Executives of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), in the Navrongo Central Constituency of the Upper East Region, have expressed high optimism of defeating the newly elected parliamentary candidate of the governing New Patriotic Party.

Led by its parliamentary candidate, the NDC, told the media that it is poised and battled ready to snatch the seat from the hands of the NPP in the upcoming December polls.

“Today’s outcome is an indication that the New Patriotic Party has lost the battle. It is not a rejection of an incumbent, but an outright rejection of the NPP.” Sampson Tangombu Chiragia, Navrongo central NDC Parliamentary candidate told the media.

For Mr Tangombu, the New Patriotic Party lost the 2020 general elections three years ago, due to failed promises and deceit.

“Ghanaians were deceived. The sugarcoated lies, the dishonesty were irresistible. Ghanaians have seen the difference. I am assuring you that come 2020, the National Democratic Congress will win convincingly. We have been ready for elections 2020 regardless of who the NPP selects as its parliamentary candidate”. He told the media as he beams with hope and smiles.

Mr Tangombu, stated that the NDC is the only party with the interest of Ghanaians at heart as he recounts what he referred to as the numerous developmental projects in the area of roads constructions, schools, health facilities, provision of water and electricity among others.

He is thus asking Ghanaians to vote out the NPP for John Dramani Mahama and the NDC to continue with the numerous developmental projects that has since been stalled with the coming into power of the Akufo-Addo led NPP government.

Delegates of the New Patriotic Party in the Navrongo central Constituency, last Saturday, elected Madam Tangoba Abayage as its 2020 parliamentary candidate in the party’s nationwide parliamentary primaries.

She pulled 313 votes beating her only and arch rival, Joseph Kofi Adda, the incumbent Member of Parliament for the area and current minister for Aviation who obtained 256 votes.

Referred to as the lioness, Madam Tangoba, prior to the electioneering campaign, was accused by her opponent of been a stranger in the Constituency and thus only visits the area to drink beer.

As the two ministers battle for the slot, all eyes were glued to the Tangoba-Kofi Adda contest. Campaigns started in earnest amidst accusation and counter accusations from the camps of both candidates.

Interestingly, Madam Tangoba in her victory speech, failed to recognize her opponent, making tongues wagging and rolling as many were spotted, asking if all is well with the NPP ahead of the 2020 polls.
