Nana Akufo-Addo pledges to strengthen institutions for rule of law

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, flag bearer of New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Monday said the next NPP Government would strengthen the security services and Judiciary to enforce the rule of law for accelerated socio-economic development.

"Our Government will resource all security services, especially the Police and the Courts so that the individual and sanctity of contracts would be respected for accelerated development for Ghana to become a middle income country by 2015," he said.

Nana Akufo-Addo made the pledge during his campaign tour of northern part of the Volta Region at Kpassa.

He noted that with the strengthening of these two sectors, armed robbery and other security related challenges would be tackled professionally to protect national sovereignty, rights and freedoms of the citizenry.

Nana Akufo-Addo gave the assurance that Ghanaians would experience better lives under the NPP Government of 2009. He said Election 2008 should not be a "do and die" affair and was optimistic that all political parties and the Electoral Commission would work to ensure free and fair elections on December 7.

Nana Akufo-Addo urged the electorate in Nkwanta North Constituency to retain Mr Joseph Kwaku Nayan, the sole NPP Member of Parliament in the Volta region in the next Parliament.
