I will use age advantage to win elections – DFP leader

Mr Emmanuel Ansah Antwi, presidential candidate of the Democratic Freedom Party (DFP), on Monday said he had the zeal, enthusiasm and the energy to bring change and restore national hope and confidence to Ghanaians.

He said just as late President Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah used his youthful exuberance to win independence, he (Antwi) would also use his comparatively young age of 43 to win the December 2008 election to bring economic emancipation to the country.

Mr Antwi said this when he paid a courtesy call on Togbe Afede XIV, Agbogbomefia of Asogli Traditional Area, in Ho.

He said as a young man, he is motivated to achieve much for himself and the youth of the country and urged the electorate to vote for the DFP.

Mr. Antwi said his government would use sports and culture to discover talents in the country's youth, which would be harnessed for socio-economic development.

He said one of DFP's principles is equitable distribution of national resources and promised that his government would use revenue from the oil for the benefit of all.

"We will use the oil money to develop the agricultural sector with its success trickling down to education, health and other sectors".

"The situation where few people enjoy and majority wallop in poverty will be a thing of the past under the government of DFP," he said.

Dr. Obed Asamoah, Life Patron of the party, described the DFP as peaceful and a God fearing party and urged the electorate to reject all violent parties and vote for the DFP.

He said the DFP's "green revolution" policy would bring hope and happiness to all especially farmers and people in the agricultural sector.

Togbe Afele II, Divisional Chief of Ho Hliha who represented Togbe Afede, advised all political parties to be peaceful in their campaigns and tolerate each other for peaceful co-existence.
