Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flag-bearer aspirant says the party has competent human resource capable of providing first class government for the country.
He said Ghana is now looking for people with experience, expertise and skills, who could work to resolve the current socio-economic problems, created by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government and would put it back on the path of growth and development.
According to him what Ghana needed now, is for the delegates of the party to give him one more chance to lead the party and win the 2016 elections to enable him to put in place a competent team that would provide the needed leadership to turn the country around.
Nana Addo stated this when he addressed party delegates from all the 47 constituencies in the Ashanti region, in Kumasi, as part of his campaign tour on Friday.
He said the better Ghana agenda promised by the NDC had collapsed and the country was now in disarray.
Nana Addo said Ghanaians were now looking up to the party to elect somebody capable enough of bringing all the party members together to win the 2016 elections to redeem the country from its present economic mess.
He said the party had learnt great lessons from the outcome of the Supreme Court ruling, and that, the party was now putting all the experiences together to ensure that it won the 2016 elections at the polling stations.
He also thanked the party delegates for always rallying behind him and said the greatest honour he has had in his life was the presidential candidacy of the NPP.
"What we need now was for all party members to unite and commit themselves to work hard to recapture power in the 2016 elections."
Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, the 2012 running mate of Nana Addo, said the country was in serious economic mess due to bad governance and the incompetence of the NDC government.
Ghana, he said, needs a decisive, visionary and committed leader, who is capable of putting together a team of experts and capable hands to redeem the country.
Dr Bawumia, said if the NPP wanted to win the 2016 elections, then there would be no need to experiment a new presidential candidate since Nana Addo was capable of winning the elections.
All the regional executive members, constituency chairmen, Members of Parliament (MPs) from the region and national executive committee members from the region, endorsed Nana Addo at the meeting and pledged their unflinching support to him in the special delegates' voting on August 31, to render the October 18, national delegates conference a mere formality.
