NPP targets Wa Central seat
From Musah Umar Farouq, Wa
A group calling itself “Friends of Isaac” in the Wa Municipality of the Upper West Region has appealed to the constituents to vote massively for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate come the December polls.
According to the group, this year elections would be peaceful and violence free.
The coordinator of the group, Mr. Seidu Issaka, who was addressing a cross section of the press at the Wa central constituency office of the NPP last Saturday, and donated T-shirts valued at GH¢1,500 to the parliamentary candidate, said the gesture was their contribution towards ensuring that the party wins the Wa Central seat, currently being occupied by the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Mr. Issaka reminded all and sundry that before the 1992 general elections, the Wa central constituency was a stronghold of the NPP, and that this year, the party would be making history by annexing the seat hands down.
“This great sign of victory is hanging precariously in the air against the NDC and their candidate, and we the ‘Friends of Isaac’ are well aware of this singular fact of victory, and we want to start pushing for it seriously till the ultimate is achieved,” he said, adding, “There has not been any change, in terms of the wellbeing of the people, and the provision of physical infrastructure befitting the status of the people since the country returned to constituency rule in 1992. This, we believe, will be reversed if the NPP candidate wins the election.”
Receiving the T-shirts, the NPP parliamentary candidate for Wa central, Mr. Issahaku Tahir Moomin, thanked the group for the kind gesture, and said it was worthy of emulation by all supporters of the NPP.
Mr. Tahir said what the party needed was victory in the December polls, and that they were going to work until victory is achieved for the party, so that the toil of their benefactors would not be in vain.
“We are not going to relax; we will do our best as we have been doing before, and victory will be ours.”
