The United Front Party (UFP), which was disqualified by the Electoral Commission (EC) from the upcoming elections, has declared its support for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the upcoming presidential and parliamentary polls slated for next month.
The party has, therefore, urged the good people of the country to vote massively for President Akufo-Addo and the ruling NPP government.
At a press conference held in Kumasi on Monday, and jointly addressed by David Essie Bunya, 2016 vice presidential candidate of the party, Alo Nuhu, current National Organiser, and Fred Osei-Agyen, an Elder and Founding Member of the UFP who was also the 2012 vice presidential candidate of the party, the UFP declared that the “NPP has rolled out many more social interventions that we can smell, hear, touch feel and, above all, see.”
“Look at the Free SHS, which has benefited every home in Ghana. The 1D1F is also visible; the Planting for Food and Jobs; free water, free electricity; re-introduction of nurses and teacher trainees allowances; removing the incubation period of NHIS, and even integrating NHIS card to the National ID card.”
Mr. Fred Osei-Agyen said it was unfortunate that their beloved UFP was disqualified from the upcoming elections, but the party’s research team found and advised the leadership that the NPP was the best party to be supported to win the December 7, 2020 elections.
Mr. Osei-Agyen said former President John Mahama was trapped by his party in order to retire him prematurely from politics, and advised the former president to take advantage of the demise of the founder of his party (NDC), former President J.J. Rawlings, to ” throw in the towel as a sign of gratitude for him and the party,” rather than contest the elections and lose miserably.
Mr. Alo Nuhu stated that it was the wish of the Nana Agyenim Boateng-led UFP to be among the parties contesting the 2020 general elections, but the party’s own negligence led to the unfortunate disqualification.
