N/R: All 9 NPP MPs back Regional Chairman for 2nd term – Aliu Mahama's son
All the nine MPs on the ticket of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Northern Region have endorsed the current Regional Chairman Mohammed Bantima Samba for a second term, Yendi MP Farouk Aliu Mahama has said.
The son of late Vice-President Aliu Mahama made the revelation on Tamale-based Diamond FM while talking about getting a winnable team in 2024.
"All the nine MPs in Northern Region are solidly behind Regional Chairman Samba for a second term", Mr Mahama said on Tuesday, January 4.
The nine MPs include Hassan Tampuli (Gushegu) who is also a deputy minister of Transport and Dr Amin Adam Anta (Karaga), who is also a deputy minister of energy.
The rest are Alhaji Habib Iddris (Tolon), Ayaba Aziz (Mion), Hardi Tuferu (Nantong) and John Jabar (Zabzugu).
If re-elected, Samba will go down in history as the first Northern Regional Chairman of the MP to have retained the position for a second term.
