Son of former Vice President Alhaji Aliu Mahama, Farouk Aliu Mahama, who is also the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for the Yendi Constituency, has said the people of Dagbon will now begin to see a lot of development projects following the installation of the new Ya-Na.
“Dagbon is now peaceful and there is going to be a lot of development,” he said on the show Wednesday, August 19.
Speaking on the impact of his father on his life and his political career, to be precise, Farouk Mahama said: “I’m a total beneficiary of my father”.
According to him, his father trained a lot of people in the political space and they are honouring his legacy.
“A lot of students like Haruna Iddrisu, Mustapha Hamid, and Dr Majeed all went through the hands of Dr Aliu Mahama.”
According to him, he has done well for his father to be proud of him.
“The Farouk Aliu Mahama of today isn’t the Farouk Aliu Mahama of yesterday. People should learn from the fact that they must value where they come from.”
