The Oti Regional Organiser of the NPP, Abubakar Salifu aka Oti Abu has explained that Since 1992, the NPP’s believe in national cohesion has informed its choice of always having both Christians and Muslims pair up to lead the country’s development.
This decision has proven to pay off in many ways, particularly in ensuring the policies implemented by the NPP government are more inclusive and fairly spread.
He noted that “If today, you have residents in the Zongo Communities sent to Cuba to study medicine on scholarship and many others in key positions in the NPP government, that is proof that, Nana Addo and Bawumia are the safest hands for Ghana’s development.”
He made the statement when Oti Regional executives of the Governing New Patriotic Party interacted with members of the Zongo Community in the Buem constituency of the Oti Region.
The government’s spokesperson on governance and legal affairs, Mr. Herbet Krapa who also joined the campaign team, expressed gratitude to the Zongo community and traders for the warm reception which could not be compared to times past.
He also thanked them for commending the good policies of the NPP, particularly the Free SHS programme, NABCO and the Planting for Food and Jobs programs which is securing the future of the youth.
He said the residents are right for admitting “it is not the best to keep voting for the NDC since 1992 and have nothing to show for it. If we all (Zongos) agree the One-way voting style has not helped us, it is time to change the voting pattern towards the NPP’s Presidential Candidate Nana Akufo-Addo and Lawrence Aziale, the parliamentary candidate, so they can do more to improve the Zongos”.
The Oti Regional Women’s Organizer, Olivia Glago appealed to the women to consider the future of their children, especially the girls, who have been given the opportunity to reach higher in life through free SHS.
She noted that, the support from MASLOC to female traders in the district will be expanded next year so, they can improve their businesses.
The team which was was also at the Jasikan Market appealed to the traders to vote massively to retain the Nana Addo and elect an NPP MP for the first time to attract more development to the area.
On their part, the Leaders of the Zongo Community appealed to the government to situate the proposed Islamic Secondary School in Jasikan since there is a 50-acre land dedicated for the purpose.
