“Come 2020, we are taking over the seat from Mr Apaak. He should handover to us. He has failed the people of Builsa South and as Such he has no reason seeking another term”. Hon Gariba stated.
Ahead of the primaries, constituency communications officer, Thomas Achanga told THE HERALD that the practice where the party has been changing parliamentary candidates, negatively affects the party’s parliamentary fortunes.
