Immediate past Member of Parliament for Kumbungu Ras Mubarak has indicated to contest for the position of Council of State member representing the Northern Region, a body created under Article 89 of the 1992 Constitution.

According to him Ghana would be better served if young people are part of the democratic process as he has the record of making a positive difference wherever he finds himself, and as Chief Executive Officer of the Youth Authority of Ghana he spearheaded reforms that resulted in the Authority moving from an underfunded agency to one of the most well resourced.

He touted his record in the Seventh Parliament, adding he asked most questions, made most statements, and made valuable contributions on the floor of the House.

“If delegates elect me on Friday, February 12, 2021 it would be the greatest honour in a life time,   more importantly offer me a special opportunity to offer advice on behalf of the people of the northern region to the President of the Republic on matters of state. This, I intend to discharge to the best of my ability”.

He further noted that, throughout his journey in politics and public life, he put the national interest over and above self or partisan consideration, the kind of quality required of a member of the distinguished body of advisors to the President of the Republic.

Again, I offer to the region and nation my youthfulness, dynamism, action oriented nature, accessibility, good listening skills which I have acquired over many years of practice as a broadcast journalist.

“I would listen to the voices of the chiefs, opinion leaders and people of the region, and would at all times make their well-being the Centre-piece of my attention at the Council, so help me God”.
