AWUKU: 2020 WILL BE A CONTEST OF RECORDS

Politics

The national organiser of the New Patriotic Party, Sammi Awuku, says the 2020 elections will be fought on the records of the two leading political parties, the NPP and NDC (National Democratic Congress), and not on the snatching of ballot boxes.

The national organiser of the New Patriotic Party, Sammi Awuku, says the 2020 elections will be fought on the records of the two leading political parties, the NPP and NDC (National Democratic Congress), and not on the snatching of ballot boxes.

 

He said it was important that the NDC is fully made aware that “the era where ballot boxes are snatched is past”.

Mr Awuku made these comments as he launched the NPP’s Upper East regional youth wing in Bolgatanga.

Go all out

Mr Awuku urged party members to go all out to ensure that they protect the 2020 election, just as they would protect their own family members.

“We owe the next election to the next generation of our country,” he said.

He urged all NPP faithful also to offer their support towards realising the policies that convinced Ghanaians to vote for the party in the lead-up to the 2016 election.

“Let us offer our party the biggest support and encouragement. It has not been easy since we came in, but when you have a government that is determined to achieve for its people regardless of the obstacles, and regardless of the challenges, we are always determined to move beyond our comfort zone,” Mr Awuku said.

He sounded a note of caution to the NDC that the NPP, though determined to govern Ghana according to the tenets of democracy and the rule of law, will not allow itself to be intimidated by any other political party.

Policies

Mrs Paulina Abayage, Upper East Regional Minister, said the government’s flagship Planting for Food and Jobs programme has helped over 60,000 people in the region.

“As I speak with you, almost 100 communities in this region have been given out for rural electrification,” she said.

The NPP has the roadmap for winning the hearts of people in the Upper East, Mrs Abayage said, which promises to translate into votes.
