According to him, the loss of the seat to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) was a result of issues that could have been avoided, stressing that the constituency has been a stronghold of the NPP.
Giving an account of the life of the party in the Savannah Region during Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia’s tour of the region, Jinapor, who doubles as the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, recounted that Kpembe which falls under the Salaga South Constituency is the birth ground of the NPP in the region.
“In the Gonjaland, this is the bedrock and birth place of the New Patriotic Party. J.A. Braimah in private life was the person who formed the NPP here and at the height of President Nkrumah’s power and political authority, here in Kpembe NPP was always popular and we won all the elections from 1950, 1951 and even the independence election through J.A. Braimah won it in this constituency. So this is the heart ground of the New Patriotic Party,” Jinapor said.
“Even when we are struggling with votes in other parts of Gonjaland, Salaga South always stands firm for the NPP. Something little just went amidst in 2020 and I have all confidence that with your support and leadership and the support of the Kpembewura and the party that by the Grace of God through the blessings of the Kpembewura and the Imam and all the people of Kpembe Kpembe, Salaga South will come back home to the elephant family,” he said.
