Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Thursday afternoon, brought the entire metropolis of Tamale to a standstill when he arrived ahead of Saturday’s National Delegates’ Conference of the New Patriotic Party.
Nana Addo was met at the Tamale Airport and ushered through the principal streets of Tamale by thousands of NPP supporters clad in party paraphernalia, with over 500 motorbikes leading the procession.
There were chants of “No Nana, No Vote” and “Shei Nana”, to wit “unless Nana”, by residents of Tamale who had lined up along the streets of Tamale, making it emphatically clear that Nana Akufo-Addo is the man to rescue Ghana from the hardships and hopelessness the country is currently finds herself in.
Nana Addo’s first point of call, on arrival, was the Tamale Central Mosque, where he was received by the Chief Imam of Tamale, Imam Abdul Salam Ahmed.
He informed the Chief Imam that the purpose of his presence in Tamale was because of the NPP’s National delegates’ conference, scheduled to take place on Saturday, at the Tamale Sports Stadium. Nana Addo also took the opportunity to inform the Chief Imam of his arrival into the country after taking a six month break from politics.
In this regard, Nana Addo asked the Chief Imam for his blessings as he seeks to win, once again, the nomination of the NPP as its presidential candidate for the 2016 elections.
The Chief Imam, on his part, prayed for Allah’s guidance and protection for Nana Addo, further asking the Almighty Allah to order Nana Addo’s steps in his future endeavours.
Nana Akufo-Addo followed up this visit by calling on Skeikh Bayan Baha, leader of the Ahali Sunna in Tamale. As an influential Moslem cleric in Tamale, Nana Addo thanked him for his and the support other Moslem clerics in Tamale.
Whilst in Tamale, Nana Akufo-Addo will deliver a speech on Friday in honour of the late Tolon Na, Alhaji Yakubu Tali.
