Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for the Tempane Constituency
in the Upper East Region, David Adakurugu has passed on.
He died in Tamale in the Northern Region at about 12am on Friday after a short illness.
Confirming the incident, Iddrisu Atamde, NDC Chairman for the Tempane Constituency, said the unfortunate demise of their parliamentary candidate is a big blow to the party saying, “It’s true that he has passed on, he lives in Accra and I’m also in the Tempane constituency, I called him on Wednesday to discuss some issues with him and he promised to be around on Thursday.
I called his
phone line several times yesterday but to no avail, it was late in the evening
that I was told that, on his way to the constituency, he complained of stomach
pains and he was rushed to a private hospital at Tamale for treatment but he
passed on later,” he said.
“It’s very shocking news, it is a big blow to the party, I call on the rank and file of the party to exercise patience as the party will consider the next line of action after the burial.
David Adakurugu was also a former Member of Parliament for the Tempane constituency.
Last month, a similar incident happened at Ashaiman in the Greater Accra Region where a parliamentary aspirant for the Ashaiman Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, Emmanuel Max-Voy died mysteriously. -citinewsroom.com
