A group by the name ‘Nana Mma’ have begun mobilizing support for the ruling New Patriotic Party in the forthcoming general elections.
The group are graduates and beneficiaries of the NPP’s flagship policy free Senior High School.
Based in Asawase in Kumasi of the Ashanti Region, the group started as a WhatsApp platform with a few members before turning into a network of first-time voters with over 200 members campaigning for the NPP.
At the recent campaign launch of the NPP in the Asawase Constituency, the group displayed social skills aimed at wooing their peers to vote for the party.
The Asawase seat is considered a stronghold of the National Democratic Congress which has held power for 16 years under Alhaji Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka.
The Asawase NPP Parliamentary Candidate, Alidu Seidu described the group’s actions and initiative as working towards victory for the party, since according to him, the incumbent NDC parliamentary candidate has not done much for the constituency.
“You have an MP whom you have given your mandate to for 16 years and he has the guts to tell you that as for him, he has nothing to offer you, no support, jobs, nothing,” he said.
The parliamentarian added that the current demeanor of the NDC parliamentary candidate will encourage electorates vote him out of power.
