The Paramount Chief of the Tumu Traditional area, Kuoro Richard Babini Kanton VI, said he approves of the ‘1-District-1-Factory’ and the ‘1-Village-1-Dam’ policies of Nana Akufo-Addo.

According to him, these policies are the surest ways by which the teeming masses of unemployed youth in his town can be gainfully employed, as the twin-track of industrialisation and the increase in agricultural productivity will create jobs and bring prosperity to his people.

Expressing his hope that “whatever you have been fighting for over the past years, this time round you will have it” the Paramount Chief of Tumu indicated to Nana Addo that he has been keenly monitoring the various campaign messages of the various parties, and had come to the conclusion that the promises being made by Nana Akufo-Addo can be implemented.

“With the promises we have heard you deliver on the campaign trail, my people and I believe those messages. We believe that you can perform and carry out those messages, particularly the 1-District-1-Factory. I endorse it wholeheartedly,” the Tumu Kuoro said.

He explained that, “if you consider the Upper West, we have a lot (of resources). If you go to the agricultural sector, we have maize, groundnuts and all manner of products. I believe that our district can even have more than 10 factories. We have the raw materials for more than 10 factories in our district.”

On the part of the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo, he has indicated that an NPP government, under his leadership will provide Ghanaians with a first class government whose sole aim will be to improve their living conditions.

Nana Addo insisted another four years in the hands of Mahama will cost Ghana a great deal hence the need for change.

He said, “The experience that he claims to have is a bad experience. An experience that is costing the people of Ghana. We want to bring that experience to an end on December 7. This is my third attempt at the presidency – 2008, 2012 and I’m here again. I say help me.
