The presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo will make Ghana a global icon when he becomes president of Ghana come January 7, 2017, according to his spokesperson, Mustapha Hamid.

He said Nana Addo is “just a man who has a passion for the development of our country, who wants to leave a mark, a certain legacy… of having brought about or having triggered the process that allowed Ghana to become what it is, a global icon in the 21st century.”

Speaking on Accra-based Citi FM, he said going through some terrible roads in the Western region during the Nana Addo’s campaign, he [Nana Addo] turned to him and said “Mustapha, you know what? This part of our country is an epitome or if you want a clear demonstration of our post colonial history.”

This, according to Akufo-Addo, said Mr. Hamid “tells the Ghanaian story that this is the country with all the rich resources that you can think about, gold, diamond, timber, bauxite and then oil and yet it is one of the poorest nations in the world.”

“He [Nana Addo] says that is not the history that we should accept to live,” he added.

Mr. Hamid continued stating that when one goes to the Northern part of the Western region that “history immediately hits you, because you go to major towns like Prestea, Bogorsu and Tarkwah and you see town…and you will think that these are basically manholes.”

He said Nana Addo is going to fix all of those setbacks in the region when he becomes president.

But Vice president Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur described the opposition NPP’s campaign message heading to the forthcoming elections as “a threat to the peaceful coexistence” of the country.

Speaking during the launch of the NDC 2016 campaign at the Cape Coast Stadium in the Central region Sunday, Mr. Amissah Arthur chastised the NPP message warning that it is extremely divisive and must be disregarded.

He said President John Mahama is the best for Ghana and that it will be foolhardy for the electorate to subscribe to the NPP’s “change is coming message” which is a “threat to the stability and peace of this country.”

But, Mr. Hamid contended that he did not understand the logic in the vice president’s words, pointing out that “in my conscious lifetime, I have seen the creation of the Upper West region.”

“Hitherto,” he added “that part of the country was called the Upper Region and then the Upper West was carved from what is now called the Upper East, principally on the same strength of the arguments that we are making...”

He said as part of democratic development it is always important to redraw boundaries based on issues of geography of distance, deprivation among others.
