electronic media to enhance public relations to support the Party’s goals and
“I told the delegates that I saw myself as the
most suitable candidate to occupy the position because of the past and
continuous meritorious contribution and services to the development of the
Party,” he said.

the 2016 elections at the Odododiodioo Constituency, Chairman of the Campaign
Committee, trainer of trainers of polling agents, and worked consistently at
the grassroots since 1993-2016.
Mr Osman assured the delegates of his
readiness to work with the executive in the 34 constituencies to reach out to
the people to regain lost seats from the New Patriotic Party in the 2020
“I will ensure that all bottlenecks impeding
effective communication in the Region are removed to allow more people to join
