The Concerned citizens, Indigenes and NDC loyalist of Chiana-Paga constituency noted that they are unhappy about the conspicuous exclusion of Hon. Abuga Pele in the constitution of Mahama?s administration.

“if push comes to shovel, we the Concerned citizens, Indigenes and NDC loyalist of the Chiana/Paga constituency may be compelled to withdraw our support from the NDC,” they stressed.

According to them Abuga Pele is one of the few NDC parliamentary candidates who have been able to raise the flag of the NDC aloft for three consecutive terms as MP for Chiana-Paga and still counting!

“Hon. Abuga Pele also comes across as a man with tremendous experience and impeccable credentials to boot! If this, his fourth term as MP for China ?Paga goes its full throttle it will mean in effect that he has served his people and mother Ghana for sixteen epic years! Nothing could be more helpful to the fortunes of the NDC and mother Ghana.”

“It will be tantamount to stating the blatant obvious if we assert that in the 2012 December polls Hon. Abuga Pele chalked a landslide and overwhelming majority for the NDC ? both in the presidential and parliamentary results.”

The group also noted that in the aforementioned elections “his Excellency President John Dramani Mahama polled 25,815 votes, representing 77.02% while Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo polled 6,659 votes representing 19.87%. On the other hand Hon. Abuga Pele polled 21,562 votes, representing 63.50% as against Leo kaba?s 7,246 votes, representing 21.34%. These results are not only unarguably the highest and most emphatic in the Upper East Region but also ample testimony of Hon. Abuga Pele?s popular support and our love and dedication to the NDC.”

It is pertinent, they stated, that Hon. Abuga Pele demonstrated inimitable and unparalleled leadership during his stint as the national hockey Chairman. In fact he did a yeoman?s job by helping to revamp, rejuvenate, resuscitate and revivify this sport which was at its dying embers. He is therefore inextricable linked to the recent success stories of the Ghana hockey teams and the new wave of interest and enthusiasm the sport is generating.

“The high sense of neutrality he continues to exhibit as far as recruitment into the programme is concerned has affected the lives of ordinary Ghanaians across the country positively.”

“From the forgoing therefore it is unambiguously clear that Hon. Abuga Pele is imbued with the wherewithal needed to work in any of the ministerial portfolios as far as competence, loyalty and contribution to the electoral fortunes of the NDC are concerned….At this moment, it is significantly vital for us to aver that even though we do not question the right, prerogative and discretion of the president in choosing his cabinet and, we do not begrudge the inclusion of relatively new and young persons in his government; we are obliged under the circumstance to ask if there are any other criteria apart from competence, experience, loyalty and support in the selection of his ministers?”

The concerned citizens, indigenes and NDC loyalist therefore feel neglected, ignored and left out in the lurch notwithstanding the total devotion and loyalty to NDC since time immemorial.

“if push comes to shovel, we the Concerned citizens, Indigenes and NDC loyalist of the Chiana/Paga constituency may be compelled to withdraw our support from the NDC,” they stressed.
