The Parliamentary Candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Talensi constituency, Daniel Duun Mahama, has said that his continuous support, hard work, and perseverance for the party led the delegates’ decision to give him the nod to lead the party at the 2024 general election. 

Mr. Mahama said this when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show with Mark Smith. 

The Parliamentary Candidate said the entire process was satisfying for him. He explained that the high level of camaraderie shown among delegates was par excellence.  

“When the time was due, I came around and met with the people, went around to greet the elders and the executives, and told them of my plan of contesting, and they gave me their blessings. The campaign was fun. Sometimes you go somewhere, and when you are leaving, the next person is entering, and you have to stop and hug each other,” he said.

According to Mr. Mahama, his commitment to the welfare of the party, the party faithful, and the general population of Talensi was his prime selling point. 

“I have made myself like a philanthropist, and this is a gift of God. I have actually been active in supporting the people and the party’s activities since 2008 onward. That made me exposed to the people, and truly, I do not discriminate. I have a policy that every human being with blood is my brother. That policy actually worked across the constituency. When you come, whatever we need to do, we do it together,” he said. 

The parliamentary candidate explained that his plans to contest in two previous primaries had to be put on hold after the intervention of party elders on behalf of more senior members of the party that were in those previous contests. On the said occasion, he had to make way for the former MP for Talensi, John Tia, and the outgoing MP, Benson Tongo Baba. His patience, Mr. Mahama believes, has paid off. 

“In 20012, the elders asked that I leave it. That was when Honourable John Tia and Honourable BT Baba were contesting. At the by-election, I wanted to pick a form, but they asked that I allow Honourable BT Baba to go, and I did. In 2019, I had the plan, but they said I should still allow Honourable BT Baba to go. I did so patiently and supported the party. That is actually why they rewarded me by electing me,” he said.

Mr. Mahama won the election with 250 votes to his name. His closest contender, Solomon TTB Zinekena, polled 183 votes. The PC candidature in the Talensi constituency was contested by eight individuals.
