Obour – PRESS STATEMENT ON PARLIAMENTARY PRIMARIES
I sincerely want to thank the almighty God for seeing me and my team through a very vigorous campaign. I also want to thank my team and supporters for a great job done. For months we were in the trenches together working hard as always in our bid to unseat a two term member of parliament.
Let me take this opportunity to also congratulate the winner of the fiercely contested election Hon. Lawyer Kwaku Asante Boateng for a great contest. I want to say to him that it is time to roll our sleeves and hit the ground running to consolidate our gains in the 2020 General Elections with the NDC and I fully assure him of my support to ensure that we secure a further 10,000 plus votes for His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo in the 2020 elections.
Although I didn’t win, I sincerely believe the contest has really energized the base of our great party the New Patriotic Party in Asante Akyem South and lubricated its machinery for the bigger battle with our known opponents the National Democratic Congress for election 2020.
Political watchers and activists will be the first to concede that this election for the seat of the Asante Akyem South Constituency remains the most fiercely contested one in the history of the constituency
I take the opportunity to also thank all delegates for their love and support, both those who voted for me and those who did not vote for me. For the general constituency populace the love was overwhelming. Even in defeat you sang my praise and the cheers deafening.
All I can say for now is that a great political future awaits our constituency and our political Party.
I congratulate all winners in the elections nationwide and to those who lost. Losing is bitter but it gets sweeter when you know it is for the collective good our great party
Lastly I really want to thank the leadership of the New Patriotic Party at both the constituency, regional and National levels for the opportunity to represent my constituency. I shall be back in a grand style.
God bless the New Patriotic Family and continue to bond us together in love. Ghana needs us to continue with the visionary works of our great leader Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo. Kukrudu! Kukruduuuuuu!! Kukruduuuuu!!
