Harness your energies and re-ignite the party in its traditional strongholds- Concerned NDC member to youth groups


A concerned member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Alhaji Tanko Maida has condemned the current provocations and attacks among some youth groups of the NDC in the Tamale Metropolis. The recent violence which happened in some suburbs of Tamale last Sunday after a TV programme by one Alhaji Fuzak, a member of the NDC Alhaji Tanko Maida emphasized is unwarranted and should not be repeated.

He said the NDC’s focus right now is not about splinter groups and fragmented camps within the party in the northern region. The party suffered collateral lost in the 2021 Elections in the region due to the rancor and acrimony among its rank prior to the elections, he added.

These rancor and acrimony Alhaji Tanko indicates denied the formidable force needed to conquer the region and resulted in the NPP splinting the region’s parliamentary seats equally with the NDC, a situation the party least expected. Alhaji Tanko in a press statement noted that the NDC is a party of choice in the region and their division is enabling their opponents make incursions into their strongholds. Therefore, these attacks and the division of the party into camps and groups must stop now.

He said their focus must be to harness their energies and re-ignite the party in its traditional strongholds to market it for a landslide victory, and acquire parliamentary majority in the region. Alhaji Tanko whose father was the first northern regional Chairman of the party, affirmed that Ghanaians are suffering due to the mismanagement of the country’s economy.

He accused the Akuffo Addo government of borrowing more than any government in Ghana’s history with nothing to show. ‘’The cedi is falling every day, the free SHS is a scam, the Akuffo-Addo family and friends NPP government is the serpent mother of corruption. These are very important issues the party’s attention must be focused on, he laments’’. He has therefore called on regional council of elders not to rest on their oars but to continue to intervene and mediate to bring peace into the party.
