The 'ghost' Mamprugu youth chiefs press conference; joke of the century

Tue, 15 Nov 2016 Source: ali majeed

By Abdul Majeed Ali

Our attention has been drawn to a particular press conference on the

12th November, 2016 by some ghost Youth Chiefs in Mamprugu who

unanimously came out with unfounded lies against the ruling National

Democratic Congress and his Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama in

respect to the development of Mamprugu.

In fact I wept and bled internally when I goggled into Ghanaweb to update myself on the happenings in Ghana and the world at large when I came across this press statement"press conference by Mamprugu youth Chiefs" which was

full of lies with greatest impunity by these so-called'Mamprugu youth

chiefs who are not even recognized anywhere in the kingship of

Mamprugu.

It is undeniable fact that, the proper and the most widely

respected Youth Chiefs (Na-chinadima) in Mamprugu will not compromise

in anyway to do what the ghost Youth Chiefs did just to play the

tribal cards of soliciting support for the New Patriotic Party.

A lot has been achieved by the ruling National Democratic Congress and

his Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama in Mamprugu and we the good

people of Mamprugu are even more optimistic about the future of

Mamprugu in the second term of John Dramani Mahama as the president of

the republic of Ghana.

Mamprugu is already great and strong. And our strength and greatness

does not depend on Nana Addo and the New Patriotic Party. In fact it

doesn't depend on Dr Mahamudu Bawumia either but on the shoulders of

the overlord of Mamprugu Naa Mahami Abdulai Sheriga(Naa Buhagu)and his

Paramount chiefs across Mamprugu and with their blessings Mamprugu

have witnessed significant development under the abled leadership of

their son as the president of Ghana his Excellency Wumpini John

Dramani Mahama.

His Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama had always listen to the

overlord of Mamprugu and the good people of the land with respect. And

no matter how daunting the odds;he had always walk his talk in as much

as development of Mamprugu is concern.

His Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama is the competent president

of the country we all know. That's the president we the good people of

Mamprugu have come to admire. And that's why we can say with

confidence that there has never been a president in Ghana than John

Dramani Mahama who has the development of Mamprugu in heart.

The so-called Mamprugu youth chiefs are exposing their ignorance for

been ungrateful to National Democratic Congress and his Excellency

Wumpini John Dramani Mahama after all, we have achieved in Mamprugu by

the Mahama administration. Prosperity will judge them in denting the

image of the National Democratic Congress for their own selfish

interest.

After the worst performance of the New Patriotic Party eight long

years rule in Mamprugu,we have fought our way back with the competent

president Mahama's administration. We have seen a lot of development

in Mamprugu and we have got the scars to prove everything beyond

reasonable doubt.

After decades of converting Nalerigu teacher training college in

Mamprugu into secondary school by the vision less leadership of the

Danquah-Busia-Dombo tradition in the late 1970's,his Excellency

Wumpini John Dramani Mahama had declared that teacher education and

education as a whole isn't a privilege for few individuals in the

country, but a right for everybody and that really made his Excellency

Wumpini John Dramani Mahama to re-established Gambaga College of

Education and the construction of community day senior high schools

and when completed will supplement the existing senior high schools in

Mamprugu.

The government of the ruling National Democratic Congress

also upgraded the Nalerigu health assistance school to the status of

General nursing and midwifery training school and has equally improved

significantly the infrastructure of the school for teaching and

learning.

The road sector in Mamprugu is not also left untouched by the

president and the ruling National Democratic Congress. The government

has performed tremendously well in construction of the roads in

Mamprugu which is unprecedented in the history of Mamprugu.

The walewale-Nalerigu road is almost complete and works are ongoing on

the Walewale-Wungu road,Walewale-Yagaba road,Walewale-Zangum

road,Kparigu-Shelinvuya road, Walewale-Tampulingu road and many more

whiles the Nasia-Janga road, Guabuliga road and many other roads have

been awarded to contracts. These revelations goes to categorically say

that the press conference by the 'ghost' Mamprugu youth chiefs was

already dead at the point of release and that really exposed their

diabolical agenda towards election 2016 for their political godfather.

To be honest with my distinguished readership, in fact his Excellency

Wumpini John Dramani Mahama will forever be stenciled on the mental

sheets of every succeeding generation of Mamprugu as the best ever

president of Ghana who developed Mamprugu to the satisfaction of the

good people of Mamprugu.

The ruling National Democratic Congress and his Excellency Wumpini

John Dramani Mahama have hooked almost one hundred communities unto

the national grid and many more are awarded to contracts as compared

to the New Patriotic Party administration under former president

Kufour who could only hooked communities less than twenty in the whole

Mamprugu unto the national grid. It is only people who can't think

intellectually will say John Dramani Mahama and the NDC have not

developed Mamprugu upon all these visible scars across Mamprugu within

this administration.

His Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama and the ruling National

Democratic Congress have also fixed the acute water shortage of

Mamprugu.The good people of Kparigu, Nasia, Wungu and many more

communities across Mamprugu have been helped in one way or the other

in getting good drinking water. The Tinguri and Gbani water project

was also completed but could not be commissioned by his Excellency

Wumpini John Dramani Mahama as he did at Kparigu because the ongoing

construction of the Walewale-Nalerigu road which led to some breakages

on the pipes and will be replaced if the works on the road is

completed.

His Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama and the ruling National

Democratic Congress also did tremendously well in the health sector

across Mamprugu. A number of clinics, health centres, and chip

compounds have been established in Mamprugu which helps in providing

health service to the good people of Mamprugu.

It is on records that his Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama

government has constructed sixty(60) Chips compound, clinics and

health centres in Mamprugu and even upgraded some clinics to the

status of hospitals.

In all Bunkurugu district has twenty-two (22)chips compounds and

sixteen of them are functioning properly. In the home district of Dr

Mahamudu Bawumia west mamprusi can equally boast of sixteen chips

compounds, two clinics and the upgradement of Kpasinpke clinic to the

status of hospital all within the ruling National Democratic Congress

government. East mamprusi and Mamprugu Moaduri districts also have

their share of the chips compound with twelve (12) and ten (10) in

Mamprugu moaduri and east mamprusi district respectively.

With all these facts about the happenings in Mamprugu within his

Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama as the president of the country

is so far, the best ever in the history of Mamprugu and if anyone in

the New Patriotic Party fraternity disagree with all these, should

engage me personally on an intellectual debate but the most

unfortunate dishonesty the so called youth chiefs mentioned which even

discredit their press conference was that of the claimed diamond

cement factory established by the NPP which never existed anywhere in

Mamprugu but it could be that it was established on the railway line

constructed by the NPP administration from Accra to Paga which passes

through Mamprugu.

It is left unto the ghost youth chiefs to substantiate their claim on

the nonexistent diamond cement factory abandoned by the ruling

National Democratic Congress.

Time and again,

we the good people of Mamprugu have voted in our numbers for the

National Democratic Congress and that is exactly we did to his

Excellency Wumpini John Dramani as the leader of the NDC in 2012.And

this year, in this election, we are going to vote massively for his

Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama and all the parliamentary

candidates of the NDC across Mamprugu.

With this, join me to reject cynicism and the tribal politics of Dr

Mahamudu Bawumia and his cohorts. Let's summon what is best in us and

vote massively for his Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama to

complete his constitutionally mandated eight years as president of

Ghana like Ghanaians did to former president Jerry John Rawlings and

John A. Kufour.

To be continued........
