A vote for NDC is a disaster - Tafo Zongo Chief tells Samira

The Chief of Old Tafo Zongo, Alhaji Yussif Chibsah, has touted the approach by the NPP towards the development of Zongo as unique and unprecedented.

Alhaji Chibsah says the NPP and Nana Akufo Addo present a new strategy that will his help bridge the development gap in the Zongo communities across the country.

Touching on the proposed Zongo Development Fund as well as the Constituency Development Fund, the Chief urged Ghanaians to consider the pragmatic policies and programmes of the NPP and make an informed decision.

He described the policies as highly innovative and a paradigm shift from the usual piecemeal approach to development.

The Chief pointed out that considering these and other laudable policies contained in the manifesto of the NPP; it will be unfair not to give them an opportunity to govern this country.

According to him, a vote for the NDC will be a disaster for Ghana and its people.

Alhaji Chibsah made the statement when the wife of the NPP running mate, Mrs. Samira Bawumia, together with the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the party, Mr.Bernard Antwi Boasiako, paid a courtesy call on him at his palace in Tafo.

On her part, Mrs. Samira Bawumia debunked the assertion that the NPP is anti-northern/Muslim, stressing that the NPP is the only party with a deliberate convention and plans for Muslims and northerners.

She observed that it is highly absurd for the NDC and their cronies to engage in wicked propaganda that Nana Akufo Addo will chase Muslims and northerners away from the country.

"For the first time in the history of this country, we had both the Qur'an and the Bible at the Presidency thanks to the NPP. Thankfully we shall be seeing another of that in 2017 so why would the NDC continue to throw dust into the eyes of the good people of Ghana," she questioned.

Mrs. Samira Bawumia also assured the Zongo Chief that the NPP would remain true to its promise to revamp the Zongo and northern communities.
