Togbe Kwaku Apasu, the chief of Nyive in the Norvisi Traditional Area of the Volta Region, has declared his support for the flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, saying the latter would win the presidential slot in the November polls.
“Nana, I foresee you to be the next president of the Republic of Ghana in the November polls. Ghanaians need you; and so by the grace of God, you will win massively.”
Togbe Apasu made these remarks when addressing a gathering of mourners, including the NPP leader and the National Executives of the party at Odumasi-Krobo in the Eastern Region last Saturday.
The occasion was the funeral of the late Emmanuel Tetteyfio Adjasa, father of Robert Tetteyfio-Adjasa, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) faithful who led over 1,800 (NDC) members to join the New Patriotic Party.
According to the chief, who rules in the border town of the Ho Central constituency, the NDC drafts citizens from Togo to write their names in the Ghanaian voter register and vote for the party during national elections.
“Nana, I can promise you that as for this year, I won’t allow the NDC to register the Togolese in my area again. I have formed a special task force of over 200 men who will see to that. In 2012, the NDC rigged the elections in my area, but this time around, I will never allow that.
“The NDC government has failed Ghanaians; they have been deceiving we the Voltarians, but this time around, we will vote for you. I will lead and campaign for the NPP,” Togbe Apasu assured.
He called on the security agencies to set up taskforces along the borders to prevent foreigners from entering the region to vote.
The chief, who rules over 3,000 people, further posited that Nana Akufo-Addo is a visionary leader who can transform Ghana better because the NDC administration has mismanaged the economy, which has made life unbearable for Ghanaians.
