Disclaimer: The below views summarize a series of interactions with people in the Tamale Central Constituency and does not in any way reflect the writer’s personal views.
It is sixty (60) days to Ghana’s general elections, yet indications from the NPP and NDC camps in the Tamale central constituency seem to favor the NDC.
2016 was a different trend with the emergence of Dr. Barhama Anyass as the NPP’s parliamentary candidate for the Tamale Central Constituency. Many people aside from political differences, applauded the personality of Dr. Anyass. His emergence in the quest for the position brought more competition in that electioneering year.
While most of the party members knew the seat wasn’t for them, they still did their campaign well but to no avail, he conceded to Hon. Inusah Fuseini of the NDC with a wide margin.
Unlike in 2016, 2020 seems to be a different year. Our inquiries have some anomalies in the NABCO CEO’s campaign. While personally, Dr. Anyass is a very good man whose election as MP for the constituency will bring numerous developmental projects, his campaign strategy, including his team, is somewhat poor.
Even though the NDC too had a change in their candidate, they seem to still have more probability of winning the seat compared to the NPP.
It is true that Hon. Mutala messed up a hard time in the Nantong Constituency, but people may still vouch for him because of the party. There are still some people who are mad about the candidature of Hon. Mutala, but the majority are compelled by the flag to vote for him.
On the NPP’s side, Dr. Anyass would have still been the right person to represent them, but ……..Tamale central constituency: has the NPP lost hope
