Zongo Communities urged to shun NDC propaganda

Array

npp_logo1.jpgMr George Frimpong, Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Asante
Akim-North, has urged Zongo communities to reject smear political
campaigns, being pursued by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to
discredit the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.

He
said the NDC’s efforts at sowing seeds of antagonism between the Zongo
communities and the NPP government over the years had been fruitless,
as government continued to develop the communities.

Mr
Frimpong, who was speaking at the inaugural ceremony of the Asante
Akim-North Nasara Club at Konongo during the weekend, entreated Zongo
communities to vehemently resist NDC’s peddling of falsehood.

According
to him the NDC was brainwashing the people in order to win votes and
urged them to shun such propaganda, aimed at returning the NDC to power.

The
MCE observed that the NPP government was not discriminatory and would
continue to equitably spread development projects across the country,
stressing that, Zongo communities would not be left out.

He
implored the leadership of the club, to embark on campaigns devoid of
insults and violence, saying, the NPP believed in the rule of law.

Nana
Adu Asabre, NPP Constituency Chairman, urged the leadership of the club
not to lord it over its members but provide efficient leadership
required to win votes for the party.

He said the task ahead was
enormous and required hard work, dedication and commitment to clinch a
third successive victory, adding that the club’s role would be crucial.

Mr
Francis Bright Appiadu, Constituency Organizer called for unity in the
party, after a scathing primary resulted in division among members of
the party.

He said it was about time the various factions in
the party united for a common purpose and urged the members not to
tolerate a breakaway independent candidate, Mr Alexander Osei-Tutu,
whom he said was not a true member of the party.
