The Parliamentary Candidate (PC) for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for Bongo in the Upper East Region, Edward Abambire Bawa, has been touring the Constituency expressing appreciation to his constituents for the role they played in ensuring that, he was elected as their candidate for the November 7 general polls.
Mr. Bawa, who is the Communication Director of the Petroleum Ministry, was accompanied by the Constituency Chairman, Tahiru Aberinga, the District Chief Executive (DCE) of the Bongo District, Alexis Ayamdor, and some party executives.
Their visit last week to a number of electoral areas in the Bongo Constituency, afforded Mr. Bawa, the opportunity to thank the people endlessly for the peaceful nature in which the elections in the November 21, 2015, were conducted.
During his interaction, he reminded the constituents that, last year’s parliamentary primary by the governing NDC, was only the first phase, ahead of a bigger fight, which is the presidential and parliamentary elections.
Speaking at the various meetings, Mr. Bawa, a former National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) President, urged party members to unite to ensure that, the margin of votes for President John Dramani Mahama, was widened and that the party retains the seat.
He indicated that, the NDC government led by President Mahama, has laid the necessary foundation for the country’s prosperity.
He emphasized that, the numerous infrastructural development taking place across the country, was geared towards ensuring that, the right foundation was created for the best economic take off.
Mr. Bawa, therefore, urged party members to have patience with the government as it was on the right path of working hard to serve the people.
The DCE, Alexis Ayamba on his part, enumerated a number of projects being carried out by the government and assured the people that, the district would soon come out with its version of the Green Book, launched by the president this year.
The party chairman, Tahiru Aberinga, on his part, called for party unity, and asked members to solidly support the party’s candidate and the president to ensure total victory.
