Young Patriots in the Sissalaland strongly believe that, their MPs in the Sissala East and West Constituencies, Honourable Ridwan Abass Dauda and his uncle, honourable Patrick Adama, have sabotaged the Deputy Upper West Regional Minister for long and has therefore charged them to eschew the sabotage.
According to the Young Patriots, the time has come for the two MPs to put their selfish and self-centered actions behind them and rally behind the Deputy Upper West Regional Minister and his boss, the Upper West Regional Minister, like how the other three NPP MPs are doing.
They should stop using his humility, patience and forgiving nature to always be spreading lies against him and slandering his image to top party and government hierarchy.
The Young Patriots have however, in a release signed by Abass Musah Tonduogo, Secretary to the Young Patriots in the Sissalaland and copied to Newsghana.com.gh, expressed their disappointment in the Sissala East and Sissala West MPs in their continuous and desperate attempt in undermining, frustrating and working against the Deputy Upper West Regional Minister, Honourable Amidu Chinnia Issahaku. The said MPs in the persons of Honourable Ridwan Abass Dauda and Honourable Patrick Adama have made it a habit to wrongfully accuse him and spread falsehood against him always.

SISSALA EAST AND SISSALA WEST MPs UNDERMINING AND WORKING AGAINST DEPUTY UPPER WEST REGIONAL MINISTER
We of the Young Patriots in the Sissalaland are deeply appalled and disappointed in the Sissala East and Sissala West MPs in their continuous and desperate attempt in undermining, frustrating and working against the Deputy Upper West Regional Minister, Honourable Amidu Chinnia Issahaku. The said MPs in the persons of Honourable Ridwan Abass Dauda and Honourable Patrick Adama have made it a habit to always spread falsehood and untruth against Honourable Chinnia Issahaku.
We are reliably informed that the two MPs with the support of the two DCEs in their respective districts have initiated steps to send false reports and fabricated untruths against Honourable Chinnia Issahaku to the top party and government hierarchy. They are falsely claiming that Honourable Chinnia Issahaku is fomenting trouble in their various districts/constituencies. This they spread without any truthful fact to back their assertion. They however refuse to add that they, together with their respective DCEs have never respected the office of the Deputy Upper West Regional Minister for reasons best known to them. They have made it a habit to always abuse the humble, respectful and forgiving nature of the Deputy Upper West Regional Minister. Some would wonder why MPs and DCEs from these two districts will hate these young Deputy Regional Minister that much and the answers aren’t farfetched.
From the word go, the two MPs who also double as an uncle and his nephew(Honourable Ridwan of the Sissala East is the son of the twin sister of Honourable Patrick Adama of Sissala West) have never supported the choice of Honourable Chinnia Issahaku as Upper West Deputy Regional Minister. They were pushing for different persons for that position and when that failed, Honourable Patrick Adama tried to push his nephew for that position but that could not also work out. Instead of accepting reality, their selfish and greedy natures wouldn’t allow them.
Essentially, when the president in his own wisdom appointed Honourable Chinnia for that position, the Sissala East MP and his DCE, Karim Nanyua refused to attend the vetting when it was the turn of Chinnia Issahaku. Most of our constituents couldn’t understand why the MP and the DCE will refuse when even people in other political parties and our our former MP, Honourable Moses Dani Baah of PNC attended. This tells you the level of dislike and hatred the Sissala East MP have for Honourable Chinnia Issahaku.
Surprisingly, had it not been for Honourable Chinnia Issahaku, none of these persons would have had the current positions they are enjoying. Let us take the MP of Sissala West for example. Honourable Patrick Adama came as a totally unknown person to contest the NPP parliamentary primaries in 2007. This, he lost woefully to honourable George Hikah Benson who was then the Upper West Regional Minister. Hikah Benson unfortunately couldn’t win the seat as he lost it to the PNC’s Honourable Haruna Bayariga.
Patrick Adama was then fully supported by Chinnia Issahaku and with the support of the current NPP chairman, Bukari Dramani, they mobilised support for him, coached him on local politics and marketed him to the party delegates. The love and credibility of Chinnia Issahaku and Chairman Bukari Dramani ensured that the unknown Patrick Adama won the parliamentary primaries of the NPP in 2010. He like Hikah Benson couldn’t win the seat for the NPP in 2012 but the fortunes of the party increased significantly.
Then came the 2016 elections and these same persons together with Honourable Naliwie, the former DCE for the Sissala West, did everything humanly possible to ensure that Honourable Patrick Adama wins the seat for the NPP. So, if anything at all, we would have thought that Honourable Patrick Adama will be grateful and thankful to these persons but unfortunately, his greedy, selfish and self-centered nature has made him to be spreading lies against all these persons and waging a very fruitless and unproductive war against all of them. He thinks lies and slander can force the president to sack honourable Chinnia Issahaku and make his nephew, honourable Ridwan Abass, the Deputy Upper West Regional Minister.
What about Honourable Ridwan Abass Dauda himself? It is a fact that honourable Ridwan defeated honourable Chinnia Issahaku in the 2014 NPP parliamentary primaries. Unlike others, honourable Chinnia kept everything behind him, mobilised support and campaigned strongly for honourable Ridwan Dauda. This ensured that honouable Ridwan won the seat against a very strong incumbent NDC MP and a resurgent PNC. Ridwan Abass Dauda has acknowledged the unique role honourable Chinnia played towards his victory in more than one platform. Why then must he start fighting Honourable Chinnia immediately he, Honourable Ridwan, failed to get the Deputy Upper West Regional Minister he and his uncle worked tiredly and fruitlessly to get? The simple answer is greed, envy, selfishness and their thinking that everything in the two Sissala constituencies/districts must belong to their family only.
A significant point we wish to bring to the attention of all is that the two MPs and their respective DCEs have abandoned the base of the party and the grassroots are crying. Honourable Chinnia coming from this area and visiting home regularly has been keeping in touch with the base of the party and this also seems to be hurting these personalities. They think that staunch party members who they have targeted and witch-hunted must be allowed to suffer. Chinnia Amidu’s rejection of the politics of vindictiveness and wickedness is one of his major and unpardonable crimes according to the gospel of Ridwan Abass Dauda, his uncle, Patrick Adama and the two DCEs of Sissala East and West Districts. How sad and unfortunate a situation!
We of the Young Patriots in the Sissalaland strongly believe that our MPs in the Sissala East and West Constituencies, Honourable Ridwan Abass Dauda and his uncle, honourable Patrick Adama, have sabotaged the Deputy Upper West Regional Minister for long and we think enough is enough. It is time they put their selfish and self-centered actions behind them and rally behind the Deputy Upper West Regional Minister and his boss, the Upper West Regional Minister, like how the other three NPP MPs are doing. They should stop using his humility, patience and forgiving nature to always be spreading lies against him and slandering his image to top party and government hierarchy.
