Hundreds of members of the NDC in the Damongo constituency converged to show their support for Alhaji Mohammed Muniru Limuna.
As the governing NDC's parliamentary primaries edge closer and closer, candidates have began to step up their strategies to woo the votes of voters.
Northern Regional Chairman of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Awudu Sofo Azorka has called on supporters of the party to avoid divisive comments that can affect the party's quest to retain power in 2016. He said the NDC is poised to retain power in 2016 based on the work President John Mahama has done on fulfilling the manifesto promises of the party.
The Regional chairman made the call when he joined a group calling itself Friends of Alhaji Muniru (FOAM) to outdoor the Northern regional minister's parliamentary bid in Damongo in the West Gonja District. Chief Sofo Azorka said Alhaji Mohammed Muniru Limuna's leadership as northern regional minister has brought unity to the NDC and the region in general.
Hundreds of members of the NDC in the Damongo constituency converged to show their support for Alhaji Mohammed Muniru Limuna who will be facing competition from the incumbent member of Parliament for the area, Adam Mutawakilu.
They believe the Northern Regional Minister is the obvious choice for the party in the constituency. Earlier in the year, the incumbent Damongo legislator accused Alhaji Muniru of violating the party's constitution by campaigning at a time the window of campaigns had not been opened and called on the leadership of the NDC to sanction him.
President of FOAM, Abubakari Yahuza said the Damongo constituents are yearning for Alhaji Mohammed Muniru Limuna as their next MP. He said FOAM will work to ensure that the dream of the constituents become a reality.
The Northern Regional minister accepted the call by the group to contest for the constituency primaries and called on the group to be truthful and wage a campaign that will keep the party united in the constituency.
