2020: Tamale North NDC ‘MP’ joins NPP race


A former Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale North Constituency, Alhassan Dahamani is among 29 aspirants vying for parliamentary slots on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in orphan constituencies in the Northern Region.

Alhassan Dahamani prior to the 2012 general elections aspired as a parliamentary candidate on the ticket of the then governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) but was disqualified ahead of the constituency primary over unknown reasons.

Subsequently, he entered the race as an independent candidate and beat the incumbent Alhaji Abukari Sumani, who had served the people for the past 12 years.

He lost the seat in 2016 to broadcast journalist, Alhaji Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini who is now the MP for Tamale North and is seeking reelection after going through the parliamentary vetting of the NDC.
