For fried-fish to walk will be easier than NPP winning Sagnarigu seat ~ A.B.A hits

Outgoing Member of Parliament for Sagnarigu constituency, Alhaji A.B.A Fuseini has assured the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress NDC, John Drammani Mahama of his support for the party and it’s parliamentary candidate for the area to retain the seat for the NDC with all his might and influence.

Addressing party supporters at the Bagabaga College of Education in Tamale Tuesday, February 6, 2024 during the NDC’s Building Ghana Tour by the Mr. John Mahama, A.B.A indicated that it was impossible for the governing New Patriotic Party NPP to win the Sagnarigu Parliamentary seat.

“Your excellency, I want to also stand here and assure you, by the grace of almighty Allah, the Sagnarigu constituency has come to stay with the NDC perpetually, it is never going anywhere. Your excellency, we are going to retain the Sagnarigu constituency, and our brother Attah Issah will be the Member of Parliament for Sagnarigu”, the MP assured.

“Your excellency, I want to say here, that the Sagnarigu constituency, NPP making any gains in Sagnarigu Constituency is as good as saying that, a fish that has been caught, that has been smoked and dried and is in the store for sale. It is easier for that fish to walk back to the sea than the NPP (and its parliamentary candidate) to win the Sagnarigu seat. I say this because, when the mad fish comes to tell you the crocodile has one eye, it knows what it is talking about”, he added.

He also took the opportunity to assure the NDC flagbearer that, Sagnarigu has always given the party up to 80% votes, and this time around they will increase it to 90% in the December 7th elections.

“So Mr. President, I want to assure you, Sagnarigu from its inception has been the world bank of NDC in the Northern Region. Now let me clarify what I mean by the world bank. I am saying in terms of numerical strength. But I am talking about the percentage and quantum of votes registered by Sagnarigu constituency. And in the first year in the creation of Sagnarigu constituency, we registered almost 82% for president Mahama. I want to assure you that, by the grace of Allah, Inshallah, Inshallah, Inshallah, on December 7th, when the ballots are open and counted, your excellency, we shall give you 90% of the votes in Sagnarigu”, Alhaji A. B. A. Fuseini concluded.

The former Deputy Northern Regional minister further admonished supporters to be circumspect in order not to thwart the party’s efforts in unifying the NDC across the constituency and beyond to recapture power come December 2024.

Alhaji A. B. A. Fuseini was defeated in last parliamentary primaries the NDC held in the Sagnarigu constituency, by the party’s accountant, hon. Atta Issah to annex the candidature.

He has since not spoken much, which their opponents say he is not happy with his successor and wants the seat to go into opposition, but his comments today seems to be the straw that has broken the camel’s back.
