The Chief Executive Officer for the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), Lawyer Hassan Tampuli has been unanimously endorsed as the 2020 parliamentary candidate of the New Patriotic Party of the Gushegu constituency in the northern region.
This was after the incumbent Member of Parliament for the area and Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Dr Ziblim Iddi and one other contender withdrew from the parliamentary race held last Saturday, June 20.
This has paved the way for the NPA Boss to retain the seat for the governing NPP.
The National Steering Committee of the NPP acclaimed him as the sole candidate for the party which has been endorsed unanimously by constituency executives, electoral area coordinators, polling station executives and elders of the NPP in the constituency.
The NPA Chief Executive at a conference held in the area to outdoor him thanked the party for its decision for him to lead NPP into the December 7 polls.
He believes the success of the party depends on the participation of the youth and everyone in the next five months to the elections.
Mr. Tampuli has therefore charged the party sympathizers and executives to reinvigorate the spirit of patriotism and campaign vigorously to increase the presidential vote margin to two million votes for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and also widen the 4,000 votes difference between the outgoing NPP MP and the NDC candidate in the 2016 elections to over 10,000 votes.
He promised that the government will improve all major roads and other infrastructural facilities in the municipality to boost economic activities of the people.
Lawyer Tampuli hinted in the coming days a contractor will move to site to begin work connecting Zagul, Zinindo and other adjoining villages.
He also gave assurance that in four weeks’ time, work will commence at the Galwee clinic and further pledged to complete all projects initiated by the outgoing MP Dr Ziblim Iddi to transform the constituency.
“We are going to work hard to bring the needed development to the doorsteps of the people so that when they are voting on December 7, they know they are voting because of development” he stressed.
