The Savannah Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party Alhaji Sulemana Iddrisu a.k.a Proff Kalamonia has served a warning to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) that, his Party (NPP) is ready to wrestle majority votes in the Presidential elections in 2024 in the Region even though the likely NDC candidate former President John Dramani Mahama is from the Region.
He said the NPP in the last election (2020) made a great impact by winning three seats in the region, but the votes of the presidential was a problem for the party.
