My Kusaasi people being blocked from joining ‘good’ NPP

Paramount Chief of the Kusaug Traditional area, Naba Asigir Abugrago Azoka II  has complained vehemently over what he describes as a stumbling block to his people who want to join the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

According to him, the NPP is a good party and a number of people want to join the party but there have been several blocks which needs to be taken off in order for them to join.

The King expressing his worry urged Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the leadership of the political party to ensure that their doors are opened to enable his people join without fearing for their safety.

“I am not very happy because I want my people to join the NPP but they are not given the chance. There are obstacles. Many of the people who are in the front line of the NPP do not permit the Kusaasi people to join the NPP. So I’m appealing that when my people or any other person comes to join the NPP because the party is good, please, allow them to join. Don’t pose as obstacles to the enlargement of the NPP,” he said through a translator during the president’s courtesy call on him on Monday, June 21, 2021 as part of his tour of the Upper East Region.

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo promised to address the issues and assured that any stumbling block will be removed from the way to open the doors of the NPP to the people of Bawku.

“One thing I want to do before I leave office in 2025 is to work with you (the Chief) to make sure we remove all obstacles so that the Kusaasis will embrace NPP and make it a dominant political party in the Upper East Region and in the Kusaug area,” he stated.

He added “there is only one Bawku Naba I recognize and that is you (Naba Asigir Abugrago Azoka II) and I will make sure everybody in the area recognizes that”.
