JM And Hon. Abdallah Abubakari-The Best Team For Walewale Constituency

If there is anyone in mamprugu within the largest opposition party of

the country who still doubt that walewale constituency cannot be taken

back by the ruling National Democratic Congress;who still wonder if JM

and Hon. Abdallah Abubakari can win in walewale constituency; who

still have faith in the Bawumia factor in mamprugu;then 29th

September, 2016 the day Hon. Abdallah Abubakari filed his nomination

in readiness for the battle at the electoral commission office in

walewale has provided the answer.

It is the answer told by the thousands of supporters within walewale

township alone who came out in their numbers to welcome the northern

regional minister Hon. Abdallah Abubakari into the constituency to

file his nomination at the electoral commission ahead of the 2016

presidential and parliamentary elections. In fact the people have

really chased the elephant into the bush which will never show up

anywhere in walewale constituency and mamprugu as a whole.

It is the answer spoken by young and old, members of the National

Democratic Congress and non members across mamprugu- who sent a

message to NPP fraternity that, JM and Hon. Abdallah Abubakari are the

best team for walewale constituency. There is no doubt about the

National Democratic Congress winning in walewale constituency and the

rest of the four constituencies in mamprugu.

It is left with barely two months and some few days to elections, but

what happened on the historic day of Hon. Abdallah Abubakari filling

shows that, in this years election,at that defining moment, JM and

Hon. Abdallah Abubakari have won in advance.

Hon. Abdallah Abubakari fought long and hard for mamprugu and he has

even fought harder and longer for the constituency he loves. He

endured sacrifices

for mamprugu that most of our opponents in NPP cannot begin to

imagine and we are better off for the services rendered by this brave

and selfless leader within the period of his six months in office as

the northern regional minister.

I personally as a young Democrat congratulate

him (Hon. Abdallah Abubakari) and his Excellency Wumpini John Dramani

Mahama for all they have achieved in mamprugu in even though it will

take the myopic and narrow minded people within the NPP decades to

realize the good works of the duo in mamprugu.

His Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama has achieved a lot in

mamprugu to deserve our votes in this election. He had given us good

drinking water, established college of education in mamprugu, upgraded

the Nalerigu health assistance school to the status of college of

nursing and midwifery school,connecting communities to the national

grid, establishing ICT centers, building of community day schools,

expansion of facilities in the existing Senior high schools,

construction of roads, building of education offices, and many more.

Mamprugu, we have come so far. We have seen so much. But there is so

much more to do in mamprugu if his Excellency Wumpini John Dramani

Mahama is elected as the president of Ghana to continue with his

second term. So in this election, let's ask ourselves whether we want

to be mentioned among those who are going to make John Dramani Mahama

victorious or not? Because John Dramani Mahama Insha Allah will surely

emerge victorious.

This is our chance to answer that call. This is our moment. This is

our time to recapture all the seats we lost to the New Patriotic Party

and open more, the doors of opportunity for ourselves and to change

lives and transform mamprugu as a whole.

Now even as we have chosen his Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama

and our members of Parliament hopefully in all the five constituencies

in mamprugu, there are those who are preparing to divide us-the spin

masters, the negative peddlers who embrace the politics of "anything

goes". We will say to them that in this election- out of many, we are

one;that while we breath, we hope and where we are met with cynicism,

doubt and who tell us that we cannot, we will respond with our slogan

JM zang-tugi for changing lives and transforming Ghana.

I shall return!!!
