The Deputy Director General of the National Sports Authority and a former Aspiring Parliamentary Candidate for the Yendi Constituency, Mr. Majeed Bawah, has endorsed the candidature of Alhaji Farouk Aliu Mahama for Yendi.
In a statement widely circulated in the media, Mr. Majeed Bawah, who in 2005 contested the National Youth Organiser position of the NPP but was beaten by Mr. John Boadu, gave reasons for declaring open support for the Candidature of Alhaji Farouk.
He noted that Farouk Aliu Mahama has consolidated the support base of the party in the Yendi Constituency since he joined the race and should he be voted for by the delegates, he would continue his massive development-oriented programmes alongside the consolidation drive of the NPP in the Yendi Constituency.
Aside consolidating the party, Mr. Majeed Bawah also explained that Alhaji Farouk Aliu Mahama has done extremely well in reconnecting the people of Yendi to the NPP once again and he sees it as a very positive move.
The former Aspiring Parliamentary Candidate for Yendi in 2008 also disclosed that Farouk Aliu Mahama was the only candidate amongst the other Aspiring Parliamentary Candidates who can reach out and attract extra votes from non NPP members for the party.
Mr. Majeed Bawah, who describes himself as a critical stakeholder in the local politics of Yendi, has therefore appealed to the delegates in the impending Parliamentary primaries of Yendi to vote massively for Farouk Aliu Mahama.
This endorsement by Majeed Bawah has been described by Team Farouk as a very important endorsement for which they are both grateful and humbled.
