The National Chairman of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Bernard Mornah, believes his path to Parliament may be easier now that the incumbent and Ghana’s longest-serving Member of Parliament, Alban S.K. Bagbin will not be seeking re-election.

Mr. Mornah said Mr.Bagbin’s exit will “create even a fairer and an even playing field for all those who want to contest to represent the constituency.”

He has declared his intention to contest the Nadowli-Kaleo Parliamentary seat in the Upper West Region for the second time.

He notably increased the PNC’s parliamentary votes in the constituency from 196 in 2012 to 5,393 in 2016.

Speaking to Citi News, he said he had a “burning desire” to serve his people.

“This is the opportune moment I have been looking for to tell the people once again that I am the best man for the constituency.”

Mr. Bagbin who is currently Ghana’s second Deputy Speaker of Parliament has been occupying the Nadowli-Kaleo parliamentary seat since 1992.

The PNC is yet to open nominations for its aspirants.
