On Monday, December 7th, as I went round the various polling stations, I looked straight in the eyes of voters, and I saw the enthusiasm to exercise their civic rights.
I take satisfaction in the fact that we all gave our very best to the defining gathering of a peaceful election for our generation! The atmosphere of peace in the constituency is once again a demonstration of my commitment to peaceful elections. For the second time in the history of Tamale Central Constituency, we had a peaceful election.
Our party was hopeful that the constituency would choose a path of development, and rather feels disappointed at the outcome. The Tamale Central people have spoken, and we respect the democratic system.
To all party faithful, friends, family, colleagues, and many volunteers who came forward to assist with the campaign, I say a big thank you! Many of you spent precious time and resources contributing to the campaign, and I sincerely thank each of you.
I am deeply moved by the expression of confidence from all eighteen electoral areas, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
To the elected candidate: Ibrahim Mutala Mohammed, I say Congratulations! To the other candidate, Abdul-Karim Mubarik from PNC, I thank you for participating in the democratic process.
May Allah bless us all.
