My defeat was surprising – Okoe Boye


Deputy Minister of Health, Dr. Bernard Okoe Boye, has described as “surprising” his defeat in the December 7 polls.

His re-election bid was quashed by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Ben Ayiku who garnered 55,938 votes against 54,072 votes by Dr Okoe Boye.

According to the outgoing Ledzokuku MP; “I was surprised especially looking at the work the President had done in the constituency; LEKMA roads and so on . . . I refuse to accept that Mahama had more votes because he had outperformed Akufo-Addo”

He insists, “if the constituents were voting based on performance, he would have won but . . . ”

I thank you H.E JAK for the counsel and compliments. The impact of Yesterday’s encounter shall be with me ad infinitum. His grace is sufficient always”.
