Majority Leader, Alban Sumani Kingsford Bagbin's bid for seventh consecutive terrm in Parliament looks to be under threat from the National Chairman of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Bernard Ambataayela Mornah, who is gearing up to unseat him.

The 58-year-old incumbent NDC MP for Nadowli/Kaleo who has been in Parliament since 1992 has the distinction of being the only parliamentarian in the Fourth Republic to have served both as a Minority and Majority Leader.

But Mr Mornah has promised to end his re-election, noting that his time as MP would witness massive infrastructural development for the people of Nadowli/Kaleo, deploring the neglect of the constituency by successive governments.

“My motivation to vie for Parliament is motivated by a desire to serve. I am optimistic my political legacy puts me in a better light to topple the age- long hold of the National Democratic Congress in the Constituency,” he said, according to Graphic Online.

Mr Mornah also said he was confident the constituency had shown enough enthusiasm about his candidature to grant him that victory over Mr Bagbin.

He described himself as the messiah to rescue the Nadowli-Kaleo Constituency from the shackles of the incumbent MP, who, Mr Mornah claims, has outlived his usefulness in the area. says it has gathered that Mr Mornah has stepped up his campaign to ensure that the majority leader is unseated.
