The running mate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang says it is time to make a change in government.
Speaking at her outdooring at the University of Professional Studies, she charged Ghanaians to go out and make a bold statement in the 2020 election.
Prof. Agyemang said the election 2020 is not an easy walk for the NDC but very possible they will clinch power and turn the fortunes of the nation around.
“Ghana must be in full flight, let us rebuild inclusive institutions. I call on all gallant men and women that we can let this country regain its status and the time to do that is now, the time for change is now. We will succeed. May God bless our determination to serve our country and we will not relent but will go every length to ensure Ghana gets back to it’s feet, Our resolve to serve Ghana remains unbroken”.
Prof. Agyemang said it is her mission to see the concerns of the youth of Ghana dealt with and that will be her focus.
“It will be my mission to ensure that the voices and concerns of our children, our youth and our aged, and our persons with disabilities are reflected in critical decisions.
“Together, we can strategize to solve long-standing problems of needless and unproductive discrimination, and thrive as valued citizens.
“I want you, all of us in whatever demographic category to know, that I will carry your voices forward. Together, we can make it happen.”
