On Saturday, October 18, 2014, some 125,000 delegates from all 275 constituencies in the 10 regions of the country went to designated polling centres to elect a presidential candidate to lead our great party, the New Patriotic Party, into the 2016 presidential election.

This election resulted in 117,413 delegates, representing 94.35%, voting for me as the presidential candidate of our party. The message of this emphatic victory is clear – I have to deliver power for the party and the nation in 2016.

The best way I can say thank you to the NPP for this tremendous show of support is to begin the process of mobilising resources and logistics, ahead of election 2016, for the prosecution of an effective campaign. In view of this, friends of mine and I have begun the first phase of equipping the party which will see every region receive ten (10) motorbikes. The motorbikes will be delivered to the Regional Chairmen this week.

As I said on the night of the victory, at the Efua Sutherland Children’s Park, “we have now to gird up our loins, put ourselves together and get ready to face the big battle of 2016. We must rid our country, through the peace of the ballot box, of this incompetent NDC government of John Dramani Mahama, and relieve the Ghanaian people of the unjustifiable hardships and difficulties they are encountering.”

The process of restoring hope to millions of Ghanaians and building a future of progress and prosperity has begun.

Thank you and God bless.

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo
