Tempane: What’s Kpemka coming to do? Lydia Akanvariba beat him back to back – Jonathan Abdallah

“Joseph Dindiok Kpemka was one of the most influential people in the Akufo-Addo government before. He had everything to himself and could do a lot for the people. He was still beaten mercilessly by a first-timer. Someone who was not a branch executive. In fact, nobody knew her in the constituency. She only came once in a while to support her husband in politics. That was just all, but she was able to beat Kpemka back to back. I don’t know what Kpemka is coming to do again.”

Jonathan Abdallah Salifu, Upper East Regional Communication Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), made these comments in connection with the election of Joseph Dindiok Kpemka as the Parliamentary Candidate for Tempane in the Upper East Region. Mr. Kpemka goes against the NDC incumbent MP, Lydia Lamisi Akanvariba.

Speaking with Mark Smith on the Day Break Upper East Show, Mr. Abdallah Salifu explained that the re-election of Mr. Kpemka as PC for the NPP shows that nothing is expected to change in the 2020 general election.

Mr. Abdallah Salifu’s position was, however, strongly contested by the Regional Communication Director of the NPP, Peter Ayinbisa, who suggested that the re-election of Mr. Kpemka affords the people of the area the opportunity to compare the terms of both Mr. Kpemka and Ms. Akanvariba.

He spoke on the same platform with Mark Smith.

“It is a good judgment for the people of Tempane. They have had four years of Kpemka, and they have the four years of the current MP. The people can now compare and see who has helped them more. Who has developed their communities more? If you put both of them on the same scale, I can tell you that Kpemka has brought more development to the people than the current MP.”

“Consider the projects he has brought and the number of people he has helped to get jobs. If it comes to the major elections, it would be a comparison of what Alhaji Bashiru and Kpemka have done against what the MP has done,” he said.

It would be recalled that the NPP in the Upper East Region conducted primaries in 10 constituencies: Bolgatanga Central, Builsa South, Navrongo, Chiana-Paga, Bongo, Talensi, Nabdam, Zebila, Garu, and Tempane constituencies.

In three constituencies, namely Pusiga, Bolgatanga East, and Builsa North Constituencies, candidates went unopposed.

Elections are currently on hold in the Bawku Central Constituency.
