NDC Teases NPP
1/8/2009 12:21:13 PM -
NPP supporters join in the celebration SCORES OF New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporters along the Techiman-Kumasi-Accra road were disappointed when they dashed to the roadside upon hearing Daddy Lumba's 'Nana Ye Winner' song being played to see if their leaders had some good news for them only to see a National Democratic Congress (NDC) campaign van playing the music.
The NPP supporters were astonished to see the NDC campaign van playing the NPP song used in the just ended December 2008 parliamentary and presidential elections, when it should be coming from their party's campaign van.
Nevertheless the NPP supporters joined their NDC opponents to dance to the song immediately the Chairman of the Electoral Commission, Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan declared the NDC presidential candidate, Prof. Evans Atta Mills winner of the presidential run-off and President-elect 0f the Republic of Ghana.
The campaign van of John Dramani Mahama was part of the convoy that stormed the Tain constituency which decided to play some mischief with the song.
On the convoy's return from the Brong Ahafo region last Saturday, from Techiman through Kumasi to Accra, few NDC supporters were seen jubilating ahead of the official announcement by the EC.
Immediately the EC Chairman announced that Prof. Atta Mills was the winner of the presidential run-off, NDC supporters along those roads quickly went wild with jubilation in the company of scores of NPP supporters joining in the euphoria.
But when the van started playing 'Nana, Nana Ye Winner', the NPP supporters got charged and motivated to join in the celebration.
Initially reports reached the convoy that the Ashanti Regional capital, Kumasi, had become a no-go-area for the NDC and that if the convoy drove through the metropolis it was likely to be attacked.
The NDC team however ignored the warning and stormed Kumasi only to be welcomed by enthusiastic supporters and some NPP supporters who were in their party T'shirts.
Trotro, taxi and other drivers were not left out of the euphoria as they were seen tooting their horns and flashing their headlights.
DAILY GUIDE gathered that Daddy Lumba's song rather became a hit and the most sought after song, especially after the election, in all the regions as the song continues to enjoy airplay from all corners.
