Half-Assini (W/R), Nov. 16, GNA – Mr George William Somiah, one of the six candidates contesting the Jomoro NDC Parliamentary primaries scheduled for November 21 has withdrawn his candidature from the race.
The constituency Secretary of the Party, Mr James B. Benson, made this known in an interview with the Ghana News Agency at Half Assini on Sunday.
According to him, Mr Somiah submitted his withdrawal letter to the Party Office on Friday November 13, 2015.
