According to him, President Akuffo-Addo is the only president who has brought significant improvement in the lives of people living in the Zongo Communities with numerous policies.
Alhaji Aziz Futa made these remarks in Tamale when he was addressed a durbar of the Northern Regional Branch of the Nasara Wing.
“Zongo people, if we don’t vote massively for his Excellency Nana Addo Danquah, Allah will not forgive us”,he remarked.
The regional durbar was organized as part of the party’s activities to marshall suppport going into the 2020 elections.
In attendance were the Inner-Cities and Zongo Development Minister Dr. Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, the Business Development Minister Dr. Mohammed Awal, Regional Chairman Mohammed Bantima Samba, Tamale Mayor Iddrisu Musah Superior, Kamaldeen Abdulai, Farouk Aliu Mahama among others.
Alhaji Aziz Futa added the Zongos are not just going to vote for the NPP and the president for doing that sake, but because of three (3) major reasons, of which he mentioned Free SHS and the Zongo Development Fund and Hajj Affairs.
He explained the FSHS has come to alleviate the suffering of the people of Ghana, particularly, the people of Zongo, adding that there is no household in Zongo community, which has no child benefitting from the implementation of the FSHS.
“Every house, every home, we have our children benefitting from SHS. Our parents used to sell their goats, sell their clothes to pay school fees of their children. But today, FSHS has cancelled all that”, he explained.
“Zongo Development Fund. Zongo ministery… John Mahama has been the president of this country before. He has never laid one block in our Zongo communities. In fact, he hates Islam. He hates Muslims. That is why he attended Ahul Suna program and lied to our elders that he sponsored 40 of our Zongo girls to go to Cuba and learn medicine. Because he does not have respect for our imams…”,he further added.
