Ex-convict and Former Youth and Sports Minister under the Kufuor administration, Mallam Ali Yusif Issah says he’s counting on sympathy votes from delegates to pull through the upcoming National Democratic Congress (NDC’s) primary.
Issah is confident that the injustices meted out to him that saw him incarcerated for four years under the kufuor administration will bring the luck he deserves in the impending contest.
” I am going to win on a sympathy vote; all over, Ghanaians know very well the circumstances that led to my jail-term at the Nsawam prison. I was convicted wrongly and sacrificed. Nonetheless If you’re a convict that doesn’t mean you’re not sane or not intelligent. I have done the background checks and I believe the delegates will vote massively for me,” he told Fiifi Banson on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.3 FM Friday.
Mallam Ali Yusif Issah has picked up form to contest in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary primaries in the Adentan constituency.
