The campaign of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the newly created Oti Region has received a major boost after the government’s spokesperson on governance and legal affairs, Herbert N. Krapa, donated 50 motorbikes to the region.

The bikes are supposed to be shared fairly to all eight constituencies in the Oti Region namely Biakoya, Buem, Kadjebi Akan, Nkwanta South, Nkwanta North, Krachi East, Krachi Nchumuru and Krachi West.

Mr. Krapa, an ex-press aide for President Akufo-Addo when the NPP was in opposition, made the donation over the weekend during the party’s regional executive committee meeting at Dambai in the Karachi East Constituency.

At the meeting, the legal practitioner, who originally hails from Botoku in the North Dayi Constituency of the Volta Region, announced his decision to adopt the Oti Region, which to him required adequate support and resources to become an NPP stronghold in future.

Mr. Krapa believes that the Oti Region is “ripe” to be taken by the NPP considering President Akufo-Addo and successive NPP governments’ development record in the area.

This, he said, could only be done if key members of the party from the region and outside the region would invest heavily and support the Oti campaign, saying “It is for this reason that although I am from the Volta Region I have adopted the Oti Region.”

He added that during his two-day tour over the weekend he engaged with executives and party people at the grassroots to understand their needs, share ideas and assist with other strategies that would ensure the NPP secured a minimum of five seats on December 7.

Places visited included Krachi, Nkwanta, Kpasah, Dambai, Ntsumuru, Akan and Buem in Oti Region; and Hohoe, North Dayi and Kpando in the Volta Region.

The Oti Regional Chairman of the NPP, Evans Dapaah, who received the motorbikes on behalf of the party, said, “This has come at the right time. We can now be able to intensify our house-to-house campaigns.”

He revealed that the party’s desire to secure five seats in the region was no fluke, but an achievable target because “the people are tired of voting for the NDC since 1992. They have seen that the NPP has a better record in the area than the NDC.”

He appealed to other members of the party to come to the aid of the Oti Campaign as a lot more motorbikes were needed to traverse the area which roads are not “vehicular friendly.”

He assured that the motorbikes and all resources provided would be fairly shared, well catered and accounted for.
