The NPP Parliamentary Candidate for Shama, Lawyer Samuel Erickson Abakah has called on all party members in the constituency to rally together in unity for victory 2020.
Mr. Abakah made the call when he toured about 32 electoral areas in the constituency to interact with his constituents as part of his thank-you tour to show appreciation to delegates after winning the primaries.
Mr. Abakah discouraged rumours which suggest that some party supporters have threatened to vote skirt and blouse simply because their preferred candidate failed to win.
“Party politics is about competition, a competition which you can either lose or win, I have tried 3 unsuccessful times since 2008 but won this year” he stressed.
According to him, he joined in all the campaigns even when he lost, to campaign massively for the incumbent then adding, that his supporters could have also decided to tow that line.
He advised supporters of the party in the consistency to be reminded of his humility, patience, sacrifices, and how dedicated he has been all these years serving the party, and support him to secure victory for himself and the president.
“Voting skirt and blouse is not a good decision and will not help the party and the constituency if you vote for Nana Addo and he becomes the president and i lose to an opposition member, the president may have minority MPs in Parliament should other constituencies whose preferred candidate lost, follow the same trend”, he emphasized.
Additionally, opposition MPs will sabotage the developmental agenda of the President because they do not support that agenda, which will come back to hunt the constituency.
This statement was collaborated by former member of the Presidential and Parliamentary Press Corps, Evangelist Raymond Kwofie.
He called on supporters to work hard to appreciate the vote difference of 5,000, between the NPP, and NDC attained in the previous election.
The NPP Parliamentary candidate as part of his thank-you tour toured registration centres to call on them to strictly adhere to the COVID-19 protocols laid down by the government to fight the novel coronavirus. He observed adherence to safety protocols is one way of fighting the spread of the disease.
Mr. Abakah who used the opportunity to distribute sanitizers to the electorate from one polling station to the other, was flanked by the constituency chairman, treasurer, women organizer, and other party executives and some assembly members.
