An Accra based business and industrial tycoon, Mr. Seth Aglagoh has called on all registered voters to come out in their numbers and vote for Prof. Atta Mills in order to return the NDC to power in the December 28 presidential run-off.
Mr. Aglagoh, who also contested the last December 7, Parliamentary election on an independent ticket in the Ave-Avenor constituency, has urged Ghanaians to give Prof. Atta Mills and the NDC a Merry Christmas and New Year package of landslide victory in the coming Sunday's Presidential run-off.
In a statement issued at a press conference on Monday at Akatsi in the Volta Region, Mr. Aglagoh said, Ghana, more than ever before, needed a visionary leader who was without blemish and whose strength lies in his transparency and humility.
He said, Ghana, as pace setters in modern democracy in Africa, needed a true leader for the people, elected by the people and the requisite cardinal qualities could only be found in no other person than Prof. John Evans Atta-Mills.
He said the track record of Prof. Atta Mills as a renowned statesman and a former Vice President of Ghana for four solid years was not only impeccable but also stood out of the rest.
The statement continued that it was very unfortunate that this time in the political history of Ghana, the country was threatened by ethnicity, employment based on party affiliation, increasing spate of armed robbery, official corruption and flagrant abuse of power as well as rule of law.
The statement said, in the opinion of many Ghanaians the only man capable of bringing a sigh of relief and able to put back the smile on the faces of the suffering masses was "our own tried and tested politician and statesman, Prof. Atta-Mills."
It emphasized that the NDC had already dictated the pace by securing majority in parliament which indicated that the sovereignty of Ghana, indeed, resided in the power of the thumb, and that any government that failed to meet the needs and aspirations of the people would not deserve their mandate to rule them.
The statement commended all Ghanaians for their vigilance and maturity in defending their sovereignty and demonstrating that the will of the people was, indeed, supreme during the last December 7, general elections.
Mr. Aglagoh congratulated Mr. Doe-Adjaho for winning the just ended parliamentary election that retained him as the MP-elect for the Ave-Avenor constituency.
He said he had been an avowed and committed member of the NDC on whose ticket he contested the parliamentary primaries in 2004 general elections and not a supporter of the NPP was being peddled around.
He called on all the stakeholders of the December 28th, run-off to conduct themselves in a most worthy manner to ensure a credible run-off that would be free, fair, transparent, peaceful and unimpeded.
Finally, Mr. Aglagoh thanked all the people of Ave-Avenor who voted for him and those who did not, during the just ended parliamentary election and urged them to rally behind the NDC to clinch a knockout victory for Prof. Atta Mills on coming Sunday.
The Chairman for the occasion, Mr. Pius Attise, who was a leading member of the campaign team, commended Ghanaians for the peaceful conduct of the December 7, general election, saying; "we are duty-bound to ensure a peaceful transition in the run-off to sustain peace and development in the country.
The general sentiment of the people after the conference was a firm resolution to vote massively for Prof. Atta-Mills.
