The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has announced a package to compensate aspirants who lost in the just ended parliamentary elections.
The party says the failed parliamentary candidates will be appointed to positions if the NPP is re-elected in the 2020 general elections.
The Northern Regional Minister, Salifu Saeed, announced the plan an exclusive interview with Starr News while encouraging aspirants of the Tamale North constituency to accept the outcome of the primaries.
“By the end of the day the one who will win get more votes, it’s going to be a win for the party, there won’t be a loser. We are calling on the other people who will not make it to support the candidate, thank God we are in power definitely in governance, there are a lot of positions that some of them will be put into. Sometimes they may not call you honourable MP but where you will be put into will be a very responsible position that you can use to empower our people,” he said.
He urged them to team up and work together to win power for the NPP so they can be put in high profile positions.
He told supporters of the losing aspirants not to be perturbed because the party will never leave their candidates desolated.
“our party people should remain very resolute, the one who will win, they shouldn’t be perturbed, we will see where we will fix them”
