Member of Parliament (MP) for the Yapei-Kusawgu Constituency in the Savannah Region, John Abdulai Jinapor has disclosed that the time is now ripe to payback his younger brother in his own coin for openly campaigning against him during the 2016 polls.
The former Deputy
Minister has therefore promised not to support his brother’s bid to become MP
for Damongo because his brother, Samuel Abu Jinapor, a Seputy Chief of Staff,
campaigned against him in 2016.
The two brothers belong to the two dominant parties in the
country – John Jinapor belongs to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) while
Samuel Jinapor belongs to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) serving as a
deputy Chief of Staff.
According to the elder of the two, John Jinapor, his younger
brother mounted the campaign platform in Yapei in 2016 and campaigned against
him, appealing to voters to vote for his NPP contender for the parliamentary
seat at the time.
This he said has informed his resolve to also campaign for
the NDC candidate in Damongo where Samuel Jinapor wants to be MP.
“I will be in Damongo . There will be a big rally
there. I will also mount the campaign platform and campaign for Mutawakilu[ the
NDC candidate not my brother],” he declared on Asempa FM yesterday

“Sometimes we meet and talk, just that we avoid

three months we didn’t speak to each other. It created lots of
problems…” he disclosed.
