Ungrateful NDC must commend Bawumia for North East Region - NPP

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has been advised to show appreciation to Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia for championing the course of Mamprugu which has earned it a region.

At a press conference in Walewale responding to a litany of allegations levelled against the government and the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Regional Secretary Sulley Sambian observed that the NDC always latches on lies and propaganda to thrive failing to give credit where it is due.

“Thankfully, our friends today can organize a press conference as regional officers of the NDC because a region was created for us by the NPP government. Thanks to the NPP for fulfilling a campaign promise of creating the North-East Region. But for the creation of this region, we wonder on what platform our friends in the NDC would be standing to organize a press conference as regional officers of the NDC. At least they ought to acknowledge the role played by Dr Bawumia and Hajia Alima in ensuring that our petition for a region caught the attention of the president”, he disclosed at the event covered by MyNewsGh.com.

He noted that the NPP would not have bothered in responding to the pack of lies spewed by the NDC but failure would give some legitimacy challenging the umbrella family to back its allegations with substantial evidence.

“We are tempted to rebut these claims because of the danger that these grand deceptions of the NDC may give legitimacy to a false perception in the minds of a few that the NPP government has not kept faith with people of the North-East Region”, he disclosed.
