Dr Kwame Addo-Kufuor, Minister of Interior, has asked the electorate to reflect on the achievements of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government and retained it in power.
He said the party's policy of ensuring liberty and freedom of Ghanaians had brought about relative peace and development.
Dr Addo-Kufuor was addressing traders at the Kumasi Central Market on Saturday as part of the NPP campaign in the Ashanti Region.
He gave the assurance that if the NPP was retained in power come the December 28, 2008 presidential run-off, the party would continue its programme of seeking the welfare of the people to bring about peace, unity and prosperity.
The Interior Minister also assured voters of their safety before, during and after the run-off, saying those who wanted to foment trouble or disturb the peace would be dealt with under the law.
Dr Addo-Kufuor urged the traders to turn up in their numbers to vote for the NPP, which had instituted pragmatic economic measures towards an improvement of their welfare.
"Do not listen to detractors, who want to play down the stupendous achievements of the NPP in its eight-year rule but vote massively for the party," he added.
Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, MP-elect for Manhyia, denied rumours by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) that some of their supporters were assaulted after the December 7 elections.
