Minister for Local Government and MP for Nalerigu Gambaga, Hajia Alima Mahama has donated a Galloper cross country vehicle to the parliamentary candidate of Chereponi in the North East Region as part of efforts to win the “significant” Chereponi seat.
The donation according to the Minister was not for the personal use of the candidate, but to resource him ahead of the 2020 polls underscoring the significance of reclaiming the seat which is a traditional seat of the NPP.
According to her, the 2020 polls is an election of ideas noting that despite doing well under three years, the party structures need to be properly resourced to propagate the message of transformation to Ghanaians.
The vehicle was received by the Regional Executives of the party led by the Chairman and handed over to the candidate Tahiru Abdul-Razak who was tasked to use it for the intended purpose in pursuant of the overall agenda of the party.
Speaking after the donation, Regional Secretary Lawyer Sulley Sambian disclosed that the gesture by the Minister is a wake-up call to other appointees from the area to consider supporting the party to ensure that the agenda of snatching all seats is not a mirage.
He said the party is strategically positioning itself to make the North East Region a stronghold of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in appreciation of the numerous projects and pro-poor policies being embarked on by the current administration.
