Parliamentary Candidates for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), the National Democratic Congress (NDC), and the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) were visibly missing when the Sagnarigu Municipal Directorate of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), organised debate session for Parliamentary Candidates (PCs) in the Tamale North Constituency as part of activities to promote democratic governance in the country.

Mr Abdallah Muazu, Convention Peoples’ Party (CPP) Parliamentary Candidate was the only candidate present at the event.

However, NPP’s Alhassan Dahamani, NDC’s Alhassan Saying Suhuyini and the PPP’s Mohammed Abdul-Nasir failed to honour the invitation even though they were duly informed.

The debate, supported by the European Union (EU), was to provide platform for parliamentary aspirants to deliberate on development issues of concern in the constituency, while outlining their plans to tackle them, when voted into Parliament.

Mr Abdulai Soale, the Sagnarigu Municipal Director of the NCCE, said the session was also to afford constituents the opportunity to scrutinize development plans of the aspirants so that electorate could make informed decisions at the polls.

The CPP parliamentary aspirant promised to ensure equitable distribution of resources and development projects across communities in the constituency.

He again promised to improve on the quality of education in the area, and roll out business development policies to enhance the economic status of the people if given the mandate to represent them in Parliament.
He, therefore, appealed to the people to vote massively for him come December 7, to effectively represent them in Parliament.

Alhaji Abdul-Razak Saani, Northern Regional Director of NCCE, said the dialogue with the parliamentary candidates and the citizenry was part of their mandate to increase awareness and sensitise electorates to enable them make well informed choices in the upcoming elections.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
