The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) is hoping to win 30 percent of the popular votes in the Volta region in the 2016 general elections.
According to the party, the failure of the Mahama-led government has demystified the region as its world bank.
The Director of Communications of the NPP, Nana Akomea who disclosed this on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Monday said the goal set by the party is achievable.
In his view, the Volta region is in its deplorable state in spite of voting massively for the ruling party for decades.
“The people of the Volta region are angry because Mahama’s government has failed. Even Chiefs and Queen mothers are speaking against this government because there are highly disappointed,” he stressed.
Nana Akomea said the people in the Volta region is beginning to understand the developmental agenda of the NPP and “what they stand to gain if they vote us to power” thus will vote massively for them in 2016.
The NPP man bemoaned how the Mahama-led NDC has neglected to people who have over the years been loyal to their cause.
Nana Akomea called on all NPP members especially in the Volta region to work assiduously to ensure the 30% target is achieved.
On the contrary, the Deputy Minister for Women, Gender and Social Protection, John Alexander Ackon scoffed at Akomea’s assertion.
He indicated that the suppose 30% target of the NPP in the Volta region will remain a dream because it is highly impossible.
The Deputy Gender Minister noted that government has addressed almost all the challenges in the Volta region therefore their world bank is intact.
Alexander Ackon said despite the “ugly noises” by the NPP, the Mahama-led government remains focused to fulfil the Better Ghana Agenda promise it made to Ghanaians.
