The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has begun a campaign to mobilise supporters of the party for the new electoral roll scheduled to start later this month.
National Nasara Coordinator for the NPP, Abdul-Aziz Haruna Futa, currently on a tour of all 16 regions of the country to mobilise support for the compilation of the new voters’ register.
The tour, according to Mr Futa, begun in the Central Region on May 30, 2020, afforded him and his team the opportunity to educate the Zongo communities on how to follow the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Ghana Health Service (GHS) protocols, to protect themselves against the global pandemic, Covid-19.
He indicated that the campaign, dubbed 'We Care Campaign', is part of a raft of plans his outfit has outlined to get Zongo residents informed about the pandemic, as well as propagate the commitment of NPP and the Nasara, towards the fight against Covid-19.
He assured residents in the Zongo communities that the Nasara will keep supporting them in this difficult time because there cannot be effective political participation if people are not in good health.
Mr Futa used the opportunity to distribute nose masks hand sanitisers, liquid soap and some other protective equipment to the Zongo communities in the Central Region. He encouraged the residents to come out to register when the Electoral Commission starts registering people for the new voters’ register.
“We understand that we are in hard times, nevertheless the President, Nana Akufo-Addo has shown true leadership by how he has effectively managed Ghana in the past three and a half years, especially during this global pandemic - Covid-19.
"However, we have to consolidate his efforts and support him to do more by coming out to register when the Electoral Commission begins the exercise. This is the surest way to vote and reaffirm his leadership come 7th December 2020, Insha Allah,” he said.
His tour of the rest of the Regions continues on Monday, June 9, 2020. He was accompanied by his two Deputies, Abdul Tarick Bonsu and Hajia Ayisha Yusif.
