The Gushegu Constituency 2020 Parliamentary Candidate of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the northern region, Lawyer Alhassan Sulemana Tampuli has promised to win 45,000 votes to retain the seat.
The seat is presently occupied by the NPP and he has pledged to retain it and secure four more years for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on 7 December.
The Chief Executive Officer for the National Petroleum Authority (NPP) said the policies and programmes introduced by President Akufo-Addo and the massive infrastructure provided in the Gushegu constituency in the first term of the NPP government has made the party very attractive to many voters in the area.
He has therefore urged supporters of the party to accommodate those from other party members who are joining NPP so that at the end of the 7 December polls the opposition NDC would not have a place to hide in the constituency.
According to the NPA CEO, the achievement of the NPP government will be massive in the next administration, asking the people to vote him and President Akufo-Addo to improve the socioeconomic conditions of the people and transform the economy.
Mr. Tampuli accused the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) of failing to bring the needed development to the people during their eight-year tenure.
Consequently, he challenged the largest opposition party to show their records in infrastructure projects in the constituency.
The Gushegu MP hopeful outlined some major interventions he has made since his acclamation as the 2020 parliamentary candidate of the governing party a few months ago in areas of education, health, water and sanitation and communication.
He also highlighted road rehabilitation works, construction of boreholes, electricity and school blocks and furniture among the key infrastructure projects he has done to influence the socioeconomic growth of the people.
Mr Tampuli assured the people of Gushegu during the launch of his manifesto from 2021 to 2024 last Sunday of massive development when elected as the MP on December.
He also expressed his commitment to continue all projects started by the current NPP MP for the area and Deputy Minister for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Dr Ziblim Iddi.
Lawyer Tampuli argued the NDC has no campaign for this year’s general election and alleged the aim of the largest opposition party is to foment mayhem, therefore, advising the electorates to vote against the NDC parliament candidate and the flagbearer John Dramani Dahamani.
