The Minister of Communications Dr Omane Boamah has called on voters to make a choice between unity and divisiveness in the 2016 election.

According to him, the President John Mahama, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, stands for unity, while the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, stands for divisiveness.

He made the call when he addressed thousands of NDC supporters on Saturday during the launch of the party's manifesto in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region.

He said: “On December 7, you will be called upon to make a choice between unity and divisiveness, Come December 7, you will be called upon to make a choice between progress and retrogression.

"On December 7, you be called upon to make a choice between humility and arrogance. We and the generality of Ghanaians, have decided to choose to unity, to choose progress and to choose humility, and that is why we are saying JM-Toaso [JM Continue]. We in the NDC, we believe all men are created equal.”

Dr Omane Boamah also touted the achievement of president Mahama especially in the health sector, saying he has a "solid rock of achievement."

He said in the Brong Ahafo region, five polyclinic projects are underway. "In the Ashanti Region, by the end of 2017, at least he would have added a 1000 hospital beds to their current stock. I am referring to the Military hospital in Afari, the district hospital in Bekwai, Fomena and Tepa, and other district hospitals all around the country."

"But that is not all, in the Greater Accra Region you talk about Ridge Hospital, Police Hospital, University of Ghana Teaching Hospital and the District hospitals for Madina and Kwabenya," he said.

Omane Bomoah also said the president in his second term will build additional 35 polyclinics across the country.

“…But the future is far more important than the past and the present. And that’s why President Mahama is saying that over the next four years, he is going to build 35 polyclinics across the country.”

“And all these Hospital projects will add 6,000 additional hospital beds to our stock and so if you are a nurse, whether private or government trained and you are looking for a job, the opportunities are right here; because assuming two nurses will even be assigned to each of the 6,000 beds, that’s 12,000 nurses to be recruited.”
