The NDC in the Bole-Bamboi Constituency on the night of 7th September, 2020 held a press conference immediately after the Vice President Dr. Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia visited the Bolewura’s Palace as part his tour of the Savannah Region, and expressed their disappointment in the NPP and the Vice- President for his message especially how he got his information into his delivery tracker which they decided to call the “sakawa tracker”.
Speaking at the press conference in the NDC office in Bole Bashiru Amantana said the Vice President mentioned what he said are achievements of the NPP government his delivery tracker but they do not exist.
Mr Amantana said the Vice -President also used the Bolewura’s Palace Chief as a rally ground of his NPP party instead of telling the chiefs their achievements in their four years in office in the Constituency.
