Member of Parliament for North Tongu constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has announced he is running unopposed in the North Tongu NDC Parliamentary Primaries.

No person picked a form to challenge the incumbent.

Running unopposed for him is “another reason to serve my beloved constituents better, stronger, harder & more innovatively.
“As you very well know, I don't and will never take your support for granted,” he wrote on Facebook 

Ablakwa entered politics at an early age of 28 when he contested the parliamentary elections for the North Tongu seat on the ticket of the NDC in 2008.
