Mrs Georgina Ayamba, the Upper East Regional Women’s Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has congratulated all elected candidates in the Party’s Parliamentary Primaries held on Saturday.
She extended felicitations to Madam Tangoba Abayage, the Navrongo Central Parliamentary candidate elect, Mr Frank Fuseini Adongo and Mr Joseph Dindiok Kpemka, who are both incumbent Members of Parliament (MPs) for the Zebilla and Tempane constituencies respectively, and were re-elected.
In a congratulatory statement copied to the Ghana News Agency in Bolgatanga on behalf of the Women’s Wing of the Party, Mrs Ayamba also congratulated all executives, delegates and aspirants for the peaceful and successful manner in which the internal contests were conducted.
“For the first time in the history of our Party in the Navrongo Constituency, an industrious and trailblazing colleague woman, Tangoba Abayage, a replica of the late Hajia Hawa Yakubu, is poised to retain the Navrongo Central seat for the NPP.”
The Women’s Organiser said Madam Abayage, who is also the Upper East Regional Minister, was the first female Regional Minister to win the Navrongo Central Constituency primaries to represent the Party.
Mrs Ayamba encouraged all women within and outside the Party to rally round their colleague and expressed confidence that Madam Abayage would retain the seat for the NPP in the December general elections.
“Tangoba Abayage has the unflinching support of all constituency women organizers and the women’s wing of the Party like any other Parliamentary candidate, in our pursuit of victory come 2020 general elections,” she said.
Mrs Ayamba said, “There were no losers or winners in our primaries, the NPP family won and shall work hard with the support of all to retain our three seats and increase our Parliamentary seats in the region.”
She appealed to the elected Parliamentary candidates to reach out to their contenders who lost the election, to resolve their differences and build unity of purpose for victory in the upcoming Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
“Those who were unsuccessful should not be disheartened but rather support their Parliamentary candidates to win their respective seats. I urge all party members and sympathizers to rally behind their respective Parliamentary candidates to retain power in 2020 and increase astronomically our Parliamentary seats.
“The unprecedented development witnessed in Ghana under the Nana Addo-Bawumia led government continues to make the NPP the best choice of the Ghanaian people for progress and prosperity.”
Mrs Ayamba called on all NPP sympathisers to work hard and forge ahead in unity to retain power in their quest to make Ghana a better country for all.
