Volta Regional Chairman of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Kwadwo Gyapong, has maintained that there is nothing the opposition New Patriotic Party can do to change the voting pattern in the region.
Even if the NPP flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo moves from Accra to resettle in the Volta Region from now till the elections, he would not make any impact, he assessed.
According to Mr. Gyapong, the NDC has done a lot for the people of Volta Region to justify why they will not vote for the opposition NPP. He equally doubted if the NDC would be voted for in the Ashanti Region, which is the stronghold of the NPP.
The Regional Chairman was reacting to comments by former President Kufuor that the NPP constructed the Ho Polytechnic and several major roads in the Region despite claims by President Mahama that the NPP did nothing for the Region.
He conceded on Onua FM’s Yen Sempa hosted by Kwame Karikari that “Kufour did some developmental projects in the Region but what the NDC has done for the region is more than the NPP”.
He however maintained, “we should stop the propaganda because the NPP can never win in Volta just as the NDC can never win in the Ashanti Region”.
