The Municipal Chief Executives for Wa and Jirapa, Issahaku Moomin Tahiru and Christine Bamanye Amadu as well as the District Chief Executives for Wa West and Nadowli-Kaleo, Edward Laabiir Sabo and Katherine Lankon all lost in the election that was touted as most peaceful.
Their colleague in the Daffiama-Busie-Issah District, Imoro Nadi Sanda however won with 130 votes, beating his closest contender, Felix Naa with 94 votes.
Issahaku who lost in his third parliamentary bid to a new entrant,Hajia Umu Awudu, speaking after the election said though he felt sad about the lost, he respected the decision of the delegates, saying “they elected me on two occasions so if they feel the mantle should be given to another person, so be it”.
