Ms Bridget Dzogbenuku, flagbearer, Progressive People’s Party (PPP), has promised a new leadership with “bold ideas and actions” to win the December polls and transform the country.
She also pledged to restore good values, discipline and patriotism in the country when voted into power.
Ms Dzogbenuku made the pledge when she was outdoored as the Flagbearer of the PPP in Accra on Saturday.
She said, “We have been promised a better Ghana and real change over the years but all we have seen is two sizes of the same coin with widening gap between the rich and poor.“
For the nation to progress, she appealed to the electorate to vote for the PPP to implement its innovative ideas to develop the country.
The PPP Flagbearer promised to lead an incorruptible government, ensure a Free Compulsory Basic Education, peace and security, growth at all levels as well as, inclusive leadership.
She advised the public to be wary of political parties promising freebies because they were unsustainable and dis-empowering.
Ms Dzogbenuku, was the running mate of Papa Kwesi Nduom on the ticket of the PPP in the 2016 general election and the first woman to have been selected as the party’s Presidential Candidate.
Brigitte Dzogbenuku is the founder and Executive Director of Mentoring Women Ghana (MWG), which inspires and empowers young women and girls to make a positive difference in their communities.
