The MP for Tolon, said in a meeting in his constituency on 25th December, that he has heard calls from a section of people regarding who they support in our party flagbearer contest.
The Deputy Majoriy Chief Whip, added that, “Today they are fortunate that Dr. Bawumia is a Northerner, a Muslim and one of them who has distinguished himself and so if they deny him the opportunity to lead the party someday others will also deny their children who hail from the north from leading the party”.
Alhaji Habib Iddrisu said, “that they should ensure that Dr. Bawumia wins as flagbearer so that one day they will also boast that a Northerner also occupied the seat as president of this country”.
The MP later on went to say that, “how the NPP ( Northern People’s Party) was formed in Tolon at the residence of the late chief of Tolon (Tolon Naa Yakubu).
Furthermore, he reiterated that, “the late chief of Tolon also was a running mate to the late Victor Owusu even though he was the chairman and later became the flagbearer of the party but later also two months to the election gave in to the late Victor Owusu to lead the Party again”.By: Alhaji Habib Iddrisu
