Per our checks, he is the most accessible Member of Parliament in the history of the Constituency.

We in the Tamale North Constituency are not ungrateful constituents but objective and rational and for that matter, we will celebrate and motivate our hero (Hon. Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini) whiles he is still alive and that is exactly what we are doing.
