Savelugu : prepare to handover our seat to me – NPP PC, Hajia Fathaia tells MP

The NPP newly elected parliamentary candidate for the Savelugu constituency, Hajia Fatahia Abdul Aziz has sent message to the MP for the area who won on the ticket of NDC, Abdulai Jacob Wunbenkpang, reminding him to handover the seat come December 7, 2024.

Speaking to journalists after her declaration yesterday, the NPP PC believed the delegates made the right decision by electing her to lead, assuring the entire party in the constituency that she won’t disappoint them come December 7 next year.

Hajia Fatahia used the opportunity to extend a hand of friendship to her immediate contender who doubles as the for MP for Savelugu, Alhaji Samed Gunu that she will need him to win the seat for the NPP, calling on every NPP supporter rally behind her to give NDC a showdown.

“Not only NPP or my team, but the endorsement I have gotten indicates that the entire Savelugu have shown they are ready to have me as their MP. Let assure everyone that I am going to fulfill all the promises I made to them before this contest. I won’t disappoint them”, Hajia Fatahia told the media.

She went into the contest against the former MP who won the seat for the NPP for the first time in 2016 since it was created in 1992, defeating him by a very wide margin.

At the end of the polls yesterday, December 2, the victor had 532 to beat Mr. Samed Gunu who managed to poll 121 with 3 ballots rejected.

Mr. Gunu won the seat in 2016 from the NDC when a member of the party broke away to go independent, taking a huge chunk of the NDC supporters along that led to the NDC winning presidential, but losing the parliamentary votes to the NPP.

The NDC retrieved the Savelugu seat in 2020 general elections with a little margin of 79 votes, when the incumbent, Mr. Jacob Wunbenkpang represented the party, which the NPP’s Hajia Fatahia has promised to take back in 2024.
