He polled 618 votes of the 754 ballots to beat two other contestants, Mr Rawfield Abelio and Mr Rashid Agana Bawa who both secured 82 and 53, respectively.

He said the current MP was only interested in criticising the government particularly the President and his Vice wi
thout raising any issues that concerned the welfare of the people in the Constituency.

‘In 2024, we are taking the fight straight to him and I’m confident that I would beat him, if someone had contested him in their primaries, Isaac Adongo would have lost, so he will not have it easy in Bolgatanga Central,’ he said.

The Regional Secretary noted that he was always in touch with the constituents, and they had been complaining of lack of jobs especially for the youth and assured that he would work to reduce the employment rate in the area when elected to Parliament in 2024.

‘If you put your ears on the ground, you will realise that I have given several jobs from many departments to a lot of people through my lobbying powers and this is the time we have to take him out,’ he added.
