It appears the ruling NDC is losing touch with the Bongo Constituency in the upper East Region of Ghana and can no longer ‘brag’ of securing the seat in the upcoming elections, especially the parliament slot.

It is barely 45 days to the presidential and parliamentary elections in the country and the NPP’s message of change seems to have been absorbed by the electorates in that constituency .

Enthused residents of Feo a border community in Bongo poured out in their unusual numbers to witness the commissioning  of a party office in that electoral area amidst songs of ‘change’ which was donated by a party member, Alhassan Sumaila.

Feo and it surrounding communities have majority of the voting population in the Bongo Constituency and it is the main decider of elections.

Addressing the mammoth party members, Constituency Chairman,  Hon. Peter Ayinbisa called on the electorates to reject the “wicked” NDC government which has improvished Ghanaians citing the 2016-2017 academic year’s admission fees into various secondary schools and described it as exorbitant and unbearable.

He said it was high time the people of Feo for that matter Bongo, rejected the NDC’s parliamentary candidate, Edward Bawa and John Mahama because they are not capable.

Hon.Ayinbisa also accused Edward Bawa of blatantly lying to the people of that area at a recently held rally that the NDC government has built the schools in that zone. According to him, the NDC has done nothing in the area and it was the NPP which developed the area.

“We have built all the schools in this community ,they have not built a single school here,all they do is to rehabilitate and maintain…but we are the ones who came and opened all the schools in this community… So the people are Soo much aware that change is happening and they are prepared to listen to us because we have good programs and policies for them” he said

He added that Edward Bawa has insulted the people of Bongo when he told electorates in Feo and its environs that he was from a rich family and since childhood fed on rich ‘sardine’ whiles the remaining were thrown away when he was referring to the NPP as a surplus party.

“I am told Edward Bawa was here to portray himself as a rich person …am told he said his mother was a rich person and people used to come their house …they used to eat sardine and the leftovers were meant for people like us .and these are the people who want us to vote for them …I don’t need to tell you this is an insult,ordinarily, he has insulted all of us and we are not going to sit down and allow a few miscreants to come and steal our votes and enrich themselves” he stated

Mr.Ayinbisa said that this is an indication that NDC does not respect the ‘poor’ class in the constituency and for that matter must be voted out.

“he is trying to say that he is coming from a rich and wealthy family and for that matter he has the money to buy the conscience of the people so that we can vote for him and his family  to continue to be rich.we are assuring him that the community members who are poor just like myself we are going to vote for someone who is God fearing …we are going to vote for Agana and Nana Addo” he stressed

The 2012 parliamentary candidate of the NPP, Diana Abuureya also urged party faithful to continue to rally behind the NPP in order to see the change they are yearning for  in the Constituency.

In his address to the people of Feo, Hon. Gabriel Ade Agana,the Parliamentary candidate for the NPP said he was very grateful to the love the electorates have shown the party and admonished them to continue to work in unism in order for the party to win both parliamentary and presidential elections.

He however added that he would make sure that the challenges of road network, electricity,water and health are addressed accordingly.

Also at the commissioning of the zonal party office were the Regional NPP Chairman, Secretary,Communications Officer,past DCEs and party elders.

Meanwhile, the people in the Feo,Namoo,Boko and other surrounding communities have sent signals that if their bridges,water and electricity problems are not solved,they would either not vote or would vote against the NDC.

Bongo has been a safe seat for the NDC until recently that the incumbent MP, Albert Abongo stepped down. The NDC  has still not fully assembled it’s pieces of division during the parliamentary primaries when most party members  vowed to vote ‘skirt and blouse’  as a result of the circumstances surrounding the conduct and outcome of the primaries elections.
