Mrs Abayage was
speaking at a Regional Tertiary Students Confederacy (TESCON) conference. The
event also formed part of the commemoration of 20th Anniversary of TESCON.

The event
attracted thousands of students, graduates, businesses and party executives of
the region among others.

The Upper East regional Minister used the occasion to commend TESCON for its role in the success of the New Patriotic Party.  She further urged the members to continue spreading the good deeds of the government.

“You deserve commendation for your hard-work. But, do not forget to tell your constituents that the NDC is not an alternative, they never had any profiting policies for the region.

Mrs Abayage
indicated that the region is progressively rising due to the prudent management
of the economy and innovative policies introduced by the Akufo-Addo led
government.  She stressed on the need for
the Upper East region to align with her government to better the lives of
farmers andentrepreneurs    

The TESCON @ 20 celebration was under the theme: ‘Revamping, Revitalising and Repositioning Our Field Machinery for Victory 2020: TESCON Beyond Campus,” she said.

“The NDC has no
message, but rather attacking our policies and programmes. They keep saying the
Nana Addo-led regime is doing nothing; let them continue. I am happy Ghanaians
are seeing the good works this government is doing,” she said.

According to
her, the Free Senior High School policy has greatly impacted lives in the rural
areas of the region. She added that the Planting for Food and Jobs has also
brought a lot of relief to the framers in the region.   

The party also
presented motorbikes to the Youth Wings in the 15 constituencies of the Upper
East Region.
