The four who are contesting for the party’s top post in the region are; Alhaji Gofred-Apasinaba Wumbei, Alhaji Ibrahim Mobila, Alhaji Asumah Musah and Mr Moses Bukari Mabengba.
Alhaji Asumah Musah used the occasion to call on all Muslim members especially those sympathising with the NDC to use the solemn occasion to pray for the nation and unity in the party to win the 2020 general elections.
