Lawyer Sulley Sambian who is the party’s Regional Secretary insists that nothing has changed as far as the promises made by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo are concerned as his government ably supported by Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is determined to prosecute them to the admiration of residents.
Addressing a press conference covered by MyNewsGh.com in Walewale, the NPP scribe discounted claims that Dr. Bawumia who hails from the area has reneged on his promise of establishing a watermelon factory; a promise he is said to have made in the run up to the 2016 polls.
“To jump to the conclusions that a promise which has not yet
been fulfilled amounts to a failure to fulfill the same exposes a certain
depravity of thought. The NPP is keen on delivering on its mandate As North Easterners, we are concerned about
the plight of the water Melon farmers. Our brothers, sisters, mothers and
fathers all engage in water Melon farming. So much income is derived by these
farmers and so the NPP is poised on setting up a melon factory
1D1F is the program that is supposed to address this
challenge. However, what the NDC fails to understand is that the 1D1F program
is a private sector led initiative. Government intervenes to ensure that
investors get funding for it. The NPP is determined to fulfill this promise”,
The NDC had earlier in a press conference claimed the NPP failed to deliver on its promises to the people of the area as far as the watermelon factory is concerned.

But Sulley Sambian in reaction to the claim observed “from
the infantile logic of the NDC, once a promise has been made, the fact that it
has not yet been fulfilled amounts to a failure. Only people with warped logic
would come to this conclusion. The NPP will set up a melon factory in this
region before 2020 elections”
