Northern Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mohammed Baantima Samba, has made a cash donation of ¢720, 000 to party executives across the 18 constituencies in the region.
Each of the 18 constituencies is expected to receive a total amount of GHS40, 000 to enable them efficiently and effectively conduct party activities in their respective localities.
The personal support, according to the chairman, is to empower the party structures in the region towards breaking the eight-year governance electoral cycle in the country.
He made the presentation during the NPP’s regional delegates conference of the party at Nyankpala in the Tolon constituency on Tuesday, October 5 in the Northern Region.
In his welcome address, Chairman Samba said the spectacular performance of the NPP Regional Executives together with its constituency party executives and the various polling station executives enabled the party to recapture political power for President Akufo-Addo.
He, however, charged the supporters to unite towards breaking the eight in the 2024 general election.
“My brothers and Sisters, I will never give my constituency executives paper awards – I am going to award you with happiness. What we should do to prepare the grounds to break the eight years so that we can win the Sagnarigu constituency, Tamale North constituency, Savelugu constituency, Tamale Central, Kumbungu constituency and many others.”
He added that “I want to prepare your minds to go back home and know that your solid Regional Chairman is behind you. You have delivered and you’re the same people I will take to war to win the 2024 elections so that we can break the eight.”
