Armiyawu Abdul-Rahim
The incumbent Member of Parliament for Madina Constituency, Hon Amadu Sorogo would have to sweat it out with the former National Democratic Congress (NDC) constituency chairman of Madina electoral area, Armiyawu Abdul-Rahim in the forthcoming NDC primaries to retain his parliamentary seat.

During an outreach programme organized recently in Madina West, Tatana area, Social Welfare La Nkwantana area and Adenta West all in the Madina Constituency, Armiyawu Abdul-Rahim stressed that a new wind for change was blowing across the constituency and it was clear that the electorates would endorse him as the embodiment of that change to represent them in parliament in 2016.

He said though, other contestants, Mr. Xavier Sosu, Baba Ibrahim and the incumbent Member of Parliament Amadu Sorogo would put up stiff competition for the Madina seat, he was confident he would beat them.

Abdul-Rahim indicated that his vision for the area was to tackle youth unemployment which he would do by harnessing the President’s Youth In Agriculture policy in three sites in the constituency, specifically Pantang, Oyarifa and Teiman. He said the project when implemented would engage 1,500 youth in the constituency.

‘The project would lay emphasis on agriculture mechanization and high -skill and intensive programme in poultry farming,’ the aspirant stressed adding that he would seek the collaboration of companies, organizations and departments like the DIZENGOF Company of Ghana and the Crop Science Department of University of Ghana to support the programme.

Touching on security, Armiyawu Abdul-Rahim said he has already donated building materials worth GHC 3,000 for the development of the community police station at Teiman.
