One of the stalwarts of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Wa Central Constituency, Alhaji Nurideen Ahmed Froko, has given a boost to the campaign of the constituency as he made a donation of various items to the parliamentary candidate, Hajia Humu Awudu, through the Regional Executive Committee.
Alhaji Alanky, as he is affectionately called, was one of the four contenders for the parliamentary candidature who lost to Hajia Humu Awudu in the NPP primaries ahead of the 2020 elections coming third with 206 votes, 96 short of Hajia Humu Awudu’s votes.
The items included a pickup vehicle branded with pictures of Hajia Humu Awudu and Nana Akufo-Addo, a brand-new motorbike and 400 pieces of branded t-shirts.
Donating the items on behalf of Alhaji Alanky, campaign chairman during the NPP primaries, Alhaji Mahama Jengbeyiri said the move was to show that rescuing the Wa Central seat was a shared responsibility for all. He reiterated that Alhaji Alanky is wholeheartedly supporting Hajia Humu’s bid to win the seat for the NPP and to put smiles on the faces of constituents.
“God cannot give one thing to two people. The fact that Hajia Humu won the parliamentary candidature doesn’t mean the rest of us who were not lucky should sit back. It is on this backdrop that Alhaji Alanky decided to bring these items to support the campaign of Hajia Humu”, Alhaji Mahama stated, adding that Team Alanky are not going to sit at home because they have donated items for the campaign. “Some of us are inside campaigning while others are also out. We will be part of the door to door campaign and every other activity that will ensure the victory of Hajia Humu Awudu and the NPP come December 7.”
The campaign chairman for Team Alanky further indicated the significance of the donated items to the campaign, saying that “some people refuse to work or even leave political parties because of party t-shirt. So this will help a lot in stopping petty squabbles among party supporters. The motorbike and the vehicle will help in accessing far-to-reach communities to sell the good message of the Hajia Humu and the NPP”.
The items were received by the regional organizer of the NPP, Alhaji Mustapha Goveir who pledged to ensure that they are put to judicious use to ensure the victory of the NPP in Wa Central and Ghana at large.
