The Member of Parliament for Tamale North constituency, Alhaji Alhassan S. Suhuyini, has descended heavily on the New Patriotic Party (NPP’s) parliamentary candidate for Tamale North Alhassan Dahamani, for peddling falsehood against members of Andani Royal Family of Dagbon traditional area.
The NPP parliamentary candidate, Alhassan Dahamani in an interview during the NPP parliamentary elections at the Tamale North, alleged that members of Andani Royal family of Dagbon persuaded him to join the ruling NPP in the Northern Region.
Wading into the matter, the NDC law maker, said the NPP parliamentary candidate is only seeking attention from the electorates and needed to deploy this falsehood against Andani Royal family to gained sympathy from the people in the constituency.
He said Mr Dahamani’s consistent fulminating of Andani Royal family is just a decoy to make him popular in the constituency. “He underestimate the intelligence of the people of this constituency, but am very confident that the people of Tamale North. They are much smarter than he thinks. Any attempt to put woods in to their eyes will not work”.
The NDC legislature speaking to Diamondfmonline.com, stated that, Mr Dahamani during the 2012 general elections lied to the people of Tamale North claiming that he was a member of the NDC in the region.
“I am very consoled with the fact that he has served as a Member of Parliament in this constituency before, and he deceived them, that he was a member of NDC”.
“And so with the summersault he has done and has not even stopped deceiving; suggesting rather ridiculously, that one faction of the traditional authority (in Dagbon has asked him to join NPP) whichI couldn’t believe; that someone would be that bold and dishonest on National Television saying the traditional authority has asked him to join the NPP. I couldn’t believe it. But, it just tells you how boldly some people think that, politics is about lies and deceiving the people. I think the people of Tamale North are smarter than he thinks he is. And I know they would teach him a lesson come 2020”, he narrated.
He said the NDC as a party will always serve the people of Tamale North better and will continue to do as such to develop the area.
