The presidential candidate of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom has asked Ghanaians to vote for a candidate who has the potential and capability of creating jobs in the country.
He said that the electorate were no longer interested in hearing false promises from politicians who are not business oriented and end up creating phantom jobs.
“I have been tried and tested as the only presidential candidate who has created jobs for the people of this country and still have the capability of doing more when I am put in the high office as the president,” he said.
Dr. Nduom who interacted with the executives of the Ghana National Association of Poultry Farmers (GNAPF) at Kotobabi on Tuesday, assured that he would give adequate protection to Ghanaian businesses and as well redeem the nation from economic doldrums.
“Ghanaians are tired of poverty, diseases and unemployment and need a man of courage, commitment, integrity and transparency to restore their hope and dignity,” he stressed.
Dr. Nduom said that the PPP was not made up of novices or inexperienced persons who could not effectively and efficiently manage the affairs of the nation should it be given the mandate to govern, and appealed to Ghanaians to try the party by voting massively for it in the December polls.
He stated that he would use his metropolitan experiences to revive all collapsed businesses in the country and also ensure the provision of ready market so as to make life worth living for the ordinary citizen.
“The PPP will provide incorruptible leadership to develop our dear motherland,” he added, and urged the electorate to judge all the presidential candidates by what they do but not what they say.
Mr. Kwadwo Asante, Chairman of the Ghana National Association of Poultry Farmers, expressed worry about the importation of 150,000 metric tonnes of frozen chicken into Ghana annually, and said the situation was detrimental to the growth of the poultry industry, as broiler production was seriously affected.
He said that the outright ban of frozen chicken importation by the government would do Ghanaians a lot of good since the poultry industry alone could offer employment to over 60,000 people in the country.
