Akuffo Addo accuses Mahama of buying votes with Landcruisers

The NPP flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo has accused his main opponent and incumbent President John Mahama of resorting to “goodies-for-votes” campaign to buy the conscience of the electorate.

He claimed Mahama embarked on similar vote-buying strategies in the run-up to the 2012 campaign and has called on Ghanaians to be wary of such ploy.

“In 2012, they shared so many items. It was our taxpayer’s money that was used for this. That is why we are suffering today. It has started again,” Nana Addo said when he kicked off his tour of the Eastern region.

“This year, they are distributing (Toyota Landcruiser) Prados. They will starve you for 4 years and only show up to bring you goodies a few months to elections so you vote for them. After taking the goodies, and voting for them, the hunger returns and will be worse than what you experienced in the past,” he said.

Nana Akufo-Addo, thus, urged the electorate not to entertain such this year, and urged them to support the NPP in this year’s elections.

“Ghanaians have suffered too much. God did not put us on this rich land for us to be poor. It is bad leadership that makes us poor. We are coming to change the circumstances of our country. We will institute measures to bring relief to the Ghanaian.

“I am not into politics to steal the monies of poor Ghanaians or to be at the receiving end of bribes.

I came to put the little wisdom and knowledge Ghana has given to me to help develop Ghana. So this year, everyone should ride on the back of the Elephant, so we can bring development to every part of the country,” he aded.

Nana Akufo-Addo also visited Otu Kwadwo, a community in the constituency, where he interacted with its residents.
