The First Lady, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo, has toured the La Dadekotopon Constituency of the Greater Accra Region to garner more votes for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party’s (NPPs) parliamentary candidate for the constituency, Mr. Joseph Gerald Tetteh Nyanyofio.
The First Lady first met with members of the La Traditional Council to extend the best wishes of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and assure them of the President’s commitment to work hard again for all Ghanaians when voted into office for four more years.
Her next stop was the La General Market where she interacted with traders on the impact of government policies on their lives.
Mrs. Akufo-Addo said the NPP government was determined to empower every Ghanaian and create an equal-playing field for everyone to harness their potential and make a decent living.
“This is what informed the implementation of policies such as Free SHS, One district, One factory (1D1F), Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJ) and the establishment of institutions such as the Coastal Development Authority.
She added that the government was also working with the relevant institutions to strengthen technical and vocational education to make it possible for those who for various reasons dropped out of school in the past to go back to school to acquire trade skills.
The First Lady further visited the 37 Military Hospital lorry station where she was met by jubilant traders and drivers.
At a grand durbar held in her honour at Manjaanoo, also in the La Dadekotopon Municipality, Mrs. Akufo-Addo advised the constituents to vote for a candidate and party which had delivered on its promises despite heavy scepticism and cynicism.
“Under President Kufuor, we promised to bring NHIS, they said we couldn’t but we did; when under President Akufo-Addo we promised to bring Free SHS too, they said we couldn’t, but again the NPP has delivered,” she said.
She assured them of President Akufo-Addo and the NPP’s ability to work to enhance their social and economic status and said the surest way for Ghanaians to witness the full transformation of Ghana as envisioned by President Akufo-Addo was to vote massively for the NPP on December 7 to give him four more years to do more.
