NPP polling station executive joins NDC



A New Patriotic Party (NPP) polling station executive for Tamale north constituency in the 2012 elections has resigned to join the governing National Democratic Congress.

The 73-year old teacher, Mr. Abuba Adam, a native of Walewale in the West Mamprusi district said his resignation is to enable him canvas for votes for the northern regional minister, who is also the NDC parliamentary candidate for the Walewale constituency.

The former NPP polling station executive told Zaa News that he has written formally to the NPP about his decision to enable him to campaign for Mr. Abubakari to be elected as a member of parliament for the Walewale constituency.

The former NPP polling station executive, explaining his resignation to join the NDC, said the northern regional minister, as a development worker, has paid fees for several students and provided support to the needy in the area.

The NDC Walewale parliamentary candidate, Mr. Adam added, has also demonstrated more of his ability and capability to represent the people of Walewale in parliament.

The former NPP polling station executive also rubbished the tribal politics recently being played against the NDC parliamentary candidate by his opponent about his eligibility as a native of Walewale, saying bread and butter issues supersede any other issue.

Those were political machinations to damp their opponent’s spirit because Mr. Abubakari was born in Walewale and by Ghana’s constitution if one stays in a place for five years he or she is qualified to contest in any election, Mr. Adam explained.

“My underground work in Walewale indicates that the minister has what it takes to win the seat to continue his support of the needy and I have no doubt come December 7, Mr Abubakari will emerge victorious,” Mr Adam proclaimed.
