Alhaji Abubakar Saddique Boniface
The only contender in the race for the Madina
Constituency in the Greater Accra Region on the ticket of the governing New
Patriotic Party (NPP) has pulled out, leaving Alhaji Abubakar Saddique Boniface
to go unopposed for the April 25 primary.
Mr Michael Kofi Mc-Kenzie, Alhaji Boniface’s
contender after picking forms earlier, last Thursday, announced his decision not
to contest any longer. His decision, he said, was because he wanted to enhance
the chances of the NPP retaking the seat.
Speaking to the media, Mr Mc-Kenzie who was a
former constituency chairman said the MP had worked and needed to be supported
to make the victory of the NPP and the President a reality.
My decision was to make the ‘Four More for Nana
Addo to Do More’ and ‘Mission Madina Consolidated’ a reality in the Madina
Constituency, he added.
“I duly apologize to my faithful supporters for
any disappointment caused and also to thank them for their unending support,”
“Alhaji Boniface is an astute politician who I
believe deserves the mandate to represent our noble party once again. I
therefore humbly entreat my supporters to throw their weight behind the
honorable MP so that together we can maintain the Madina Constituency Parliamentary
seat for the party,” he said.
