The flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo, has accused the ruling NDC of using our national resources to bribe people with cars and other ‘goodies’ to get them to vote for them in the upcoming general election.
Campaign season is heating up and one aspect you can never do without in Ghana is the sharing of ‘gifts’ to people, to get them to vote a certain way in the election.
Speaking in the Eastern Region, the three time Presidential candidate said the populace should be wary of the trick, where they are handed four years of hardship and then deceived with such huge gifts during campaign season.
“In 2012, they shared so many items. It was our taxpayer’s money that was used for this. That is why we are suffering today. It has started again,” he told teeming supporters.
“This year, they are distributing Prados. They will starve you for 4 years and only show up to bring you goodies a few months to elections so you vote for them. After taking the goodies, and voting for them, the hunger returns and will be worse than what you experienced in the past,” he added.
“Ghanaians have suffered too much. God did not put us on this rich land for us to be poor. It is bad leadership that makes us poor. We are coming to change the circumstances of our country. We will institute measures to bring relief to the Ghanaian.”
