She said the move was as a result of several requests made by electorates for footballs and jerseys, “I have gone round all the electoral areas, and everywhere I went, the youth requested for footballs and jerseys.
“So we decided as part of our strategies for the 2020 campaign to provide each electoral area with a football and two sets of customized jerseys.”
Madam Abayage was speaking to a section of the media after a health walk on major streets within the Navrongo Township to galvanise votes in the December 7, 2020 elections.
She said “For the 35 electoral areas, we have 70 sets of jerseys and 35 footballs. Instead of just giving them the jerseys and footballs, we decided to organise a football match and since it is a sporting activity we added a health walk.”
The PC, who is also the Upper East Regional Minister, said the health walk was to give the NPP more visibility and draw greater attention to the Party as they prepared for the elections in December.
