Southern Sector Coordinator for pro National Democratic Congress youth
group Agenda For Mahama, AFM Nelson Gbadagba has said that, propaganda
being paraded by members of the New Patriotic Party that, projects as
captured in the Green Book that seek to showcase achievements of
government have been Photoshoped are statements that are unpalatable
According to him, politicians who seek power from the people must
begin to learn to speak the truth.
Revealing this to the media recently in North Day community of Botoku,
Nelson Mawuli Gbadagba says the attitude of members of main opposition
New Patriotic Party leaves much to be desired. He said this during a
house to house campaign done by the group in that community.
The National Democratic Congress member says, the National Democratic
Congress led by His Excellency John Dramani Mahama has done enough and
that, all projects as captured in the Green Book are real and are also
manifestation of the fact that, the ideologies on which the National
Democratic Congress party was built is being displayed.
According to him, in the North Dayi District alone, a lot of work has
been done for the people through the North Dayi District Assembly and
went ahead to commend the District Chief Executive for the area Mr
Stephen Timinka for his good leadership style.
Over one hundred (100) members of the New Patriotic Party have
defected to join the National Democratic Congress in the North Dayi
Constituency following actions by the group, explaining policies and
programmes to them. Mr Mawuli Gbadagba says he was surprised that,
people continue to believe lies being told to the public by leaders of
the NPP. He was happy to say that, the people who have defected from
the New Patriotic Party to join his party the NDC would be taken
through some more education so they become ambassadors of the NDC in
their various communities.
To prove to members of Agenda For Mahama that they were committed to
the decision they took to join the NDC, the defected members of the
NPP took the NDC party T Shirts, wore them and started Open campaign
for President John Dramani Mahama. Mr Nelson Gbadagba added.
Meanwhile, the North Dayi District Assembly earlier this year,
inaugurated six projects at a total cost of GH¢544,004.49 for the
education sector aimed at stimulating better performance among
teachers, pupils and students.
The projects are the construction of an Information and Communications
Technology (ICT) centre, a kindergarten block and the rehabilitation
