The Northern Regional secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mr Salifu Sule has called on the constituency executives of the NPP in the Zabzugu of Northern Region to campaign towards the November elections based on policies and not chieftaincy.
“The NDC after benefiting hugely from chieftaincy politics are now shying away from their own political promise of finding lasting peace in Dagbon and beyond”.
According to him, it will be surprising and disingenuous on the part of the NDC to want to do chieftaincy politics this year. He explained.
Let us match them with policy ideas. Whilst the NPP brought about the NHIS, the NDC is collapsing it, Whilst the NPP brought about employment for the youth , the NDC on its part has created an empire of unemployment. The rate of suffering, corruption and underdevelopment under President Mahama stands unprecedented. Mr Salifu added.
These are the issues we must confront the NDC with, Their policy as the NDC and party in government is to cancel nursing and teacher training college allowances. Our policy as the next party to form government is to bring back these allowances.
The regional secretary also used the occasion to call on the party officers in the Zabzugu area to use very skillful and competent persons as party agents to protect the ballot.
Elections are won at the polling stations not the Supreme Court. “Let us win this election at the polling stations in November”.
The constituency executives also expressed their willingness to do all what they can to support the party to get in power in the November poll.
