The New Patriotic Party’s parliamentary candidate for Bantama, Francis Asenso-Boakye on Saturday, October 31, led thousands of residents on a campaign walk.
Dubbed the “Bantama Big Walk”, participants converged at the Kumasi Girls Senior High School, Abrepo at 5 am and walked through the principal streets of Bantama to the Kumasi Cultural Centre.
Addressing the gathering at the Kumasi Cultural Centre, Mr Asenso-Boakye appealed to the electorates to vote massively for him and President Akufo-Addo to enable the NPP to continue with the “good works”.
Speaking to the crowd, Mr. Asenso-Boakye said he was proud to be a native of Bantama and to also be given the opportunity to represent the NPP in the December 7 polls.
The Deputy Chief of staff at the Presidency, stated that the exceptional performance of the Akufo-Addo government is due to the fact that all of its policies and programmes are well thought-through, unlike policies by the opposition NDC.
“If you go to almost every community in Ghana today, you can pinpoint something significant done by this government. This is because we carefully plan our programmes before they are implemented.”
While calling for unity among the rank and file of the party, Asenso-Boakye emphasized that the involvement of former Bantama MPs, namely, Cecilia Dapaah, Henry Kokofi and the incumbent MP Daniel Okyem Aboagye, at the event, goes a long way to promote peace in the constituency.
He tasked the electorates to ensure they also do their part to promote a peaceful election.
The event was attended by the Trade and Industry Minister, Mr. Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen; Member of Parliament for Suame, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, Minister for Education and Member of Parliament for Manhyia South, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, and many others.
