In a bid to secure victory in the upcoming 2024 general elections, Alhaji Iddrisu Sulemana, affectionately known as “Professor Kalamonia,” and the Savannah Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has called for unity among parliamentary candidates and their supporters.
The Chairman’s plea came during an address to NPP parliamentary candidates from the Daboya-Mankarigu and Salaga North constituencies on Friday, 5th January, 2024, as they underwent vetting ahead of the party’s Parliamentary primaries scheduled for January 27, 2024.
Chairman Kalamonia emphasized the importance of unity among party members, reminding the aspirants that only one candidate would emerge victorious in each constituency.
He cautioned them about the impact of their campaign language, urging prudence as their words and actions could shape the party’s future.
The Savannah Regional NPP Chairman stressed that a momentary joy derived from campaign strategies might result in long-term bitterness for both individuals and the party.
Drawing attention to the 2020 election results, Alhaji Iddrisu Sulemana highlighted the NPP’s success in securing parliamentary seats in Damongo and Salaga North but losing in the presidential race.
He underscored the need for concerted efforts, stating that achieving unity within the party is crucial to consolidating gains in 2024.
He specifically appealed to the aspirants to conduct clean campaigns, fostering unity within the party to propel Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia to the Flagstaff House.
In a parting message, Chairman Kalamonia invoked a powerful analogy, stating, “A divided majority will only be crushed by a united minority,” emphasizing the necessity of cohesion within the NPP in the Savannah Region.
The NPP regional Chairman urged reflection on the 2020 general election results, acknowledging gains made in the Daboya-Mankarigu constituency while stressing the imperative for a united front in the pursuit of electoral success in 2024.
Five candidates from three distinct constituencies in the savannah region have submitted their nominations for the party’s upcoming parliamentary primaries.
Four of them, including Samuel Yenyu Tika and Hon. Asei Mahama Seini, for the Daboya – Mankarigu constituency and the remaining contenders, Fuseini Tahiru and Hon. Abdallah Iddi, for the Salaga North constituency underwent vetting.
Meanwhile, Hon. Lawyer Samuel Abdulai Jinapor from the Damongo constituency is running uncontested for the second time.
