The Communication Director for the NPP, Peter Aynibisa, is confident that the current Member of Parliament (MP) for Builsa South, Dr. Clement Apaak, can face a tough challenge if the New Patriotic Party (NPP) manages to unite ahead of the 2024 general election.

He made these comments when he spoke to A1 Radio’s Mark Smith on the Day Break Upper East Show. This is after the conclusion of parliamentary primaries for the party in the Upper East Region.

In the Builsa South Constituency, Daniel Kwame Gariba, the current DCE, won the primaries with 183 votes. His other competitor, Thomas Kwesi Adama, polled 135 votes.

After being declared the winner, Daniel Kwame Gariba said, “Winning an internal election for the second time as a sitting DCE is not an easy task. Due to the nature of my work, people think I have a lot of resources as a DCE and do not want to release them, and this may go against me. I, therefore, count myself lucky for winning the election the second time, and I thank God and the supporters for the mandate.”

But in a quick response, Mr. Ayinbisa, the Communication Director for the party in the Upper East Region, called on the DCE to urgently take actions to get Mr. Adama on his side ahead of the 2024 general election. If this is done, Mr. Ayinbisa believes that the party could win the seat.

“If we look at this and also consider the dynamics of politics in that area, Dr. Apaak would suffer for it. If there is unity, absolute unity in that area, Apaak would lose. I am urging Gariba and all the people who matter in that area, and the council of elders, to step in because Adama is a very keen person to watch. You cannot take that away from him. People didn’t expect Adama to make as much gain as he did. What he got is not a small number. It means that there is a certain constituent that supports him.

The NPP in the Upper East Region conducted primaries in 10 constituencies; Bolgatanga Central, Builsa South, Navrongo, Chiana-Paga, Bongo, Talensi, Nabdam, Zebila, Garu, and Tempane constituencies.

In three constituencies, namely Pusiga, Bolgatanga East, and Builsa North Constituencies, candidates went unopposed.

Elections are currently on hold in the Bawku Central Constituency.
