The Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale South Constituency Haruna Iddrisu has embarked on a voter education aimed at reducing the number of rejected ballots within the constituency.
According to him, it is also a way of ensuring that he secures the 70,000 votes target he has set for himself at the December 7 polls promising to also snatch all polling stations.
The outspoken legislator who has for three consecutive terms proven his superiority over the New Patriotic Party (NPP) since succeeded the seat from the late Alhaji Mustapha Ali Idris, is optimistic the NDC will win the 2016 polls.
Haruna Iddrisu says even though there are challenges facing the economy, youth unemployment and problems with the education system, the President has put in place the requisite measures to address them hence he must be supported.
“We have a duty and responsibility to support President John Dramani Mahama to succeed. There are challenges but we must support him to have a sacred eight years,” he said.
The Minister, who is seeking a fourth term as a legislator, said his works in the nation’s Parliament have been to re-echo their aspirations and wishes for the past 12 years. “I have been a strong advocate and work to reflect your challenges,” he said.
