Daniel Mahama, a candidate for the National Democratic Congress’ parliamentary primaries in the Talensi Constituency of the Upper East Region, has stated that the quality of education and improving safe mining among youth are two of the main issues motivating him to run.

Mr. Mahama noted that despite the efforts made by previous Members of Parliament in the area, youth continue to struggle with mining activities. 

He said, “Space and avenues ought to be created where the youth can have the expertise and how they can conduct safe mining. That’s why, as a lawmaker,  you can engage partners, for instance, the School of Mines; a branch can be established here where our youth can also learn and equip themselves in the area of mining.” 

He stressed further that “This Talensi district has been noted as one of the vibrant districts in the region, but the quality of education we want to have is not there.  For instance,  the basic level ought to be equipped with ultramodern, state-of-the-art facilities where our children can have the finest education they desire, but we can’t talk of such here. So, that is also a focus area that I think, when given the opportunity, I will work on.”

The 44-year-old is from the Zubeong community in the Talensi District and made these points after he was vetted successfully and cleared to contest the parliamentary primaries for the NDC in the Talensi Constituency. 

Meanwhile, the 44-year-old is competing against an additional seven aspirants who have equally similar expertise in development. 

He therefore appealed to his colleagues to focus on development issues without personal attacks.
