The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Talensi, Thomas Duanab Wuni Pearson, is focused on developing his district. This is after he missed out on the opportunity to serve as a parliamentary candidate for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Talensi constituency.

Mr. Wuni Pearson, on his third attempt to lead the party to the general election, lost to Robert Alibo.

Speaking to Mark Smith on the Day Break Upper East today, Tuesday, January 30, 2024, Mr. Alibo explained that immediately after the election, he turned his full attention towards developing the district.

“I have been working hard, keeping to myself, and just thinking of a new direction of how to move my district forward. Not much has changed. It is just that during the campaign period, I had too many people trooping into my place, so it disrupted my official work. But now, I don’t have that.”

Mr. Wuni Pearson insisted that he was “very good” and that the election results had not adversely affected him.

The DCE also said, “I understand life. I have no disappointment. It is a contest; you win or you lose. You open up for either, and the one that comes to you, you take it, deal with it, and move forward.

When asked what led to his loss even after having so much confidence of winning the primaries, Mr. Wuni Pearson said, “What happened is what happened. We needed to trade faces, and it happened that way.”

The DCE explained that the elected PC has his full support as the NPP hopes to win the Talensi seat for a second time.

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Talensi constituency elected Robert Ayinenaba Alibo as the party’s parliamentary candidate for the upcoming 2024 general election. Mr. Alibo contested against the current District Chief Executive (DCE), Thomas Duanab Wuni Pearson, and the Deputy Chief Executive Officer for the Northern Development Authority, Williams Zoogah.

At the end of the election, Robert Alibo emerged as the winner with 235 votes, while Thomas Duanab Wuni garnered 196 votes, and the Deputy CEO of NDA, Mr. Zoogah, managed to secure 82 votes.

In his victory speech, Mr. Alibo expressed his belief that his competence, credibility, and the truth he conveyed to all the delegates instilled trust in him, leading to his resounding victory.

“I want to give tribute to the many young men and women of our party who saw hope in Alibo and established themselves in it to bring Alibo this far; they deserve praises. This time around, we basically packaged a message. A message of truth, and you know truth lasts longer; truth stands, and if you counter truth with lies, lies get discovered in no time.”
