Isaac Ayemvoa, the Bolgatanga Constituency Secretary for the NDC, is confident that the NDC in the Bolgatanga East Constituency, led by Dr. Dominic Ayine, will retain the seat come the 2024 election.
Speaking on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show today, Mr. Ayemovoa explained that voters in the Bolgatanga East Constituency would not be swayed by the excessive show of money by the NPP PC, Mathew Silas Amoah.
Mr. Ayemvoa explained that, as was the case for the then NPP PC for the Bongo Constituency, Peter Ayinbisa Ayamga, ahead of the 2020 general election, the NPP PC for Bolga would be floored heavily by the NDC MP, Dr. Ayine.
“You have your people who are at home, slept with hunger for so many years, somebody has come with his little funds, is not rich but has sacrificed. He has nurtured them to a particular level and you have come, with funding from somewhere, which may be short lived, hoodwink them into voting for you so that you can go there and recoup whatever you think you have spent. It is a kind of business. That is exactly what is happening. The people know this. When I ask them, they tell me not to worry.”
“Look at what was happening prior to the 2020 elections in Bongo. The whole heavens came down to say that Bongo was a done deal for the NPP. We told them not to do the things they were doing. They virtually said in Bongo that it was a done deal for Ayinbisa. I told them that the people didn’t have sand in their heads,” he said.
But in sharp response to the above, the Deputy Upper East Regional Communication Director, Andrew Atariwini, speaking on the same platform, stated that, but for the presence and kindness of Mathew Silas Amoah, the MP, Dr. Dominic Ayine, would have continued with his nonchalant attitude towards leading the people of the area.
“It took somebody like Mathew Amoah to come onboard to trigger people to realise that as MPs, they had responsibility to the people. He didn’t realise he had a responsibility to the people. The development they are talking about only happened under this government. In 2012, they should point out to us which developments happened. What I am saying is that the development is for the government. This government, being a government that understands that development is for all, realised that the people of the Bolgatanga East area needed development.”
Mr. Atariwini explained that all the boreholes sunk by the MP could be attributed to the forward thinkingness of the government.
