Ace Radio Presenter, Gilbert Aggrey, known as Abeiku Santana is set to contest the parliamentary primary on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

He will be vying for the Mfantseman West seat in the Central Region.

Abeiku Santana who played a major role in the 2012 campaign for the NDC according to sources is in talks with some executives of the NDC before he takes a final decision.

But Central Regional Chairman of the NDC, Bernard Allotey Jacobs has confirmed on Peace FM's  Kokrokoo Morning Show that the host of Ekwanso Dwodwoo on Okay Fm will run for the Mfantseman West seat when nomination opens.

Allotey Jacobs said "it is true that Abeiku Santana will contest the NDC primary for the Mfantseman West seat."

In a follow-up phone interview with Abeiku Santana, he admitted that what the party's Central Regional Chair put out is "indeed true", but quickly added he is yet to officially make a statement to that effect.

The seat is currently held by Central Regional Minister, Acquinas Tawiah-Quansah and will face a stiff challenge he declares his intention to contest the seat.
