As we tactic the December elections, we have waited patiently to listen to the plans that the bash has for the people today of Ghana. That wait has been in vain. Neither the presidential applicant, previous President Mahama, nor the parliamentary applicant listed here in Kwesimintsim, Mr. Philip Buckman has shown that they have an knowledge of our plight or the tips that will make our life far better. Unfortunately, data demonstrate that this has not been the scenario.

We have listened to him in particular person and as a result of his media interactions, and we see someone who actually cares, has the correct ideas, and is demonstrably capable of observing his eyesight through. He is indeed the ideal gentleman for Kwesimintsim at this time. In mild of this, we are saying nowadays, to the whole world, that we are renouncing our membership with the Countrywide Democratic Congress with rapid influence and signing up for the New Patriotic Bash.
