Bawumia Can’t Win Three Northern Regions


Mahamudu_BawumiaThe Upper East Regional Minister, Mark Woyongo has assured supporters of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) that Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the running mate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) cannot win the three northern regions from the party.

He insists Dr. Bawumia does not represent any threat to the ruling NDC in any of the three regions namely, Northern, Upper East, and Upper West Regions which constitute the north.
Though there have been suggestions that the electoral fortunes of the ruling NDC will be affected adversely because the NPP has maintained its 2000 running mate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia who hails from the north.
Mark Woyongo was speaking in Wa, the Upper West Regional capital when he came on a short visit.  Given the massive development projected dotted across the three northern regions, the NDC entertained no fears at all, he indicated.
The East Regional minister mentioned the extension of electricity to all nooks and cranny of the three northern regions, massive improvement of the supply of portable water, construction of road networks and the creation of the University for Development Studies as developments in the minds of the people of the three northern regions and argued that “The Northerner will never never forget these developments in his or her life time”.
Touching on his home region, Mr  Woyongo said since 2009 the Upper East Region alone has been given over three hundred projects covering all spheres of life. He mentioned the educational sector in the region as the single largest beneficiary of development projects and noted that the health sector has also been touched by such development projects.
Other areas he observed, include road infrastructure and said what the NDC has done within the last three years in the country no government can come anywhere near the performance of the current administration.
Mr Woyongo therefore declared that the three northern regions which represent 40 per cent of the country will continue to rally solidly behind the ruling NDC to take them to the Promised Land.
