UW: Former NPP Regional Organizer Finally Reveals Why He Lost his Position

Mr. Mustapha Dimah was NPP Upper West Regional Organizer

Alhaji Mustapha Goveir, former Upper West Regional Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has blamed his loss on the current Organizer, Mr. Alaska B. Kanton, who dethroned him by contesting him in the elections.

The influential politician posited that the decision by the newly elected organizer to contest him was not a popular one since the two are related.

Alhaaj Goveir revealed that given the fact that his mum and the mother of Alaska are close pals, he stated he least expected Alaska to contest against him in the last NPP regional executive elections held in May.

According to him, he would not have contested Alaska who he describes as a brother, if he was in the same situation Alaska had found himself in.

He said this to Waris Annaakaa of Home Radio on Tuesday, July 19, 2022, in response to his loss as the regional organizer during the regional executive elections of the party.

Making observations of what might have accounted for his loss, he told Waris: “I heard some said I had been in office for far too long. But look, John Boadu (the immediate past NPP General -Secretary) had served in different capacities in the party for good 17 years, but for me, just 12 years and people are complaining that I’d served for too long.”

“In addition, I also heard some party people were also worried that I was driving a nice vehicle,” he said amid laughter. “Ironically, the one who they voted for is even richer than me but that’s the person they voted for at my expense but were complaining of the kind of vehicle I was using.”

According to Mr. Dimah, he can’t fathom why people prefer to see others stagnant and not progress at all in life.

The regional elections saw Mr. Alaska Kanton pipped Goveir by 98 votes as against 65. Seidu I. Suleman (Alele) garnered 55 votes, A. Rauf Zakariah also polled 16 votes while Iddrisu Bomison managed to get only 8 votes.
