The Member of Parliament for Yendi, Farouk Mahama, has taken the initiative to embark on a “Reconciliation and Thank You Tour” within his constituency after being confirmed as the New Patriotic Party’s parliamentary candidate for the upcoming elections.

The main objective of this tour is to bring unity among party members and aspirants who competed for the parliamentary candidacy. Starting on Monday, April 15, Farouk Mahama engaged with party supporters and community leaders in Yendi during his tour.

During the tour, Farouk Mahama emphasized his dedication to collaborating with all party members to secure victory in the December 7 general elections, with a specific focus on retaining the party’s seat in Yendi.

In a press release issued on Wednesday, April 10, Farouk Mahama expressed his gratitude to the party leadership, President Akufo-Addo, and Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia for their guidance in resolving issues arising from the parliamentary primary held on January 27.

The NPP officially declared Farouk Aliu Mahama as its parliamentary candidate for the constituency after a primary contest between him and Hajia Abibata Shanni Mahama Zakariah, the CEO of MASLOC.

Following the declaration, Hajia Abibata Shanni Mahama raised concerns and lodged a petition with the party’s leadership, alleging election irregularities and calling for the annulment of the results due to disruptions during the counting process and accusations of favoritism among party officials.

Farouk Mahama’s efforts towards reconciliation and unity within the NPP in Yendi are crucial as the party prepares for the upcoming elections.
