- A Youth Wing of the NPP has declared its stance to ensure the reelection of Bugri Naabu
- They state the NPP chairman’s efforts are unmatched in the region
- Their statement follows the outburst of Bugri who threatened to resign if the Northern Regional Minister is not sacked
A youth wing of the New Patriotic Party, calling itself the Coalition of NPP Youth in the Northern Region has embarked on a regional campaign to keep the region’s chairman Daniel Bugri Naabu at his post.
According to the group, the NPP chairman’s efforts which led to the party winning 13 out of the 31 parliamentary seats available, is a sure proof of his dedication to the party.
They seek to persuade the Electoral College of the NPP in the region, to keep the party chairman in his position.
In a report by Citi FM, the leader of the group, Adam Mohammed Amin noted that if the party was to replace the Northern Regional NPP chairman, it would suffer a huge setback.
“Daniel Bugri Naabu has not only increased the Presidential votes in the Northern Region but has also won more Parliamentary seats for the NPP at the 2016 elections which none of his predecessors has done since 1992.
If Chairman Bugri Naabu can achieve this record within just four years, then it means he can do much better when retained as the Northern Regional Chairman,” Mohammed Amin stated.
The Youth leader further stressed the importance of Bugri’s achievements in the past, describing him as a benevolent person who plays the role of a father to all and supports all needy individuals regardless of their political, religious or ethnic affiliation.
The group, noting all these traits declared that they will pull their efforts together, to ensure the reelection of Bugri Naabu.
Mr. Naabu said he had forwarded more than one letter to the president to report the matter to him and requested that the minister be removed from his position immediately.
He added that if the minister remained at post, it was going to cause the NPP dearly because his actions would result in the party losing some places they struggled to win in the last election.
