Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Flag-bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has said he has faith in the people of Cape Coast though his entourage was ignored in the coastal town during their Aboakyere festival recently.
He said the unfortunate incident would not in anyway discourage him in the pursuit of a political career and that he would visit Cape Coast and its environs anytime he was invited.
Nana Addo said these at a thank you tour of some parts of Tarkwa on Thursday.
He said though the incident is unfortunate, it would not affect his personal affection for the chiefs and people of Cape Coast.
He said the NPP would soon launch its strategies for the 2012 elections and this would help the party to work and achieve electoral victory in 2012.
According to him, the roles played by the various individuals before, during and after the August 7 primaries of the party were a clear manifestation of the genuine desire of Ghanaians for the NPP to serve the nation again in 2012.
Nana Addo said the NPP will continue to promote peace and unity among the various camps of the individuals who contested and the experiences and expertise of all would be tapped for the best interest of the party.
He therefore appealed to supporters of the party to work as a unified body, avoid confrontations but rather adopt non-violent means in resolving political differences.
At the palace of Osagyefo Kwamena Enimil, Paramount chief of Wassa Fiase, the Chief advised the NPP to use peace and dialogue to resolves difference and avoid the use of inflammatory language during campaigns should aim at offering alternative suggestions for the good of the country.
