The Deputy General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) Nana Obiri Boahen has pledged to embark on a massive campaign to wrestle the Ejura-Sekyedumase Parliamentary seat from the opposition National Democratic Congress come the 2020 election.
The NPP lost the seat to its bitterest political rivals in the 2016 elections.
The NDC Candidate Muhammed Bwah Braimah who was the Municipal Chief Executive for the area during the erstwhile Mahama administration garnered 23,277 votes to beat then NPP incumbent Member of Parliament Salisu Bamba who secured 21,795 votes.
But speaking to host Henry Lord on Ejura based Naagyei FM, Nana Obiri Boahen stated that the NPP is poised to recapture the Ejura-Sekyeredumase parliamentary seat.
“Whether the NDC likes it or not, the NPP will wrestle the seat from them come 2020 parliamentary election. I’ll be deeply involved in the campaign in that area and that will be the first constituency I’ll organize a rally. The MCE who was our candidate in the 2016 will certainly recapture that seat. We’re poised and will take all the three NDC Parliamentary seats in the Ashanti Region from them.”
Ejuara-Sekyedumase, Asawase and New Edubiase Constituencies have over the years been favourable to the opposition NDC party in Ashanti Region which is considered the stronghold of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
