The Second Lady said politics was all about development, so it was important to vote for people who championed the development of the country and urged the people to renew the mandate of President Akufo-Addo.

Mr Pius Enam Hadzide, Deputy Information Minister, said the NPP attitude and interventions speak volumes for the Zongo communities in the country and determined to enhance development in those communities to improve the lives of the people.

Mr Johnson Avuletey, Deputy Volta Regional Minister, said the NPP was battle-ready to win the votes of the people as it had carried out lots of life changing projects in the region.
