Baba Jamal Donates To NPP

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Akwatia in the Eastern Region, Baba Jamal who is also Deputy Minister of Employrnent and Labour Relations, has donated a computer, UPs, a printer and accessories to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) office in Akwatia.

The donation was made during a visit to the NPP office to interact with the party's constituency executives to find out how best the two parties could join hands to develop Akwatia. The gesture was also aimed at fostering peace and unity between his party's supporters and the NPP.

"The visit was to solicit your views on how best to develop Akwatia" he said.

Making the donation at Akwatia on Easter Monday, Jamal who is the only NDC parliamentary candidate for the Akwatia seat for the NDC since 1996 said, he doesn't want a repeat of the conflict, accusations and counter accusations that existed between his supporters on the one hand, and the NPP supporters on the other.

He said however, that, the donation was not to "buy" the minds of the NPP but rather to build bridges between their two political parties so as to minimize the political tension that exist between the two parties at Akwatia.

"We should all ensure that we work together for the truth. We expect peace and unity to reign in the 2016 general elections and not to repeat the kind of conflict and animosity that characterized previous elections in Akwatia" he emphasized.

He said in all their party political campaigns, it was imperative that the two sides allowed the truth to be their vanguard, during and after the 2016 elections.

Alhaji Baba Yakubu, the NPP chairman for Akwatia, expressed his happiness over the gesture. He said the donation would go a long way to see to the day-to-day secretarial needs of his party.

This would be the second time Baba Jamal has donated to the Akwatia NPP office.
