President Mahama tells Mamprusis to ignore rumour and panic mongers

 

Walewale, Nov. 1, GNA - President John Dramani Mahama on Thursday called on the people of Mamprugu to ignore rumours, fear and panic that was making the rounds in Mamprugu area that a victory for him in the December polls would create conflict between Gonjas and Mamprusis.

   “The National Democratic Congress's political tradition is a nationally accepted one and we will not discriminate against any ethnic group, individuals or group of professionals, and I will like to appeal to all of you to disregard the rumour with the contempt it deserves,” he said.

   President Mahama who was addressing chiefs and people of Walewale in the Northern Region as part of his five-day campaign tour of the Region, wondered why such allegations should be leveled against him at a time he was fighting for national unity, peace and development.

   The President would also visit Gambaga, Nalerigu, Bunkpurugu, Nakpanduri and Yunyoo, where he will meet the party hierarchy and address mini-rallies and interact with the people.

   He urged the people from the northern sector of the country to channel their energies towards the elimination of poverty, ignorance and disease, rather than pay attention to negative tendencies that had the potential to undermine the unity of the country.

   “As a politician, I do not see people as Frafras, Mamprusis, Gonjas and Kasenas, but I see them as Ghanaians who need to fight hunger, poverty and illiteracy that have retarded our development programmes over the years.”

   President Mahama pledged to take up measures that would stem the perennial drift of girls from Mamprugu to the urban areas for menial and sometimes non-existent jobs.

   “My worry as President of this country is not to superintend over conflicts and confusion, but to create opportunities for every Ghanaian to harness his or her potential to contribute meaningfully towards the growth and development of this country.”

   He announced that 50 tractor service centres would be established in the Savannah Accelerated Development Authority zone to provide tractors, combined harvesters and other necessary implements and equipment for farmers to maximize their production.

   Wungu Naba, Alhaji Sulemana Saaka, commended government for providing the area with numerous development projects in the last four years.

   He appealed to government to provide the area with a Nursing Training College as an antidote to the refusal of Nurses to accept postings to health facilities in Mamprugu.
