Sulemana Saeed has emerged victorious as the New Patriotic Party Parliamentary candidate for the Karaga Constituency in the Northern Region Saturday.

Saeed secured 208 votes ahead of Baba Wahab, a former District Chief Executive, who pulled 168 votes and Basha Firdaus with 28 votes.

The election of the Saeed followed the resignation of Shaharawi Bashiru on health grounds.

On Saturday, November 8, 2015, Bashiru narrowly escaped death when the V8 vehicle he and two other persons were travelling in, spurt a front tyre and rammed into a tree killing the two other individuals instantly on the Kumasi-Kintampo Highway.

Mr Bashiru is said to have been advised to resign to enable him fully recover from the fatal accident he had.

The re-election was supervised and conducted by the Electoral Commission, and witnessed by the NPP’s first Vice Chairman F. F Anto and the party’s Nasara Coordinator, Kamaldeen Abdullah.

In his victory speech, Saeed thanked the delegates for electing him, promising to wrestle the seat from the National Democratic Congress.

He also called for unity among the party supporters ahead of the December vote.
