The Parliamentary candidate for the Sawla Tuna Kalba Constituency in the Savannah Region, Banasco Seidu Nuhu may become the next DCE for the area if intel we picked up from the grounds resonate with the leadership at the Jubilee House.
With the 2020 election petition over and the Ministerial vetting almost done, things are gradually taking shape for the Akuffo Addo-Bawumia administration and serious lobbying seems to be gathering steam and the NPP Government is busy selecting representatives at the Local Government level.
It wouldn’t take much to conclude that Banasco Seidu Nuhu stands tall among all the shortlisted names for the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba area, giving the fact that his emergence into the political landscape in the Savannah Region in general and Sawla-Tuna-Kalba in particular.
Although he did not win the just ended parliamentary election for NPP, he was able to garner a lot of support and whipped up enthusiasm in the youth of the area from both the NPP and NDC.
It is worthy to note that this is the first time a candidate from the NPP has garnered over 10, 000 votes in the constituency, inspired a generation of young and vibrant party activists to vigorously campaign and vote for NPP, and should this continue, there would be no gainsaying that Banasco can cause an upset in the parliamentary election for STK in 2024.

He worked as the production manager of the Bambu Centre, Chief Executive Officer of Global Success Minds (An ecommerce platform), and Golden African Star.
