NPP Will Win 2012 Election - Dan Botwe

Mr Dan Botwe, the Member of Parliament for Okere, said on Friday that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) would win the December election. “I want to assure you that the NPP, led by our able leader, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo- Addo, will win this year’s election and form the next government,” he said. Mr Botwe appealed to supporters of the party to continue propagating the free Senior High School (SHS) policy to the electorate and also defuse the propaganda of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) against the policy. The former General Secretary of the NPP said this when he addressed supporters of the party at Apirede after a morning keep fit exercise. Mr Botwe said the NDC had failed to live up to their campaign promises to the people and that retaining them in government would be very dangerous for the country and its future generations. He said he was surprised that the NDC had kicked against the free SHS when its leader, President John Mahama, was a beneficiary of the same policy and challenged the NDC to provide any alternative policy to the free SHS education the NPP has promised. Mr Botwe said the NDC propaganda against the free SHS policy was as a result of ignorance and lack of vision to improve the country’s education sector. He urged the electorate not to listen to the NDC and vote massively for Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP to implement the policy to enable every Ghanaian child to have access to secondary education. “It amazes me that the NDC as a Social Democrat Party seeks to shoot down free education,” he added. The Okere MP said Nana Akufo-Addo was unperturbed by the ruling party’s criticisms and remained committed to implementing the free SHS policy. Mr Botwe said if the NDC had no alternative policy then they should leave the NPP alone and allow Ghanaians to bring back the NPP to come and implement the programme. He said the NPP would leave no stone unturned to take power from the NDC in December.
