the past few years, the NPP government has invested heavily in the country’s health sector. “Health facilities have been up-graded and new ones built all over the country with many more under construction. Ambulances have been provided for all constituencies to enhance emergency healthcare delivery. We have seen increased recruitment of health personnel and the restoration of nurse’s allowance. We have also seen the support and incentives given to health workers during the Covid-19 pandemic,” she touted.

Taking a cue from the government’s investment in the health sector, she said the Rebecca Foundation has focused its activities on the health sector by promoting the health of women and children since 2017.
“We have build world class facilities, renovated and refurbished facilities, carried out medical outreaches and provided ambulances to some health facilities and supplied hospital equipment and consumables to facilities all over Ghana,” she added. She expressed satisfaction at the partnership the Foundation has had with the Ministry of Health and the Ghana Health Service to improve the health of Ghanaians especially women and children. “It is deeply satisfying for me to look back on the many ways we have worked together,” she said.
The First Lady also commended the staff of the health facility for the fantastic work they are dong amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Ayekoo to you all, because of your contribution to the fight against the spread of Covid-19, Ghana is in a relatively better position than even more endowed countries,” she stated.

Aspiring NPP MP for Okaikoi South, Dakoa Newman, who accompanied the First Lady on her tour, said with the NPP in power the Polyclinic which has began to see a facelift of its maternity unit will see greater transformation in the coming years.

“The government has started with the construction of a two storey building for the health facility so let’s give President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo four more years so he can complete the maternity block for our mothers,” she said.
