A Communications Specialist, Mr. Francis Atayure Abirigo on Wednesday 22nd March 2023 filed his nomination form to contest the Chiana-Paga Constituency Parliamentary Primaries of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

He gave assurance to the delegates and party executives that he intends to adopt an open-door leadership where he will take decisions with the constituents about every development project in a consultative manner.

Mr. Abirigo who was addressing the NDC members at the constituency party office in Paga after filing said his modus operandi was, first of all, to put smiles on the faces of the vulnerable in society such as widows, physically challenged, the elderly, and orphans amongst others who he said deserve to be happy too.

"I am not coming to lord myself over you, as an orphan myself I know how difficult it is for a single mother to raise children and I want to assure those my mothers, wives, and sisters that if I am voted I shall ensure that their children are in school and their welfare will be seriously taken care of," he assured.

He further stated that the NDC party in Chiana-Paga is saddled with petty squabbles among members and he intends to resolve that feud for peaceful coexistence where respect for the elderly, the youth, and women will be the order of the day.

Francis Atayure Abirigo who is a former local GRASAG President at the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ), holds a master's degree in Development Communications, a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, an LLB, and diplomas in journalism and marketing with extensive on-the-job local and international training.

He has practised Journalism, PR, and Corporate Communication since 2000 with several media houses, and the National Health Insurance Scheme. He is currently a Senior Communications Specialist at Zoomlion Ghana Limited.

The 49 years old Francis Atayure Abirigo is married with four children and is contesting the incumbent Member of Parliament, Hon Thomas Dalu Addah a retired worker of WAEC and former District Chief Executive.
