The Upper East Regional Women’s Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mrs Georgina Ayamba has congratulated all parliamentary candidates who emerged victorious in the party’s parliamentary primaries held on Saturday, June 20, 2020.
She equally commended all party executives, delegates and aspirants for the peaceful and successful manner in which “our internal contest were conducted”.
A statement signed and issued in Bolgatanga on Sunday, June 21, 2020 by Mrs Ayamba extended “warm felicitation to our elected parliamentary candidate for Navrongo Central, Ms Tangoba Abayage, parliamentary candidate for Zebilla, Mr.Frank Fuseini Adongo and that of the Tempane Constituency, Mr Joseph Dindiok Kpemka who had an overwhelming acclamation on Friday, June 19, 2020”.
The statement further noted that “for the first time in the history of our party in the Navrongo Central constituency, an industrious and trailblazing colleague woman Ms Tangoba Abayage, a replica of the late Hajia Hawa Yakubu is poised to retain the Navrongo central seat for the NPP”.
It observed that Ms Abayage “is the first female Upper East Regional Minister to become the Constituency’s parliamentary candidate and will subsequently retain the seat for the NPP in the general elections”.
“Ms Abayage has the unflinching support of all constituency women organizers and the women’s wing of the party like any other parliamentary candidate in our pursuits of victory come 2020 general elections,” the statement stressed.
No winners nor losers
It pointed out that there were no losers nor winners in the primaries, and that the NPP family won and “shall work hard with the support of all to retain our three (3) seats and increase our parliamentary seats in the region”.
Mrs Ayamba therefore entreated elected parliamentary candidates to reach out to their contenders who did not win to resolve their differences to help build a united front for victory in the general elections.
She equally advised those who were unsuccessful not to be disheartened but rather support their parliamentary candidates to win their respective seats.
“I urge all party members and sympathizers to rally behind their respective parliamentary candidates to retain power in 2020 and increase astronomically our parliamentary seats,” the statement added.
It indicated that the unprecedented development witnessed in Ghana under the Nana Addo-Bawumia led government continues to make the NPP, the best choice of the Ghanaian people for progress and prosperity.
