Atta Mills Fun Club inaugurated in Tamale

Tamale, July 20, GNA - Hajia Raliatu Yakubu, Northern Regional Women's Organizer of National Democratic Congress (NDC) has urged members of the party, especially first time voters to register when the Electoral Commission opened the voters register.

Hajia Raliatu made the call on Saturday at the inaugural ceremony of Atta Mills Fan Club in Tamale.

She said attending rallies, using party paraphernalia and having party identification cards would not bring the NDC into power unless party supporters registered and voted massively for the party flagbearer and it's Parliamentary Candidates in the forthcoming general elections in December.

Hajia Raliatu alleged that some people were going round collecting Voters Identification Cards from women with the promise of giving them loans and cautioned NDC women to be wary of such people.

She told the women to collect the loan when they were given to them but should not hand over their Voters Identification Cards.


She entreated Ghanaians to consider the hardship they were going through and

take a wise decision by voting NDC back to power, come December. Alhaji Huudu Yahaya, First Vice-National Chairman of the NDC urged the electorate to consider their present living conditions under the NPP government as against when the NDC was in power and vote wisely.

"What was the price of a ball of kenkey, a bag of cement, a gallon of kerosene

in the NDC era and what their prices are now", he queried. Alhaji Yahaya appealed to the NDC faithful to remain law abiding and refuse to be provoked by the insults and intimidation of the opposition and rather concentrate on carrying out their campaign to win more souls to the NDC fold to ensure a resounding victory for the party in the December elections.

The Atta Mills Fun Club consisted of sympathizers of the NDC from all the three constituencies in the Tamale Metropolis.
