Round 2 Virtual Rally NPP Campaign || The first-ever and currently the most talked-about political rally in Ghana was held on Sunday, September 13, 2020.
In the current situation of the country, political parties are strategizing to fit into the new normal.
Ghana is in its electioneering year and as usual, the campaign season is lit but in the midst of the Coronavirus plague, it takes a party that has the interest of the Ghanaian populace at heart to roll out initiatives to benefit the people without endangering their lives.
As part of measures to protect as well as bring the campaign rally to the homes of the citizenry, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), on Sunday, held a virtual rally dubbed Round 2 Virtual Rally which is the first of its kind in the political history of Ghana.
It could also be registered in the political records that the NPP is the first to hold a virtual rally in the country.
The Round 2 Virtual Rally was inspired by the party’s 2016 HOPE Campaign.
The HOPE Campaign gave Ghanaians hope of a better Ghana under the leadership of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
HOPE stands for Honesty, Opportunity, Prosperity and Education, and these four pillars, the NPP believes, have been achieved in the first term of the President Akufo-Addo.
The NPP’s Round 2 rally targeted particularly the youth because they are the future leaders. It was not only interested in the welfare of the youth but also to groom and inspire confidence and hope in them.
The rally under the hashtag ”Round2” was also aimed at the NPP clinching a landslide victory in the December 7 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah and the party’s National Organizer, Sammi Awuku among others who spoke at the event on Sunday took turns to whip the confidence of Ghanaians to give #4more4Nana.
They believed a good government led by President Nana Akufo-Addo deserves another opportunity to do more good works in the nation.
Sunday’s rally pushed for a second term for the current administration to fulfill its manifesto to Ghanaians.
A reminder of some of the promises for the next four years of the Akufo-Addo administration is more free education, free Wi-Fi to all tertiary institutions, grant for student loans without a guarantor, a National Rental Scheme to provide affordable apartments for young graduates, continuity in the payment of teacher and nurses trainees’ allowances, an airport and a new harbor in Cape Coast and many more good initiatives to enhance the progress of the economy.
National Organizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammi Awuku, on his part opined that the December 7, 2020, polls would be between prosperity and poverty.
He called on Ghanaians to consolidate the gains made by retaining the current administration, since a vote for the NDC would certainly destroy all the good works done so far.
Like the adage that “he who climbs a good tree deserves a good push”, Mr Awuku said, “the President has begun a good work and deserves a good push by the Ghanaian electorates.’
“The NPP administration has initiated policies including free Senior High School which has helped poor and deprived families send their wards to school…..if the NPP had been retained after former President Kufour left office, Ghana would have several factories and other solid policies aside from the free SHS….,” he added.
According to the Speakers which included Sheila Bartels, NPP Parliamentary Candidate for Ablekuma North and Akosua Manu, Deputy CEO of the National Youth Authority (NYA), these and many more are the reasons for a Round 2 for the President.
