Tamale South: No Contender Will Get 2% Against Me – Haruna Iddrisu
When the National Democratic Congress (NDC) organizes parliamentary primaries in May, former minority leader Haruna Iddrisu has encouraged rivals to feel free to submit nominations to challenge him.
The Tamale South Member of Parliament convinced would-be candidates that he would easily win re-election by highlighting his abilities and soaring influence throughout the years.
“The Tamale South seat is free, it is open. When nominations open, you can come in. The only thing I can assure you is that you won’t get more than 5% of the votes or probably 2%. You won’t make more than five percent,” he told Evans Mensah on a Joy News programme.
Since joining the Fourth Parliament in 2008, Haruna has served in the Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, and current Eighth Parliaments.
Over the years, he has also held a number of ministerial positions, including the Ministry of Communications and the Ministry of Employment and Labor Relations.
