The New Patriotic Party (NPP) at the Manhyia South Constituency on Tuesday proved that indeed their party is poised for political victory in 2016 as they poured out in the streets in colossal numbers.
Decorated in the red, white and blue colours of the largest opposition political party, the NPP supporters flooded the streets at Ash Town causing massive vehicular traffic in the area.
Made up of men, women and the youth, the elated-looking NPP supporters were seen singing victorious songs, dancing to brass band music with intermittent shouts of “victory, victory, victory.”
The jamboree happened when Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, known in political circles as ‘Napo,’ MP for Manhyia South, stormed the party office to submit his form to seek re-election in the NPP primaries in the constituency.
People travelling in cars were seen joining the NPP supporters as they also shouted victory for the NPP and Nana Akufo Addo. Within minutes what was supposed to be a simple submission of forms turned out to be a rally.
Napo, who certainly looked impressed about was happening, described the upcoming NPP polls as a family affair so he entreated the party faithful to be decorous during campaign to protect party unity.
He slammed the NDC administration for destroying the country with their bad policies and programmes, stressing that the NPP needs total unity and peace in order to capture political power in 2016 to develop the country.
Napo, who had brought massive development to Manhyia South in the areas of education, health, scholarship to brilliant but needy students, among others, said he has unfinished business with the constituency.
The Manhyia South MP said he would complete all the significant projects that he had started in the area before 2016, promising that he has additional projects to better the lives of his constituents after the 2016 polls.
Alhaji Abuba, Manhyia South NPP Organizer, said Napo would contest the seat unopposed due to his brilliant works as MP, saying “all the people including the chiefs and opinion leaders in the area want Napo to go unopposed.”
