He said this is thanks to the reality that the New Patriotic Bash (NPP) government has performed extremely considering the fact that it won energy in 2016.
Mr. Arhin admitted while chiefs are not allowed to have interaction in partisan politics, the endorsements of Akufo-Addo is just to show appreciation to the developments he has introduced to their communities.
“By and significant, it did not come as a surprise to the president simply because literally virtually in all places we’ve been so much, in all the areas we’ve toured so considerably, every single place we’ve been to, by and huge, I can say about 95, 96% of the chiefs who talk at these durbars expressed fulfillment as to the kind of work the president has finished for them in their respective districts. As a outcome of that, urged their topics to vote for the president in the coming elections.”
He went on “so the declaration by the Okyehene did not come by as a shock due to the fact the Okyehene himself outlined some of the factors the president has performed more than the previous 3 and a fifty percent yrs, not only in Okyeman but throughout the place. And for him, this he believes is a good sufficient foundation for the Ghanaian folks to repose their confidence in the president after once again.”
“For me, it did not appear as a shock and I never assume it will come as a surprise to Ghanaians at all due to the fact this has been the pattern given that this doing the job take a look at started.”

Commenting on criticism about endorsement of political parties and politicians by classic chiefs, Mr Arhin mentioned “is there a provision that says chiefs just cannot endorse? There’s a big difference amongst endorsement and there is a variance among anyone urging someone on.”
“At the close of the day, the chiefs have viewed what the president has done for them in their respective districts. You can only admonish any person to go and do a thing but at the conclude of the day when the man or woman goes to vote, its a mystery ballot. No person knows what the human being is heading to do.”
