Former Member of Parliament for Kumbungu constituency in the Northern Region, Ras Mubarak, has suffered a massive defeat in his bid to comeback for the seat in the 2024 general elections.

The incumbent Member of Parliament, Professor Hamza Adam, secured five hundred and thirty-eight (538) votes to beat Mr. Mubarak who polled three hundred and seventy-nine (379) votes.

The other contenders in Saturday’s parliamentary primaries of the opposition National Democratic Congress include: Soalihu Aliyu Malba, 21 votes, Mohammed Abdul Ganiyu Shitu, 5, and Rashid Muhammad 22.

Prior to the May 13 polls, the incumbent MP, Prof Hamza Adam, in a media interview touted achievements in the past two years and boasted his records were unmatched in the constituency.

He added the NDC electorates were privy to what he has done for the development of the constituency compared to what his predecessor (Ras Mubarak) did in his four years in office.

Mr. Mubarak won the Kumbungu seat in the 2016 general elections but lost in the 2019 primaries of the party to then lecturer of the University for Development Studies, Hamza Adam.

Meanwhile, former President John Dramani Mahama was given one hundred percent in the presidential primaries. He obtained all nine hundred and fifty-six votes to beat Kojo Bonsu who had zero.
