A former Upper East Regional Minister, Tangoba Abayage has refuted claims that the camp of late Kofi Adda won the majority of Navrongo Constituency Executive positions at the just-ended internal party constituency elections.
Speaking during a One on One interview at Dreamz FM, a local radio station in the regional capital Bolgatanga monitored by this portal, the former ambassador said out of the 10 elected Navrongo constituency executives in the just-ended internal party elections, 7 were from her camp.
“David Samari was with me, he was in our camp, Jacob Ncho is in our camp, David Anafo was with us, Ganiu was with us, Dan. B was with us, and Dennis was with us. How many were elected? 10, and out of the 10 elected, 7 were with us and these are all the people who were elected. 3 were elected who were not with us. Even the 3 who were elected, who were not with us, one of them eventually fell off, and am not going to mention names. So, two are hardcore of Kofi Adda's camp,” she stated.
Giving her response during the program, she admitted that is a difficult task to be responding to such debates because she believes they need to move on as a party.
“ Is very difficult for me to say this because I want us to move on for goodness sake. This whole Tangoba –Kofi Adda thing has hurt us. If we are wise, we drop it and forget that thing about somebody’s team won and somebody’s team lost, it is Navrongo that won.
"The fact that the chairman lost, look at the tsunami that went across the region from Bawku to Talensi to Bolga, people fainting and dying and all that. So, why should I be singled out?" she quizzes.
