The newly-elected parliamentary candidate for Damongo Constituency in the Savannah Region, Samuel Abu Jinapor, has been advised to forget about snatching the Damongo constituency seat.
According to the Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Peter Boamah Otokunor, his chances of winning the Damongo seat is very thin, therefore, there is no way he could come close to the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP).
“Abu Jinapor should forget about the seat. He doesn’t come close to the NDC MP in terms of so many things and so he should stop dreaming because he won’t win that seat,” he told Accra based Neat FM, monitored by Adomonline.com.
One of the parliamentary seats in the newly created Savannah Region that will be hotly contested for in the 2020 general election is the Damongo Constituency, which is also the administrative capital of the Savannah Region.
The contest for that parliamentary seat will be between the opposition NDC and the ruling New Patriotic Party.
Mr Jinapor, after winning the just ended parliamentary primary, would face the opposition NDC’s Adam Mutawaliku, who holds the seat presently.
Mr Mutawaliku has held the seat since 2013, surviving the 2016 general election by a little over 2,000 votes.
But, Mr Otokunor, describing the winners of the just ended parliamentary aspirants as ‘sub- standard’ candidates, said the NDC is unfazed and confident of retaining most of the seats in the region.
