CPP optimistic of winning Tamale Central bye-election
Posted: Mar 29 2006
Northern Regional Chairman of the Convention People's Party (CPP) Albert Atutiga, says the Party would win the Tamale Central Parliamentary seat in the bye-elections lasted for April 4.
"Let's fight hard to shock Ghanaians who think that the NPP and the NDC are the only two dominant parties in the country by winning the Tamale Central Constituency seat convincingly, come April 4"
Mr Atutiga was addressing CPP members at a rally in Tamale.
It was organized to introduce the CPP candidate, Mr. Alhassan Basharu Dabali, a 41-year-old electrician.
The rally also sought the support of the electorate to enable the Party to win the by-election.
Mr. Atutiga said: "Members of the NDC in Tamale Central are only crowd pullers while Prof. Wayo Seini and the other two candidates are making up the numbers."
He said Prof. Wayo Seini had betrayed and disappointed the NPP, NDC and the people of Tamale Central and that he was now out to "deceive" the electorate.
On the NDC, Mr. Atutiga said: "Their days are over; they cannot win elections in Ghana again. Only the CPP would win the Tamale Central seat in preparation towards the 2008 general election".
He cited the current mass resignations of members from the NDC as a sign of the Party's doom in Ghana politics.
To the NPP, Mr. Atutiga said: "Since they fear defeat in Tamale Central, they have not fielded any candidate".
Mr. Dabali noted that all members of the NDC had their roots from the CPP and solicited the support of all floating voters to throw their weight behind him to win the seat.
He advised the electorate to be wary of those who would desert them in midstream and come back to promise them heaven on earth saying: "I will never disappoint you".
