Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has admonished party supporters not to “vote skirt and blouse” in the 2016 elections adding that it could damage the chances of the NDC in retaining power.

Addressing the chiefs and people of Pong–Tamale and Langbensi, the vice presidential candidate for the National Democratic Party (NDC) indicated that he had come to pay homage and also seek permission to campaign in the constituency. 

He said “If we take the hurt from the election of our candidates into the national elections we will be making a big mistake. The big mistake is that our anger would get us to vote skirt and blouse and in the NDC we don’t wear skirt and blouse. We vote Zu for the President and Za for the parliamentary candidate.” 

He further indicated that a more concerted effort is needed on the part of the supporters to retain the party in power to continue the developmental agenda of President Mahama. 

According to the Vice President ‘’if any independent candidate come and say he’s for President Mahama and that he’s the President’s choice so they should vote skirt and blouse should be ignored because it’s a lie’’.

He encouraged the people of Pong –Tamale and Langbensi to vote massively to retain President John Dramani Mahama for more development in their area. 

The Vice president who was on his last phase as part of his four day campaign tour to the region said “Northern Region is a very important region in Ghana, not only the one of the world bank of the NDC. And as they can see the NDC government has done a lot in developing the area because it is dear to their heart and would continue to do more for them.’’
