Amin Anta wins Tamale NDC souls -as Kangaroo fever engulfs Tamale

By The Statesman

In what seems like the manifestation of the mayor's good works in the development of Tamale, some die-hard supporters of the NDC in the Tamale Metropolis on Saturday joined an enthusiastic, massive crowd of NPP youth at a rally to support Adam Mohammed Amin Anta, the NPP parliamentary candidate for Tamale Central.

Many young NDC supporters joined NPP youth to dance the Kangaroo dance at the Aboabo market to celebrate their support of Mr. Anta. 

The NDC youth, speaking to The Statesman at the rally grounds, observed that the good works of the Tamale Mayor is patent for everybody in the city to see.

"We believe that when Mr. Anta is given the chance to become our MP he can do more for the people of Tamale,' one member said, promising to cast their vote for him 'no matter what.'

The NDC supporters indicated that the incumbent Tamale Central MP, Inusah Fuseini, has done nothing for the people of Tamale.

'What he does best is to go from one radio station to the other making outrageous arguments,' said one youth angrily. 'Is that what we sent him to Parliament for?'

The NDC youth admitted the developments that occurred since the NPP took over the affairs of the country is unprecedented compared to other governments.

'For once we see reason with the NPP and we are voting massively for Amin Anta and Nana Addo. We are voting for issues and for development and not chieftaincy,' he assured.

The NPP rally, the first ever constituency rally of the party, brought together a wide variety of citizens, including market women, businessmen, chiefs, opinion leaders, foot soldiers and founding fathers of the party. 

Also present at the rally were Northern Regional Minister Mustapha Ali Idris, Women and Children Minister Hajia Alima Mahama, presidential staffer Paul Afoko, DCE"s, NPP parliamentary aspirants, and party executives.

'This massive crowd demonstrates the readiness of the people of Tamale to vote for the NPP,' observed an elder gentleman at the rally.

Some of the people who spoke to this reporter said, 'We are voting for Anta because we believe in him, he has done a lot for the people of Tamale. So we are sending him to parliament to represent us.'

They expressed their delight in some of the unprecedented developments that took place in the metropolis when Anta Amin took over as the Tamale Mayor. 

An opinion leader of Tamale present at the rally told The Statesman that the city was lucky to have such a young, energetic politician to run the affairs of Tamale with so much success.

The opinion leader also revealed that the large crowd at the rally was an indication of the people's preparedness to vote for Amin Anta and the NPP.

'This also shows that Amin Anta has lived up to expectations as the Tamale Mayor, so the youth are happy for him.'

Speaking at the rally, Mohammed Adam Amin Anta called on the people of Tamale to vote for the NPP as a sign of appreciation for the good works of the Kufuor government in transforming Tamale into the business city of the West African sub-region.

He reminded the people of Tamale about the NPP government's ability to consistently execute and fulfil their promises.
