I pledge to be decorous in my campaign – Minister

Upper East Regional Minister and former Ambassador to Italy, Hon. Tangoba Abayage has publicly pledged to carry out her campaign with decorum and without vexatious utterances against anyone.

The Former Ambassador to Italy has picked nominations forms to contest the upcoming parliamentary primaries of the governing New Patriotic Party(NPP) in the Navrongo Central Constituency of the Upper East Region.

In a Facebook Page post , Hon. Tangoba said “I am in the Campaign for Navrongo Central with a clear Purpose and Message. For now the message from my team and I is precise, concise and targeted at the almost 600 delegates”.

According to Tangoba,her Team has also been cautioned against the use of intemperate and foul language even if they are provoked in order to ensure that the NPP remains united ahead of the general elections in December.

“I HAVE PLEDGED, together with my team to be as decorous as required. We have PLEDGED not to use any intemperate or indecent language on any person”.We have PLEDGED to stick to our message and work with our target!” she assured.

She has also called on any interested party in the primaries to engage her Team with decorum and decency.

“I’m hoping people will engage us on same terms!” she stressed.

Until this public pledge, the incumbent Member of Parliament who is also serving as an Aviation Minister and seeking re-election, Hon.Joseph Kofi Adda in a radio interview on A1 Radio,made comments that were deemed ‘reckless’ and targeted at the personality of Hon. Tangoba Abayage which were condemned by a section of the public.

Hon. Adda accused his contender without facts of dashing ‘Mercedes Benz cars’ and Ghs15000 to some Journalists in the region to do her biding adding that, her role to the NPP in Navrongo was to drink beer without anything to support the NPP.

However, Hon. Tangoba has not responded to these vexations and disparaging comments,so it is unclear if this public pledge is an advice to hon. Kofi Adda to be descent in his campaign.

The Navrongo Central Constituency is the hottest seat most eyes are fixed and anxious to know the outcome in the parliamentary primaries slated for April 2020. So far, only Hon. Tangoba Abayage and Hon. Kofi Adda have picked nomination forms to contest.
