Popular entertainment and media entrepreneur, Baba Sadiq Abdulai Abu, has officially marked his journey into politics with the launch of his campaign for the Okaikoi Central parliamentary seat on the ticket of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The 3 Music Network CEO is hoping that NDC delegates will give him the nod on May 13, 2023, to represent the party during the general elections in December 2024.
Despite making the announcement back in August of 2022, the 37-year-old has followed through by filing his nomination on Monday, March 2023, to contest the upcoming parliamentary primaries.
If he gets the nod of the NDC delegates to represent the party in 2024, he will be battling Patrick Yaw Boamah, the incumbent MP for Okaikoi Central for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
