There will never be any form of marginalisation of any ethnic group in Ghana under a future New Patriotic Party (NPP) government, should Ghanaians give the party the mandate in the 2016 general elections, flag-bearer of the party, Nana Akufo-Addo has noted.

Receiving a delegation from the Binduri constituency on June 29, led by the newly elected parliamentary candidate, Abanga Abdullahi, Nana Addo stressed that all Ghanaians, regardless of where they hail from, will have a pride of place in Ghana.

According to him, development and improvement of living standards for all will be the main focus of his government.

“The NPP is not on any tribal agenda and has no tribal agenda. Every single group will be secure in Ghana. We are One Ghana and I am totally committed to working to ensure peace and unity for the Ghana project,” the NPP presidential candidate said.

He added: “Whether you are a Fante, Ga, Ewe, Akan, Kussasi, Mamprusi, Bimoba or whatever ethnic group you belong to, Ghana belongs to all of us. No ethnic group will be marginalised under Akufo-Addo, and the track record of the NPP in this regard speaks for itself.”

He made these comments when Mr. Abanga Abdullahi said that a vicious campaign is being waged by opponents of the NPP that Kussasi settlers in the South will be sent to the North when an NPP government under Nana Akufo-Addo takes over in 2016.

But according to Nana Addo, that was the same propaganda played against the NPP in the run-up to the 2000 elections, when political opponents stated that the NPP, under John Agyekum Kufuor, will marginalise and, in the end, “sack some ethnic groups from Ghana.”

“In the end it was all lies. President Kufuor oversaw one of the biggest transformations of Ghana in all parts of the country. No ethnic group was marginalised and I can assure all Ghanaians that, under an Akufo-Addo government, no ethnic group will be slighted in anyway whatsoever,” he recalled.
