Upper East Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party, Lawyer Anthony Namoo has stated that he has performed incredibly well in the Nabdam Constituency in his efforts to ensure there is unity in the party.
According to him, the successes he has chalked in the constituency are remarkable, adding that he does not want to talk a lot about his achievements in the area since that would amount to him blowing his own trumpet.
He was answering questions from Mark Smith Ahumah on A1 Radio’s Daybreak Upper East Show relative to allegations that the people from his hometown campaigned against him in the run-up to the party’s regional elections.
Lawyer Namoo, who beat his closest contender, Dr. Moses Kwabena Atinga by fifteen (15) votes indicated that though he appointed a sizeable number of people in the constituency, some still campaigned against him in the run-up to the elections.
He said there is no justification for people to dislike him given the support he has rendered to people in the constituency, adding that those who do not have soft spots for him are envious of his hard work.
He thus intimated that his good deeds to people prompted the trees, rocks as well as mountains to vote for him so as to continue his good work.
“What I have done for my constituency, you don’t want to blow your own trumpet. As far as the interest of the party is concerned, I have done well to bring everybody on board in my constituency but try as you do, there are some people who also have their own thing. There are tribal differences and so you could just clearly identify those who were anti-Lawyer Anthony. They are there and you can clearly define where their sentiments are coming from. My works are there for people to see but there is this kind of inherent jealousy.”
“Because even though you say Nabdam, there are still those divisions and some of them are historical and you cannot use politics to bring them together, but this is how beautiful politics is; you think that politics should bring all of us together, so let’s put aside the tribal sentiments. But for me, I don’t think there is any justifiable reason for people not to like me. That’s why the trees, the rocks, the mountains, all voted for me in my election,” he noted.
Lawyer Namoo further stated that his over fifteen years of service to the party coupled with his continuous presence in the region boded well with the majority of the party faithful hence culminating in his victory.
He concluded by imploring all party folks, including both winners and losers of the elections to be united in order that they could break the eight.
