Nana Akufo-Addo has described this year's election as an opportunity to get "rid of the economic hardship and bad governance" of the governing National Democratic Congress, speaking to a crowd of about 10,000 at a campaign rally in Awatu Senya East, popularly called Kasoa on Sunday.

Police had a hectic time controlling the overzealous crowd who had gathered for the event, which was to launch the campaign of the Member of Parliament, Mavis Hawa Koomson. Carrying banners reading "the battle is still the lord's," and "Nana is our president," the NPP supporters clambered on buildings and railings to catch a glimpse of him as he spoke.

"We will bring a good government led by Akufo-Addo to bring development and turn around the economy," Akufo Addo said. "You have heard me talk about how we are going to address the challenges of the country. We want to industrialise the economy by establishing one factory in every district. How we are going to revive our agriculture and make it possible to feed ourselves in Ghana. These are the solutions that we have for the development of our people."

Akufo Addo, the New Patriotic Party flagbearer, told his audience that he was excited to be here to join them launch the campaign of their MP, saying they should "have confidence in the promises I make to you. I will honour my promises when I am voted into office."

In a wide-ranging speech touching on the challenges of the Ghanaian economy, the need for voters to come out in their numbers to vote on December 7, the NPP leader also took a swipe at the manifesto launch of the NDC in Sunyani on Saturday.

According to him, there was confusion as to who actually wrote the manifesto. He said the campaign coordinator for the re-election bid of President Mahama, Kofi Adams, said the president was not involved in the drafting of the manifesto.

Then a member of the manifesto committee comes to say president Mahama had an idea of the content of the manifesto, he continued. Finally, he added, the president came to say he drafted the manifesto.

"How can the drafting of one manifesto be rocked with such confusion," he asked to cheers from the crowd.

"If there is so much confusion on a simple issue of manifesto, why won't there be so much confusion in the country," he quizzed. "We will come and get rid of these confusions and put the country on a better scale."

He also pleaded with voters in Kasoa  to retain their  MP and also vote massively for him to become president.

"Vote for [Hawa Koomson] to continue with her good works," he said.

He also asked party activists to knock on doors, explain to voters the message of the party in other to win their vote.
