Go to your dad’s home to challenge as MP – John Mahama to Abu Jinapor
Previous President John Dramani Mahama has in an inconspicuous message told the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary contender for the Damongo Constituency, Abu Jinapor, to go to his dad’s home of Buipe in the Yapei-Kusawgu Constituency to challenge as a Member of Parliament rather than Damongo where his mom hails from.
Talking during an enormous greeting to Damongo where he was brought into the world on Saturday, Mr. Mahama clarified “When I went to Bole in 1995 to challenge as a parliamentary applicant on the ticket of the NDC, they disclosed to me Alhaji Gilbert Iddi was the one coming to challenge and encouraged me to go to Damongo where my mom hails from.”
He added: “I went to Damongo and met the NDC heads and they took a gander at me in an off-kilter way lastly inquired as to whether I don’t have the foggiest idea about my dad’s home and I answered ‘I know'”.
“So they revealed to me Gonjas don’t acquire from their mom’s home yet their dad’s home”.
“I, consequently, returned to my dad’s home of Bole, challenged and won to turn into the MP for the Bole-Bamboi Constituency,” Mr. Mahama revealed.
The NDC flagbearer said the Damongo Constituency seat isn’t available to be purchased and that if the originator of the Gonja Kingdom, Sumaila Ndewura Jakpa was searching for cash, he would have sold the immense land he prevailed.
He likewise stated, “No Gonja is a slave and I’ve never heard they have purchased or sold a Gonja into bondage”.
