Incumbent Member of Parliament for the Ablekuma West constituency, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has called on Ghanaians to vote out President John Mahama because “Ghanaians are tired” of the festering corruption and hardship.

According to her, Ghanaians were tired of the corruption and thievery within government and urged the electorate to vote against President Mahama and the NDC.

Addressing party supporters at a rally at Shiabu, Dansoman, in the Ablekuma West constituency on Tuesday, 4 October, during Nana Addo's tour of the Greater Accra Region, she said "Are we going to allow them to continue with their thievery when there are no jobs and Ghanaians are suffering? Are we not tired of the corruption, lack of jobs, inability to pay our children's fees? It is time for us to change for development and prosperity."

Ursula Owusu-Ekuful added that, "It is time to vote for change, to vote for Nana Akufo-Addo, who God has ordained to come and deliver us from this suffering. I've worked with Nana Akufo-Addo and I know his mettle. He is capable. At his age, Nana Akufo-Addo is not taking care of children like some others are, for him to go stealing state funds to take care of his family. He is coming to fix the country for us."

She said the Mahama government only "know how to squander ill-gotten money but do not know how to fix the country".

On the part of the flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo, he said, the party will say "thank you" to any disgruntled member who decides to quit the party just because he may have lost an internal election.

"Our party selects leaders though internal elections. I, myself, was elected through such a process. True party people stay with the party whether they win or lose. My colleague Alan Kyerematen, who I beat in our primaries, is still here with me. He even speaks on my behalf. However, if you lose internal elections and you get disgruntled and decide to leave the party, then you are not a true NPP member. So, if you say you are quitting the party because you lost an election, we will say: 'Thank you very much for your services, you go, we will stay and fight the fight and make the way to bring the victory to the NPP.' We don't give up, we don't fret, come what may, we are solidly behind the Elephant."
