Nasara Coordinator Receives NDC Defector
5/24/2012 5:01:04 PM -
Alhaji Abubakar Suleman, National Coordinator of the Nasara Club of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has welcomed Alhaji Mohammed Osumanu, the Sekondi Constituency Vice Chairman of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), who recently announced his defection to the NPP.
Alhaji Sulemana, fondly known as Laku Laku, indicated that members of the club would assist people in the Zongo communities to better understand the NPP's ideology to help clinch victory for the party in the December 7 general elections.
He noted that the club's executives at the various levels were poised to work hard and make the necessary sacrifices to boost the party's votes in the country's Zongo communities in the next general elections.
Abubakar Suleman addressed a section of Muslims in the Sekondi constituency when he visited the area and paid a courtesy call on the Western Regional Chief Imam, Alhaji Ustaz Ali Alhassan in Sekondi last Sunday.
The NPP, he noted, shows real love to Muslims in the country.
He explained that the party demonstrated its love for Muslims during the 2000 general elections when ex-President John Kufuor appointed Alhaji Aliu Mahama, a Muslim, as his vice.
He contended that because the NPP was naturally committed to the cause of Muslims, the party appointed another Muslim in the person of Alhaji Bawumia as running mate of Nana Akufo Addo in the 2012 elections.
Laku-Laku emphasized that the NDC has never accorded Muslims such honour and urged them to realize the commitment of the NPP to their cause and return the party back to power.
The national Nasara coordinator also visited members of the club in the Effia-Kwesimintsim and Takoradi constituencies to interact with them.
In an exclusive interview with DAILY GUIDE he said the Zongo communities will vote massively for the NPP, irrespective of the party's campaign strategy.
'I have toured the whole of the country and come to the conclusion that the Zongo communities are now poised to vote the NDC out having realized that the NDC fooled them in the past,' he stressed.
According to Lakulaku, high-profile personalities as well as teeming youngsters in the Zongo communities are disappointed in the leadership of the NDC and the party because of the current economic hardship in the country.
He added the NDC played the Christian card by electing two Christians as presidential and vice presidential candidates and totally relegated the Islamic religion to the background.
'People in the Zongo communities have realized the NDC usually use them to vote for the party and dump them.
'Some high-profile Alhajis from the regions assert that even most of our youth who served as hardworking foot soldiers are jobless and the party has neglected them.'
