AU Farouk who is known for his contributions to political shows across the country is said to have collapsed at the University of Ghana where most delegates were lodging for the Congress.

The Member of Parliament for Tamale North, Alhassan Suhuyini speaking to Citi News said the body of AU Farouk has been flown to the Northern Region for burial.

According to Suhuyini, the delegate died of a suspected heart attack on Friday shortly after he arrived in Accra.
Delegates of the opposition National Democratic Congress will today, Saturday, December 17, 2022, gather at the Accra sports stadium to elect national executives for the party.

About 9,000 delegates are expected to be deployed from the party’s various constituencies to partake in the voting process.

The keenly contested national chairmanship position will be between the incumbent Chair, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, the incumbent General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, a former Member of Parliament, Nii Armah Ashiety, and Samuel Yaw Adusei.

The two frontrunners, Mr. Asiedu Nketiah and Mr. Ofosu Ampofo have equally expressed confidence in winning the enviable chairmanship position after working tirelessly for the party.
