If policies won elections in Ghana, PPP would’ve won 2012 Elections in first round – PPP member

A member of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has stated that it had one of the multi-faceted manifestoes going into the December 7/8 Elections though founded eight months earlier.

“Mention any national issue and I can tell you the PPP had a message on that,” Kwabena Okyere said on TV3’s News @ 10.

According to him, that the PPP convinced over 60,000 electorates in few months shows it has become a force to reckon with in Ghana politics.

“It is a signal that we did not form a one-election party but a party that can win elections in Ghana,” he told host Bright Nana Amfoh on Monday.

The 2012 PPP parliamentary candidate for Tema Central Constituency said Ghanaian electorates would have voted PPP into power if they were not afraid of change.

“Black people are afraid of change,” he stated.

He said the party, which has lined up a series of activities to mark its first anniversary, will channel effort into urging electorates to vote for it.

“The greatest challenge is getting people not only to like you but to vote for you,” he stressed.

“We just have to continue building,” he added.

PPP’s Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom polled 64, 267 in last year’s elections to come third among the presidential aspirants. His votes represented 0.58 per cent of the total valid votes cast.
