A staunch member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Yendi Constituency of the Northern Region has called on residents regardless of their political persuasion to see son of the former Vice President Alhaji Farouk Aliu Mahama as the development God of the area.
Ras Amingos as popularly called, revealed that his stance may court some enemies for him but maintained that he was speaking the truth based on the evidence available to him reiterating he is unfazed by what opponents may say or do to him.
In a video widely circulated on social media, he was heard in Dagbanli cataloguing reasons why Farouk Aliu Mahama who is a New Patriotic Party (NPP) aspiring Parliamentary Candidate must be supported by all.
“If you meet me and you are angry because I spoke the truth, you can choose to greet me or not but be reminded that I will always speak the truth even at the point of death. We will continue to hail the good works of Alhaji Farouk Mahama”, he stated in part.

I am bringing you good news, our troubles in Naya (Yendi) are over. Through Alhaji Farouk Mahama the freezer at the mortuary is in. It has the capacity of taking 12 bodies which is the biggest and a new one from. We thank him and praise him for his effort. The structure itself has been refurbished and put in proper use. I want all of you to understand that he is our God. Some of you may not like what I am saying but irrespective of your views bear in mind he is the savior of Yendi.
Tamale South Constituency have Lawyer Haruna Iddrisu as their God and Yendi yours is Farouk Mahama and I would want you all to welcome him. He is the one who has provided you with potable water in almost all the villages amounting to several millions of cedis. It is not politics but stop what you are doing as youth and hail what is good for your development.
God will punish and chase out all those working against the progress of Yendi either NPP or NDC. I am an NDC member but whoever is bringing about development I welcome it because Yendi is my town. What he has done is going to the benefit of both NDC and NPP. The new mortuary would accommodate everyone before burial irrespective of the person’s political affiliation. Whether we agree to my assertion or not Farouk is our Saviour and God taking into account what he has done.
If you meet me and you are angry because I spoke the truth, you can choose to greet me or not but reminded that I will always speak the truth. We will continue to hail the good works of Alhaji Farouk Mahama
