- The MP for Tamale South, Haruna Iddrisu, has stated that he intends to contest for his seat during the 2020 polls
- He added that he will easily defeat anyone who dares to challenge him in the elections
- According to him, he is optimistic the constituents will once again choose him to represent them in parliament
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale South and minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu, has declared his intent to stand for re-election as MP.
According to him, he is ready to dish out “a befitting humiliating defeat” to any competitor daring to challenge his fifth bid.
Speaking at Tangni, one of the 56 in the Tamale South constituencies, Iddrisu said he trusts the constituents to choose him again to win the seat for the NDC.
Iddrisu added that he will continue to serve his people with humility and integrity, and therefore appealed to the constituents to renew his mandate after thanking them for previous opportunities.
“Therefore come 2020, I will run formally as Member of Parliament candidate for the Tamale South constituency.
I want to use this opportunity to profoundly thank the people of Tamale South; they remain a tower of strength to me and unwavering support.
I’m sure any candidate within the NDC and without the NDC into the New Patriotic Party can only await a humiliating defeat if they want to run for the seat,” he added.
He further explained that his decision to comment on his political future was timely, as it will dispel widespread conflicting rumours about his next political ambitions.
Iddrisu went on to say that it will also ultimately put to rest the offstage discussions about being the potential favourite candidate for the running mate position of his party, going into the 2020 elections
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that president Akufo-Addo, when delivering his maiden state of the nation address, expressed optimism about Iddrisu, saying he has a bright political future ahead of him.
