The NPP in the Northern Region has described the Northern Regional Minister as someone who the NDC does not have confidence and trust in.
Unlike other Regions such as the Ashanti Region where the Regional Minister is the Campaign Manager, the Northern Regional Campaign Manager is the Minister of Agriculture. This is a clear indication that the NDC lacks trust in the Northern Regional Minister, Hon. Abdallah Abubakari.
Addressing a cross section of residents of Mamprugu in Tamale, the Northern Regional Secretary of the NPP, Mr Sule Salifu, cautioned voters in the Region especially those in Mamprugu and Walewale not to vote for the NDC and and the Regional Minister who is contesting as MP for the Walewale constituency because he lacks the influence and the trust of his own party to bring any development or initiative to the suffering people of the Region . The Regional Secretariat of the NPP also appealed to the electorates not to exchange Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia who will be a competent Vice President and Head of the economic management team when the NPP wins in December for a Regional Minister who doesn’t have the confidence and trust of his own party and therefore brought in during injury time for propaganda reasons.
According to Mr Salifu, even in opposition, Dr Bawumia has elevated the 3 Northern Regions to a different level and will do all things possible to bridge the developmental gap between the South and North as promised by the flagbearer of the NPP through several policy interventions.
The Regional Secretary added that there was nothing new for the NDC to do for the North. “If 8 years has not been enough for the NDC under President Mahama to do good for the North, this is not the time”, he added.
A vote for Nana/Bawumia would be the best thing to happen to Ghana on December 7.
