The flagbearer of the Convention People Party, Ivor Green Street says the Northern Region will not be cowed into voting for the National Democratic Congress in the November 7 polls.

In an interview held during a rally in Tamale, Mr Greenstreet said the NDC has for years used the murder of the Yana as a bargaining chip but it won't happen this time around.          

"The people of Dagbon feel that the NDC has taken them as slaves.. They complain of injustice in Ghana and one of them is that 14 years after the death of the Yana, the criminals have not been brought to book, and the man has still not been buried properly. They feel the NDC purposely delayed bringing this justice to them in the knowledge that they will be afraid to go and vote for the NPP," he said.

Mr GreenStreet said the CPP’s crusade is to do away with all forms of disabilities; disability to pay for health care; disability to pay wards' school fees; disability to have jobs for the people to earn money to cater for themselves and their family needs.”

For those who have additional disabilities whether sight, hearing or mobility, Mr Greenstreet said the CPP's call is to empower such people.

He said Ghana was a wealthy nation, but the misuse of the resources by the NDC and the NPP was the reason for Ghana’s woes.

He added that the committee of mines and industry recently reduced the amount of taxes and royalties mining companies paid to the government but added they in the CPP believes the country should rather be gaining more from the country's resources.    

He said that about seventy percent of the country’s income is used in the payment of public sector wages and questioned where the country was going to get the extra revenue to pay for the needed services the people need apart from its natural resources.

Mr Greenstreet said it is the intention of the CPP to harness these resources, add value to them in other to bring relief and provide to the teeming unemployed youth in the country.

He said Ghanaians are tired of the lies and empty promises from other parties, adding that the CPP is assured of victory come November 7 based on its campaign message of a new covenant that the people have endorsed.
