The Northern Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Daniel Bugri Naabu, has said the party has succeeded in breaking the dominance of its main opponent, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Northern region.
He said the NDC can no longer hold on to the Northern region as its strong hold.
Mr Naabu, who touted his achievements as chairman of the party, promised to capture more seats for the NPP in the next election, adding that the party is poised to win at least 30 out of the 31 seats in the region.
“The first time I took over this region, I’ve been able to win 13 seats. Now that the NDC is not the incumbent [party], I can assure you, out of the  seats if I don’t take 30 [seats] I will take 29 seats,” he assured.
The NDC has, in previous elections, dominated the Northern region, winning most of the parliamentary seats.
Though the NDC won more seats (18) than the NPP (13) in the 2016 election, it experienced its worse performance, losing more seats to the NPP.
Mr Naabu said he has launched an “Operation win all seats” agenda to capture more seats for the NPP in the 2020 election.
Chairman Naabu who is seeking reelection, urged the delegates to retain him to accomplish his unfinished agenda.
“You don’t change a winning team,” he suggested in an exclusive interview with radiotamale.com.
He also cautioned the party’s delegates to be mindful of people vying for positions at the regional level who may want to take advantage of members of the party to advance their personal agenda.
He described the NPP constituency elections held over the weekend as a huge success.
