He was among 34 aspirants who were cleared by the party to contest in the parliamentary primaries in all the nine constituencies of the Upper West region.

Other incumbent MPs who lost in Saturday polls include Ras Mubarak in the Kumbungu Constituency and  Emmanuel Nii Okai of the Amasaman Constituency.
