Alhaji Amidu Sulemana, former Member of Parliament for Sissala West Constituency has stated that he has no preferred candidate among the three seeking to succeed him in the impending National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary primaries.
“I have heard that some people are going
around and indicating that am supporting or sponsoring some candidates as
against others; well, these are all rumours”, he said
Alhaji Sulemana stated ths in an interview
with the Ghana News Agency at Tumu in the Sissala East Municipality.
Alhaji Sulemana who is also the former Upper
West Regional Minister noted that no aspirant should use his name in a manner
that suggested he/she had his support when canvassing for votes.
He indicated that whoever that won the
election was NDC’s candidate and all of them were obliged to support the person
in the 2020 elections.
The former MP advised the candidates to
conduct their campaign in a clean and peaceful manner devoid of insults and
“All I want is for them to campaign in a
manner that will not bring quarrels among themselves so that after the
elections, we can still come together and forge ahead with a unified front to recapture
the seat”, he said.
Alhaji Sulemana appealed to all candidates
to campaign based on ideas that would bring development to the people they seek
to represent in parliament.
