The Presidential Candidate of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Mr. Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, has called on the Elders of the Dagbon traditional area of the Northern Region to continuously make “development the key to the progress of the people”.
Mr. Greenstreet mentioned that given “the enormous land resource that the people have, with peace, security and investment they can be guaranteed of the emergence of enhanced mechanized agrarian economy to boost national food production”.
Dagbon is known for food production especially yam cultivation, one of the major staple foods for the country, but has only one rainy season with minimal irrigation.
He said that even though justice is still being demanded by the people over the gruesome murder of the late Yaa Naa Yakubu Andani II, the people should not be denied of other rights including security and national economic investment.
He made this statement when he paid a courtesy call on the Kampapuana (Regent of Dagbon) – Yakubu Abdulai Andani at the Naa Gbewaa palace in Yendi.
Together with the Party’s National Chairman, Prof. Edmund Delle and other national and regional executives, Mr. Greenstreet also visited Nanton, Karaga, Gushegu, Zabzugu, Tatale and Saboba to interact with Party supporters. At these places, the people repeatedly called on the CPP to “separate the fight” between NPP and NDC – “GOOZABLI” as spoken in Dagbani.
The CPP campaign tour dubbed “Apam Foforↄ” (new covenant) also introduced parliamentary candidates in these constituencies.
