A group calling itself Patriotic Communicators Front of the North East Region has refuted reports in the media that the Member of Parliament (MP) for Gambaga-Nalerigu constituency, Hajia Alima Mahama was chased out of Dagbiriboari, a community in the constituency by some aggrieved members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) during a campaign tour.
Hajia Alima who is also the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development is reported to have visited the community on Wednesday, April 22 with some leadership of the party to interact with delegates ahead of the party’s primaries as well as donate some items to the residents to help in the fight against the COVID-19.
The reports alleged that the MP was hooted at and chased out of the community by some aggrieved members the NPP for allegedly failing to fulfil her promises.
But the group has refuted the reports and accused opposition political parties of spreading propaganda, insisting that the MP and her team had a successful meeting with the delegates.
A statement signed by a leader of the group, Mr Simon Suayam described the media reports "as malicious and desperate attempt to create bad press for the hard-working MP".
The statement said the people of Nalerigu-Gambaga were rather proud and happy of the sterling performances of the MP who has initiated numerous development interventions in the constituency.
The statement listed some major achievements of Hajia Alima Mahama to include the construction of three new Senior High Schools in Sakogu, Langbinsi and Gbintiri, Gambaga and Nalerigu township roads, the construction of Gbintiri road which is fast progressing, seed capital for over 120 women groups and the provision of street lights in some major towns in the constituency.
It added that Dagbiriboari, the community where it was alleged that the MP was hooted at, has also benefited from a number of projects including a health facility currently in use.
The statement therefore, appealed to the general public to disregard the said reports as they were mere propaganda aimed at giving her bad press.
