We assure you, we are not ungrateful people – Wa Naa to Mahama

He said the people of the Waala traditional area are happy with the sea of projects bequeathed to them which has upped their living standards and bettered their lives. “We assure you that we are not ungrateful,” he added

He stated that ”the era of juicy promises, delivered in flowery languages, enhanced by ridiculous token gifts is fast becoming a thing of the past and is been replaced by evidence-based campaigns. Most Ghanaians are now discerning and will make informed decisions based on the track record of the various political parties”.

Naa Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo advised the former president and his entourage to campaign based on issues and which will be replete with civility, decorum, and respect for divergent political views adding that that is the beauty of democracy.

We assure you, we are not ungrateful people – Wa Naa to Mahama

”We are by this calling on all political parties to desist from hate campaigns as evidence showed that, intemperate language, mudslinging as well as vitriolic attacks has never won elections. Politics should not divide us to the extent that we cannot tolerate the existence of one another,’’ he said

Former President John Dramani Mahama lamented about projects that were started under his administration but have now been abandoned by the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

He cited hostels and lecture theatres at the Wa campus of the Simon Dombo University of Business and Integrated Development Studies (WA UDS) and the Wa-Tumu-Bolga road.

Mr. Mahama promised to complete the abandoned projects and fix the roads.
