Employment and Labour Relations Minister, Haruna Iddrisu has filed his nomination to contest as the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary Candidate for the Tamale South Constituency of the Northern Region.
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.
He disclosed that he has started an operation dubbed “win all polling stations and give JM 70,000 “and will ensure that this becomes a success considering what he has over the period done for constituents.
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.
This, he believes is work in progress and appealed to the people to support his re-election bid so that he would continue fighting their cause.
