NPP campaign bases on truth and not propaganda

     Mrs Agnes Okudzeto, First Vice-Chairperson of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), said on Friday that the party's campaign guiding principle was the graphic presentation of achievements of the party for assessment by the people.
     She said that explains why the executive structure of the party at all levels had no position for a propaganda officer.
     Mrs Okudzeto was addressing a durbar of mainly women party activists in the South–Dayi constituency at Tongor-Dzemeni on Friday.
     Mrs Okudzeto, who accompanied Mrs Rebecca Akufo Addo, wife of NPP flag bearer on a two-day tour of the Volta Region, said propaganda, which entailed craftily using lies and half truths to win sympathy of people, was not part of the NPP style.
     She said NPP performance was inviolable and could not be erased by messages and images of lies by other parties.
     Mr Kofi Dzamesi, Volta Regional Minister, who was on the trip said projects the NPP government brought to the Dzemeni had established a bond between the party and the people there, which could not be broken by dishonest representations by other parties or individuals.
     Mrs Akufo-Addo who commenced her tour at Juapong with a meeting with market women continued to Nkwanta and Kpassa in the northern part of the region.
     Her programme hit a snag when on her return from Kpassa, the entire retinue including some wives of defeated aspirants to the NPP presidential candidature, Mr Dzamesi, party activists and hangers-on were held up for about two hours behind an articulated truck carrying scrap and a bus, stuck deep in mud on a partially completed culvert.
    Mrs Akufo-Addo had told a rally at Kpassa that the roads in the area would be of paramount concern for her husband when he was elected president.
     At all her stops, including Kadjebi she extolled the NPP policies of National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), School Feeding Programme, Capitation Grant, infrastructure build-up.
     The trip which should have continued to Ho and Dzodze was called off due to the death of the Mr Kwadwo Baah-Wiredu, Finance and Economic Planning Minister.
