Kumawu: Dafeamekpor apologizes for questioning the loyalty of NDC executives

Estimated read time 2 min read

Following the conclusion of the Kumawu yesterday which saw the NPP candidate Mr Ernest Yaw Anim retain the seat for the party, some NDC members are raising questions. The NPP candidate had 15,264 to defeat the NDC’s Kwesi Amankwah who had 3,723 votes. The two independent candidates; Kwaku Duah (1) had 2,478 and the other had 62 votes.

After the close of polls and the declaration of results, the MP for South Dayi in the Volta Region, Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor made some observations based on the results. He said that though the NDC has nine branch executives, some of the polling stations saw the NDC garner less than the number with others producing three and some four votes.

And based on that observation he said the party needs to re-audit itself ahead of the general elections in 2024.

However, hours after that post he made a U-turn and apologized for the statement. He said the figures were not right and were indeed more than the nine he said were the minimum the party can get at each place. The lawmaker nonetheless said the numbers were too low for the efforts the party had kept in towards this election.

“This is to confirm that at Kumawu we didn’t record 3 or 4 votes as I earlier on indicated. I apologize for that but the figures were still too low in places as compared to the great effort that went in. It means we must all work extra hard as Executives & PCs if we’re to win 2024.”

The NDC will prepare itself for the next by-election in the country which is the Assin North parliamentary vacated by Gyakye Quayson whose election and swearing-in was invalidated by a Cape Coast High Court and the Supreme Court. Mr Gyakye Quayson will represent the party in that election as the party hopes to maintain its numbers in parliament.
