Rashid Bawa returns to contest Akan constituency seat for NPP
The former High Commissioner to Nigeria, Alhaji Rashid Bawa, is making a second attempt at returning to the legislature after failing on two occasions.
The former Deputy Education Minister under the John Agyekum Kufuor regime has returned to his native Akan constituency in the Oti Region, to contest once again in the parliamentary primaries on the ticket of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
This will be his third attempt after losing his re-election in 2004 to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
He was elected into Parliament in 2001 as an independent candidate, later joined and worked with the NPP where he served as the Deputy Minister for Education.
He failed to make it at the parliamentary primaries in 2016 when he tried in the Adentan constituency of Accra.
Some delegates in the party in the Akan constituency are happy he is back home to help with his unfinished works.
