Politics Is Not About Amassing Wealth

Mr James Zuuga Tiigah,Upper East Minister (6)The Upper East Regional Minister, James Tugah Zuugah, has stated that politics was not about the number of houses and cars one acquires or the crave to amass wealth.

Rather, it was about how the services of politicians impact positively on the living standards of the masses that repose their confidence in them.

He made the comments during the Upper East Regional Delegates Conference of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) last Friday.

The Regional Minister underscored the importance that numbers were extremely important in elections and therefore unity was paramount at all levels.

He appealed to the delegates to continue with the spirit of unity that has brought the party far, in the region.

“Even after the elections, I crave on the winners and losers to resolve to remain united and face the daunting task that awaits us in 2016”.

According to him, opponents of the NDC have tried to make it impossible for President John Dramani Mahama to rule this country by their diabolical political antics but government has remained resolute.

He therefore, called on party faithful to remain resolute and explain government policies and programmes to the doubting “Thomases” who claimed that everything was bad.

Mr. Dominic Azimbe Azumah, Member of Parliament for Garu congratulated the newly elected executive and assured them of his full support to win the 2016 general elections.

On development projects, he gave the assurance that all the 50 communities earmarked for electricity would be hooked to the national grid before the end of 2016.

Plans, he said were also underway to reconstruct the Bolgatanga-Bawku trunk road by the end of 2016.

President John Dramani Mahama’s special message to the congress was delivered by Dr. Clement Apak whilst solidarity messages were given by the New Patriotic Party, Convention Peoples Party and the People’s National Convention.
