With just 96 days to December 7 2020 general elections, the New Patriotic Party in the Sissala East Constituency has launched its campaign team to canvass votes for the party.
The 30-member team that was sworn-in through an oath conducted by Mr. Tanko Dawuda on September 2, 2020, at the Gateway Travelers’ Lodge forms the main frontier in Sissala East to lead the NPP into the 2020 general elections.
According to the NPP Upper West Regional treasurer, Mr. Tanko Dawda the team has been tasked with two missions – to deliver victory for the Parliamentary candidate, Issahaku Amidu Chinnia, and the party’s flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo.
Issahaku Amidu Chinnia would be racing for the Member of Parliament seat with his two akin contenders: Mohammed Issah Bataglia, NDC, and Kingsley Kanton, PNC.
In an interview with the NPP Parliamentary candidate who is also a Chairperson for the team, Issahaku Amidu Chinnia while touting successes choked by the government has said their campaign would focus on selling out their 2020 message and pointing out achievements made under the NPP government in four years as compared to the NDC government in eight years for the electorates to make their choice.
“Basically the focus of our campaign will be to point out to voters what we have done in the last three and half years and what we intend to do should they [electorates] renew our mandate for another four years as compared to John Dramani Mahama’s record as Vice President and President in the NDC 8 year tenure so that voters would decide between the NDC and NPP”, he said.
Also, while admitting roads in the area are terrible even under this regime, Issahaku Amidu Chinnia has expressed a belief that the deplorable state of the roads would improve in the next four years of the NPP government should the party be retained in power.
Meanwhile, a regional campaign team member, Madam Kende Mariama Salifu has expressed optimism that through vigorous campaign the party would wrestle 3 more seats from the NDC while sustaining the 5 seats the party won in the 2016 general elections in the Upper West region.
