Manaf Ibrahim, aspiring parliamentary candidate for the NPP in the Asawase constituency says everything points to a victory for him in the upcoming internal contest.

“I can confidently say this is my time because everything is working for me and i know i will win the upcoming parliamentary contest to lead the NPP to win the Asawase seat in 2024”, Manaf stated.
The aspirant asked members of his campaign team and supporters to be tolerant of the views of others who may not be sympathetic towards his move.
He asked them to tell others why they should vote for him and not to use insults or hate language to push his ambition.
“These internal elections in the NPP is like a household contest and if we see it as such there would be no place to entertain antagonism and division”, the aspirant educated.
He urged the elections committee to work to ensure a clean election so that the NPP would have grounds to tout its democratic credentials.
