Another 3 NDC MPs to go unopposed in upcoming parliamentary primaries


Alhaji Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini, a member of parliament who represents Tamale North Constituency, is one of three current legislators who will not be challenged in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary primaries.

Daniel Nsala Wakpal of Kpandai and Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale Central, Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed, are the other two candidates from the Northern Region. Their rivals backed out at the end of the nomination period.

In order to make room for the screening of potential candidates, the NDC stopped accepting nomination forms until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 22, 2023.

In the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary primaries in all 18 Northern Region constituencies, 72 candidates had picked nomination forms to compete.

As of Thursday, March 2, 2023, the constituencies of Nanton and Sagnarigu had the most nomination forms picked.

Northern Regional Secretary of the NDC, Mohammed Abdul Salam in a previous selective meeting with, uncovered that it was conceivable more candidates could appear as the end date inches nearer however that won’t ever occur.

He said that nominations were supposed to close on March 22, 2023, but they quickly said that Nanton and Sagnarigu, which had the most applicants, each had seven people.

Seventy-two candidates have picked nomination forms thus far. Since they have only picked up the forms, it is impossible to say for sure whether a candidate is unopposed until nominations close. It’s possible for people to take forms and not pay the filing fees. We won’t be able to reach a comprehensive conclusion about the specifics of unopposed constituencies until then. With seven candidates each, Sagnarigu and Nanton currently have the most candidates, he disclosed.
