Nana Akufo-Addo responding to cheers at Kumasi. INSET: Nana Addo exchanging pleasantaries with Otumfuo Osei Tutu II at the Manhyia Palace yesterday

NANA ADDO Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the two-time presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has promised to break his silence about his political future on Thursday, March 20, 2014 at a press conference in Accra.

?I will disclose my future plans in politics during a press conference in Accra on Thursday March 20, 2014,? Nana Akufo-Addo said, to a thunderous applause by enthusiastic-looking NPP faithful.

He was addressing the Ashanti Regional Executives, constituency chairmen and Members of Parliament (MPs) of the NPP in the region at the Georgia Hotel in Kumasi yesterday.

Nana Akufo-Addo stated further that what he wanted to do with his political life?which he would announce on Thursday?would benefit his beloved NPP and Ghana at large, pleading with the party?s supporters to wait for just one-week.

According to him, he would gather the cr?me de la cr?me of Ghanaian journalists at a press conference on the day in Accra, where he would announce what he would wish to do as far as his political career was concerned.

He explained that after six months of sojourn abroad, where he reflected on his political future, it was prudent for him to seek the opinion of key party members before he finally announced his intentions, and passionately appealed to party faithful across the length and breadth of the country who had intensified pressure on him to announce his future political plans, to exercise restraint.

Nana Addo was yesterday welcomed into the Ashanti Regional capital of Kumasi with ?No Nana, No Vote,? amid drumming and dancing and chanting of party songs by a colossal crowd, most of who donned NPP cloth and t-shirts.

The NPP 2012 presidential candidate?s entry into the party?s key support base?Kumasi?shook the city to its foundation with all activities coming to an abrupt halt ? as if he had been elected president.

According to him, he was touring the country to contact some key party people like ex-President John Agyekum Kufuor, before finally making his future plans public.

Mahama?s Failure

Nana Akufo-Addo observed that Ghanaians were craving for the NPP to return to political power in 2016 to restore the country to the path of prosperity because the NDC government, led by President John Mahama, had failed the nation.

He noted with concern that the NDC had woefully failed to deliver even a single of its numerous promises made to the electorate, stressing the need for the NPP to wrest political power to rescue Ghanaians from their hardships.

Unity

Nana Akufo-Addo hammered on the need for the rank and file of the NPP to unite in order for the largest opposition political party to oust the NDC in 2016.

?Unity is absolutely crucial for out victory in 2016,? the NPP top notch emphasized.

Nana Akufo-Addo stated that he had not given his support to any of the candidates currently vying for key national positions in the party, urging the NPP delegates to take note.

Wontumi

He described the Ashanti Regional NPP Chairman, Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, aka ?Wontumi,? as a hard working and dynamic leader and entreated the party supporters to rally behind him.

At the end of the programme, the party faithful mobbed Nana Akufo-Addo as he exchanged pleasantries with them.

Nana Addo then moved through the city in a convoy.
