A leading member of the NPP has appealed to traditional and religious leaders from the north resident in the southern parts of the country, to prevail on their rich and influential subjects to desist from funding conflicts in the north.
Mr George Ayisi Boateng, a founder member of the party, who made the appeal, said rumours that the numerous conflicts in the north were being funded by prominent and rich people of northern extraction resident in the south were unfortunate.
Addressing the chiefs and people from the three northern regions resident at Obuasi as part of his campaign activities on Sunday, Mr Ayisi Boateng urged them to advise their brothers and sisters in the north to ensure total peace, especially during the December elections.
Mr Ayisi Boateng, who is a member of the Ashanti Regional NPP campaign team, urged people in Zongo communities to change their attitudes and vote for the NPP to enable it continue with the development agenda of the government.
He said the introduction of a number of initiatives such as the national health insurance scheme, capitation grant, school feeding programme and total freedom being enjoyed by Ghanaians were ample demonstration of the NPP government's quest for total development of the country.
Mr Ayisi Boateng advised party activists in Zongo communities to work hard to change the election pattern in the Zongos in favour of NPP.
Mr Edward Ennin, MP for Obuasi, said the NPP government had done enough and there was the need for the people to give it another mandate to build upon the strong foundation laid by President Kufuor.
He appealed to the people in Zongo communities to rally behind the NPP to ensure total victory in December 2008 elections.
Mr Joseph Boampong, former Municipal Chief Executive for Obuasi, advised the youth to desist from acts that could create violence during the campaigning period.
He said the NPP government had kept faith with the people from the north and there was the need to reciprocate by voting massively for the party to continue with its good works.
