Dr Kofi Konadu Apraku, National Campaign Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has stated that research conducted by the party's campaign team had shown that the party would win the December polls.He said reports received from the team and despatched to all the ten regions, indicated that Ghanaians were ready to vote massively for the NPP.Dr Apraku said this to news men last Friday at Agona Swedru after he addressed a two-day meeting organised by the Central Regional Campaign Team for Parliamentarians, Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives, Constituency Chairmen and supporters.He pointed out that the research team had gone to the three northern regions, Central, Brong Ahafo, Ashanti, Eastern, Western and Greater Accra regions to assess the fortunes of the party. The Campaign Director acknowledged the fact that there were pocket of problems in some constituencies, but he said steps were being taken by the party to address them and further enhance the NPP's chance. According to him, even though Nana Akufo-Addo was leading as the research showed, few parliamentary candidates of the party had problems. He said NPP under President John .A. Kufuor had done well and cited the Capitation Grant, which made basic education free, National Health Insurance Scheme, School Feeding Programme, Micro Finance for small scale businesses and roads construction as some of the good works. Dr Apraku for the 19 years of National Democratic Congress (NDC) rule, schools, roads, health facilities and poverty still plagued the three northern regions and noted that Nana Akufo-Addo would bridge the gap between the north and the south when given the nod to become president.He said Ghanaians would not vote for a party, which spoke violence and chaos, but rather would go for a party that preached peace and development.He said there were clear indications that Ghanaians would vote for the party, which could tackle the world economic recession adding, "The NPP government won't sit down for the global economic crisis to overwhelm the nation."Dr Apraku said an NPP government would create enabling environment for investors and solved the housing problem facing the nation.
