The political atmosphere in the country is as charged as ever. Even non political people such as myself are taking a stand and in fact this is good for the political maturity of the nation. I am not a registered member of any political party and I do not see myself bearing a party card in the near future. But times dictates that my voice be heard. Times require that I no longer keep quiet and allow those who know nothing about my needs to make and impose a decision on me. Times demand that I make my own selfish needs plain. A desire to see that I live in a free and prosperous nation. A desire to see my children get the best of education here in this dear mother land called Ghana. A desire to see that my extended family who live in the villages of Suhum in those family cocoa farm lands get free and effective health care. A desire to see that maternal mortality is reduced and child survival rates are increased. A desire to see that money will not be a stumbling block for that financially challenged but brilliant young lady to attain higher education. A desire to see that I do not ever ever have to queue up to buy fuel to run my good old faithful jalopy. These are times to speak up and I encourage all freedom loving Ghanaians to speak up. I say VOTE FOR NANA AKUFFO ADDO, VOTE for the NPP. A vote for Nana Akuffo Addo means a vote for free secondary education; A vote for Nana Akuffo Addo means a vibrant economy; A vote for Nana Akuffo Addo means A better health system; A vote for Nana Akuffo Addo means freedom of Speech (Very very important); A vote for Nana Akuffo Addo means WE ARE MOVING FORWARD.

Please GHANAIANS help us all MOVE FORWARD. Please remember to exercise your franchise on December 28, 2008. Vote Nana Akuffo Addo; Vote for real progress. WE HAVE TO MOVE FORWARD

We hope and pray that all these “HOPES” we want to see will be materialised for all Ghanaians and not a hand full. I hope that the vibrant economy we hope to see will not be for only those with nice names like, the Kuffours, the Boatengs, Owusu’s etc. we hope that the slogan “ We are moving forward” will not die a naturally death like the way “Zero tolerance for corruption” did.

Ghana has come to a stage in her history where she need a government that can be fair in its dealings, a government that has the needs of the people at heart and not a selfish and inward looking government. That is where the CHANGE becomes an option. VOTE Professor Evans Atta Mills and the NDC to see that CHANGE.

I agree with 'Anonymous' that the vibrant economy, good healthcare and development we want to see in Ghana should be materialised for all Ghanaians and I think all governments need to do better in ensuring that benefits reach as many people as possible.

In my personal opinion the track record of the NDC does not indicate 'fairness in its dealings' or a 'government that has the needs of the people at heart'

I am curious as to what 'Anonymous' means by nice names like 'Kuffours', 'Boatengs' and 'Owusu's'. Which names are not nice?

Hello Anonymous,

I though Ghana had grown beyond tribal politics? I did not know that time had stood still for the likes of anonymous. And it is good to know that people with nice sounding names like mine Ofosu, Boakye-Yiadom get doors opened? You should have educated me earlier. Anyway, when we talk about corruption, nepotism, violence against women, stifling of freedom and the like, one does not need a history teacher to be told which regime institutionalized it. But I still stand by my word NANA AKUFFO ADDO is the best choice at this point. VOTE NANA Akuffo Addo for a better Ghana, We are moving Forward.
