The Northern Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mohammed Bantima Samba Adam has donated 1,000 bags of sugar to the party supporters in all the 18 constituencies.
According to his aide, Abubakari Rabiu, each of the 18 constituencies will receive 50 bags of the 1,000 bags while the remaining number is shared for opinion leaders and some Islamic preachers.
“Chairman Samba donates 50bags of Sugar to each of 18 constituency Secretariet in Northern Region for Ramadan”, the aide wrote on Facebook.
This will amount to 4 billion old cedis that is 400,000 Ghana cedis in monetary terms looking at the current price of sugar in the country.
The regional chairman has been supporting the NPP in various constituencies with food items during Ramadan or any festive season to enable party supporters enjoy the celebration.
It was rumoured that the chairmam wouldn’t be able to make the annual donations as usual looking at the economic difficulty the country presently faces, and this gesture has come to kill that rumours.
Some constituency executives who spoke to ghdominancenews.com following this decision to distribute the sugar said the chairman is a man of his own words, emphasizing that he has been able to fulfill this promise since he became the party’s chairmam in the region.
“Yes, I can confirm to you that we will be receiving our Ramadan sugar soon from the regional chairman. We can only thank him for keeping to to his words. There has never been a year that he doesn’t support us with sugar and other items. And this one is not an exception”, Tolon NPP Constituency Youth Organizer, Alhaji Kobshiyi said.
