The current MP, Benson Tongo Baba, decided to discontinue his interest in the position recently.
Meanwhile, in the Builsa South Constituency, Dr. Clement Abass Apaak, the sitting MP, would contest unopposed.
In Tempane, the sitting MP, Lydia Akanvariba Lamisi, would also run unopposed.
When Jonathan Abdallah Salifu, the Upper East Regional Communication Officer, spoke to Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show today, February 28, 2023, he explained that the huge number indicates the growth of interest in the NDC.
“You see the number? It shows you the party has become attractive. People have interest in the party,” he said.
