Mr Cletus Avoka, Majority leader in Parliament, has described President John Dramani Mahama as the best and the most experienced candidate to run the country effectively.

The Majority leader, who is also the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Zebilla Constituency, said this on Wednesday when he launched the National Democratic Congress Party (NDC) manifesto for 2012 at Zebilla.

“Among the Presidential Candidates President Mahama stood tall. He has served as MP, Minister of State, Vice President and currently a President. This is the type of leaders Ghanaians should vote for to improve upon their living conditions”, he stressed.

He said President Mahama is also humble just like the late President Mills and appealed to all Ghanaians to vote massively for him to continue with the good works saying “just within the three and half years of the NDC reign, there had been unprecedented development under this government”.

He expressed confidence that the NDC Party would win by a comfortable margin in the impending elections scheduled for December in the constituency.

“The considerable number of prominent people like chiefs, the clergy, youth leaders, women leaders and party sympathizers here are a clear indication of victory for the party”, he said.

He appealed to all ward chairmen, party supporters and party sympathizers to become campaign managers of the party and to campaign vigorously for it to retain power.

He said plans were far advanced to construct the Zebilla and Gbantua Markets which the NPP government abandoned adding that all township roads including the Zebilla road leading to Burkina Faso will be tarred and opened up for international trade.

The District Chief Executive for the area, Alhaji Adam Imoro Anaba, said under the able leadership of the MP, a lot of projects including the construction of 19 schools, five health facilities, 157 boreholes, expansion of the School Feeding programme in the District from two to 22 among others has been acheived.

He appealed to the people to retain the party to enable it continue to deliver to redeem them from hardship.
