Nyankumase Ahenkro (C/R), Dec 05, GNA- Vice President Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur on Wednesday rounded up his campaign tour for Election 2012, calling on the Electorate to vote for the best that would bring development for all.

He said the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) has the best presidential and parliamentary candidates and it was providential for the party to have secured the Number One position on the ballot papers.

What is left, he said, is for the Electorate to vote President John Dramani Mahama, the Flagbearer and the parliamentary candidates on Friday, for the President to continue with the Better Ghana programme with policy support from NDC parliamentarians.

The Vice President made the appeal when he addressed a rally at Nyankumase Ahenkro, in the Assin South Constituency in the Central Region after calling on the Nana Kwaintsi Barima,  Adontenhene of Assin Atandanso Traditional Area.

Nana Barima, acting for Nana Tibu Asare II, the Paramount Chief of Assin Atandanso Traditional Area, and his elders received Vice President to the palace.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur, introduced Madam Sabina Appiah Kubi, a former District Chief Executive (DCE) to the Area, as the NDC Parliamentary Candidate to the chief and the people, and asked them to vote for President Mahama, and the candidate based on her good performance as a former DCE.

The Vice President said the NDC is a people centered and development oriented party, and asked the Electorate to vote massively of a first round resounding victory for the NDC as way of expressing their sympathy and giving a traditional funeral donation called ?Nsawa? to the passing of the late President John Evans Atta Mills, the one whom President Mahama succeeded.

He assured the people that the Mahama Administration would continue with all programmes started by the late President Mills to build a better life for all Ghanaians.

Kwaintsi Barima said despite the barring of the Constitution of chiefs from taking part in active politics, they can contribute to the process by advising their subject not to do anything that would derail the peace of the nation.

He appealed to politicians to do everything possible to ensure peaceful election without any violent aftermath, explaining that there is only one nation called Ghana, which should not be destroyed by political mayhem.

Kwaintsi Barima advised politicians should not exploit the high poverty levels in some communities to induce people to violence.

He invoked divine blessings on President Mahama and his Deputy Amissah-Arthur, saying, ?May God bless Amissah-Arthur and President Mahama. May their vision come to pass.

?Let God bless us all so that we can vote in peace.”
