Leadership of the People's National Convention, PNC, announces it is working hard to annex four seats in the Upper East Region in the less-than 98 days parliamentary and presidential race.
The Upper East Regional Executive of the PNC made this disclosure when the party out-doored its parliamentary candidate for the Navrongo Central Constituency, Joseph Weguri Pwoawuvi, ahead of the December 7 polls.
Speaking at the campaign launch in Navrongo of the Upper East Region, the Regional Secretary of the party, Roger Adongo, assured the party was going to snatch three seats from the National Democratic Congress, NDC to incorporate to its only seat in the Builsa South Constituency.
He categorically stated the party was convinced that its parliamentary candidate in the Talensi Constituency, Dr. Michael Wombeogo was working around the clock to unseat the incumbent NDC Member of Parliament, MP, BT Baba and win the slot for the PNC.
He also added the party would leave no stone unturned to win in the Bolgatanga Central and Navrongo Constituencies, and called on party's sympathisers to rise up vociferously to canvass votes for the presidential candidate of the party, Dr. Edward Nasigri Mahama to win the race.
Mr. Adongo said the PNC presidential candidate was capable of restoring the hopes of Ghanaians and pleaded with the electorate to elect Dr. Mahama for "high pace of development in the country in all sectors of the economy".
He told the enthusiastic supporters of the party at the occasion that a PNC government would construct two irragation dams for every district in the northern part of the country to ensuring all year farming.
This, he said, would not only boost the agricultural sector of the economy, but would give the farmer a boon to lead happier life.
"Nana Akuffo Addo of the NPP promised 'one village, one dam'. This is practically impossible.
"I'm sure Nana has forgotten that dams are not boreholes. We(the PNC) are not going to give pledges that cannot be attained", he said.
Mr. Adongo, however, cautioned all presidential candidates to eschew making promises that were not consistent to the aspirations of the people "because the electorate is discerning and will no longer tolerate this".
The parliamentary candidate for the PNC in the Navrongo Central, Mr. Pwoawuvi, said he was battle ready to flog the MP for the constituency, Mark Woyongo and clinch a landslide victory for the PNC.
He said he was touched by the deplorable living conditions of the constituents and pledged he would find an antidote to their woes if voted into power.
Touching on his priorities, he indicated education, women and children's empowerment were his topmost priorities, stressing he would reinstate the morale of teachers so they would be motivated to churn out intelligent future leaders to mann the affairs of the country.
