The 'ghost' Mamprugu youth chiefs press conference; joke of the century

By Abdul Majeed Ali

Our attention has been drawn to a particular press conference on the
12th November, 2016 by some ghost Youth Chiefs in Mamprugu who
unanimously came out with unfounded lies against the ruling National
Democratic Congress and his Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama in
respect to the development of Mamprugu.

In fact I wept and bled internally when I goggled into Ghanaweb to update myself on the happenings in Ghana and the world at large when I came across this press statement"press conference by Mamprugu youth Chiefs" which was
full of lies with greatest impunity by these so-called'Mamprugu youth
chiefs who are not even recognized anywhere in the kingship of
Mamprugu.

It is undeniable fact that, the proper and the most widely
respected Youth Chiefs (Na-chinadima) in Mamprugu will not compromise
in anyway to do what the ghost Youth Chiefs did just to play the
tribal cards of soliciting support for the New Patriotic Party.

A lot has been achieved by the ruling National Democratic Congress and
his Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama in Mamprugu and we the good
people of Mamprugu are even more optimistic about the future of
Mamprugu in the second term of John Dramani Mahama as the president of
the republic of Ghana.

Mamprugu is already great and strong. And our strength and greatness
does not depend on Nana Addo and the New Patriotic Party. In fact it
doesn't depend on Dr Mahamudu Bawumia either but on the shoulders of
the overlord of Mamprugu Naa Mahami Abdulai Sheriga(Naa Buhagu)and his
Paramount chiefs across Mamprugu and with their blessings Mamprugu
have witnessed significant development under the abled leadership of
their son as the president of Ghana his Excellency Wumpini John
Dramani Mahama.

His Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama had always listen to the
overlord of Mamprugu and the good people of the land with respect. And
no matter how daunting the odds;he had always walk his talk in as much
as development of Mamprugu is concern.

His Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama is the competent president
of the country we all know. That's the president we the good people of
Mamprugu have come to admire. And that's why we can say with
confidence that there has never been a president in Ghana than John
Dramani Mahama who has the development of Mamprugu in heart.

The so-called Mamprugu youth chiefs are exposing their ignorance for
been ungrateful to National Democratic Congress and his Excellency
Wumpini John Dramani Mahama after all, we have achieved in Mamprugu by
the Mahama administration. Prosperity will judge them in denting the
image of the National Democratic Congress for their own selfish
interest.

After the worst performance of the New Patriotic Party eight long
years rule in Mamprugu,we have fought our way back with the competent
president Mahama's administration. We have seen a lot of development
in Mamprugu and we have got the scars to prove everything beyond
reasonable doubt.

After decades of converting Nalerigu teacher training college in
Mamprugu into secondary school by the vision less leadership of the
Danquah-Busia-Dombo tradition in the late 1970's,his Excellency
Wumpini John Dramani Mahama had declared that teacher education and
education as a whole isn't a privilege for few individuals in the
country, but a right for everybody and that really made his Excellency
Wumpini John Dramani Mahama to re-established Gambaga College of
Education and the construction of community day senior high schools
and when completed will supplement the existing senior high schools in
Mamprugu.

The government of the ruling National Democratic Congress
also upgraded the Nalerigu health assistance school to the status of
General nursing and midwifery training school and has equally improved
significantly the infrastructure of the school for teaching and
learning.

The road sector in Mamprugu is not also left untouched by the
president and the ruling National Democratic Congress. The government
has performed tremendously well in construction of the roads in
Mamprugu which is unprecedented in the history of Mamprugu.

The walewale-Nalerigu road is almost complete and works are ongoing on
the Walewale-Wungu road,Walewale-Yagaba road,Walewale-Zangum
road,Kparigu-Shelinvuya road, Walewale-Tampulingu road and many more
whiles the Nasia-Janga road, Guabuliga road and many other roads have
been awarded to contracts. These revelations goes to categorically say
that the press conference by the 'ghost' Mamprugu youth chiefs was
already dead at the point of release and that really exposed their
diabolical agenda towards election 2016 for their political godfather.

To be honest with my distinguished readership, in fact his Excellency
Wumpini John Dramani Mahama will forever be stenciled on the mental
sheets of every succeeding generation of Mamprugu as the best ever
president of Ghana who developed Mamprugu to the satisfaction of the
good people of Mamprugu.

The ruling National Democratic Congress and his Excellency Wumpini
John Dramani Mahama have hooked almost one hundred communities unto
the national grid and many more are awarded to contracts as compared
to the New Patriotic Party administration under former president
Kufour who could only hooked communities less than twenty in the whole
Mamprugu unto the national grid. It is only people who can't think
intellectually will say John Dramani Mahama and the NDC have not
developed Mamprugu upon all these visible scars across Mamprugu within
this administration.

His Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama and the ruling National
Democratic Congress have also fixed the acute water shortage of
Mamprugu.The good people of Kparigu, Nasia, Wungu and many more
communities across Mamprugu have been helped in one way or the other
in getting good drinking water. The Tinguri and Gbani water project
was also completed but could not be commissioned by his Excellency
Wumpini John Dramani Mahama as he did at Kparigu because the ongoing
construction of the Walewale-Nalerigu road which led to some breakages
on the pipes and will be replaced if the works on the road is
completed.

His Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama and the ruling National
Democratic Congress also did tremendously well in the health sector
across Mamprugu. A number of clinics, health centres, and chip
compounds have been established in Mamprugu which helps in providing
health service to the good people of Mamprugu.

It is on records that his Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama
government has constructed sixty(60) Chips compound, clinics and
health centres in Mamprugu and even upgraded some clinics to the
status of hospitals.


In all Bunkurugu district has twenty-two (22)chips compounds and
sixteen of them are functioning properly. In the home district of Dr
Mahamudu Bawumia west mamprusi can equally boast of sixteen chips
compounds, two clinics and the upgradement of Kpasinpke clinic to the
status of hospital all within the ruling National Democratic Congress
government. East mamprusi and Mamprugu Moaduri districts also have
their share of the chips compound with twelve (12) and ten (10) in
Mamprugu moaduri and east mamprusi district respectively.

With all these facts about the happenings in Mamprugu within his
Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama as the president of the country
is so far, the best ever in the history of Mamprugu and if anyone in
the New Patriotic Party fraternity disagree with all these, should
engage me personally on an intellectual debate but the most
unfortunate dishonesty the so called youth chiefs mentioned which even
discredit their press conference was that of the claimed diamond
cement factory established by the NPP which never existed anywhere in
Mamprugu but it could be that it was established on the railway line
constructed by the NPP administration from Accra to Paga which passes
through Mamprugu.

It is left unto the ghost youth chiefs to substantiate their claim on
the nonexistent diamond cement factory abandoned by the ruling
National Democratic Congress.

Time and again,
we the good people of Mamprugu have voted in our numbers for the
National Democratic Congress and that is exactly we did to his
Excellency Wumpini John Dramani as the leader of the NDC in 2012.And
this year, in this election, we are going to vote massively for his
Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama and all the parliamentary
candidates of the NDC across Mamprugu.

With this, join me to reject cynicism and the tribal politics of Dr
Mahamudu Bawumia and his cohorts. Let's summon what is best in us and
vote massively for his Excellency Wumpini John Dramani Mahama to
complete his constitutionally mandated eight years as president of
Ghana like Ghanaians did to former president Jerry John Rawlings and
John A. Kufour.

To be continued........
