Bawumia Joins Talensi By-Election Campaign

The 2016 vice presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has called on the people of the Talensi constituency to vote for the NPP candidate, Thomas Duanab Wuni, to enable him continue with the projects the former MP, Robert Mosoro Doameng, initiated.

According to him, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has a track record of abandoning projects initiated by persons from other political parties and should therefore not be given the opportunity to retard the development of the area.

He was addressing a gathering at Tongo on Tuesday when he joined the New Patriotic Party’s campaign in the Talensi constituency in the run-up to the forthcoming by-election.

Earlier, Dr. Bawumia paid a courtesy call on the paramount chief of the Tongo Traditional Area, Naab Kugbil Namalteng, at his palace in Tongo. He promised the chief a violence-free campaign in the area.

The paramount chief, once a Member of Parliament for the Talensi constituency on the ticket of the NPP, was happy about the visit and advised all political parties contesting for the seat to go about their campaigns in a peaceful manner, saying the people were watching and when the time comes they will make their choices.

He called on his sub-chiefs not to get themselves directly involved in any of the campaigns; rather advise their people to listen to the various messages and make their decisions on the election day.

Dr. Bawumia commended the paramount chief for contributing to the development of the area and urged him to use his position to attract more development support for the area.

The New Patriotic Party has been running a silent campaign since the seat was declared vacant, following the resignation of the incumbent NPP MP, who had been enskinned paramount chief.

The arrival of Dr. Bawumia on Tuesday rekindled the excitement and eagerness of members of the party and supporters to continue with the house-to-house and small group campaign.

He officially introduced the parliamentary candidate for the by-election, Thomas Duanab Wuni, to the paramount chief.
