Former National Youth Organizer and aspiring parliamentary candidate of the National Democratic Congress(NDC), Sidii Abubakar Musah, has called on delegates of the party parliamentary primaries to rise above negative propaganda and cast their for him to rescue the party from the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

According to him, the Saturday, August 24, primaries is a turning point for the NDC family to decide who can lead the party to victory, hence they must not make the mistake of not electing him.

Sidii made the call during an interview with THE REPUBLIC in Accra on Thursday, August 22, 2019.

The former national youth leader of NDC is in the contest with three other persons including a Human Rights Lawyer, Francis Xavier Sosu, Alhaji Ibrahim Failla Fuseini and Hajia Rukaya.

Among the four aspirants, only Lawyer Sosu has had the opportunity to contest the primaries in 2015 but lost narrowly to then-incumbent Member of parliament, Amadu Bukari Sorogho.

Nonetheless, Sidii said, he appeared more dangerous to the NPP due to his vast political experience, having gone through the grassroots to become a national youth leader.

In addition to that, he said he appeared more appealing to the various stakeholders and grassroots, not only within the NDC fraternity but the entire populace of Madina.

This, he urged the delegates to defy all odds and give him the nod to lead the party in 2020 general elections to recapture power.

Siddii is on the number four on the ballot which he said stood for a leader who can carry the rest of the three contenders on his head.

The bottom position, he added also means is he down to earth for every constituent of Madina and he would be an available, accessible and reliable leader to the people.

Sidii also anchored his campaign on primary Issues affecting Madina, which includes education, youth empowerment with skills training, good roads through lobbying and greening Madina with a periodic tree planting.

He promised to offer a high calibre of leadership in Madina and in parliament when elected.

He added that when elected he would lead a united front, giving the youth and the women the chance to set the space to stamp out poverty.

Sidii, therefore, asked delegates to go to the number four on the ballot paper on Saturday and endorse him to reclaim the Madina seat.
