The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary Candidate for Tamale Central Constituency in the just-ended 2020 elections, Dr. Ibrahim Anyars, has expressed heartfelt gratitude to the people of the Northern Region for showing so much love towards the ruling party.
This follows the NPP winning of 9 out of 18 seats in the region in the December 7 polls.
According to Dr. Anyars, this shows that the Northern Region was empathetic with the NPP.
He further congratulated all the NPP MPs-elect from the Northern Region.
This was contained in a Facebook post by Dr. Ibrahim Anyars on his page.
Despite losing to his contender, Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr. Anyars saw his votes appreciating in the figures as compared to 2016.
For over 28 years, the constituency has been voting for the NDC.
But the Dr Anyars 2020 campaign attracted thousands of people, a clear indication of advancement by the elephant party.
The community campaign pulled voluntarily larger crowds than any other NPP gathering in the Constituency since 1992.
Below is the full post:
