Akufo-Addo’s careless remarks cost the NPP in Assin North – A Plus

Kwame A Plus, a political activist and showbiz figure, has a scathing opinion on president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s most recent appearance at a political gathering.

In a post on Facebook dated June 28, he claimed that Akufo-Addo was to blame for the New Patriotic Party (NPP)’s defeat in the by-election for Assin North, which had taken place the previous day.

Having been removed from office by the Supreme Court, Gyakye Quayson won the election with more than 57% of the valid votes cast.

A Plus claims that if the NPP is genuinely concerned about its potential electoral success, it is time to move Akufo-Addo and his close associates to the Jubilee House.

His message stated: “Quayson is jail bound,” and it featured a video of Akufo-Addo saying as much.

“The NPP’s loss in the Assin North by-election was mostly caused by Nana Akufo Addo’s appearance in the district and his critical statements at the rally.

The Jubilee House must be made a home for Akufo Addo and his close friends if the NPP is sincere about breaking the eight.

“Voters are needed to break the 8-vote barrier, not those who continue to encourage him. Akufo Addo has been unpopular with the majority of the voters you need. Those who say “ten ten Ghana, yie yie” should not be trusted.

Additionally, disregard the advice of individuals like Ben Epson. You’re about to enter an election, not a lottery bingo game.

James Gyakye Quayson received a total of 17,245 votes, which is 57.56% of the total number of votes cast, the Electoral Commission reported.

Charles Opoku of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), who was his closest rival, received 12,630 votes, or 42.15 percent of the vote.

87 votes, or 0.29% of the total, went to Bernice Enyonam Sefenu of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG).

In Assin North, a by-election was held to fill the parliamentary seat that became vacant after a legal dispute regarding Quayson’s eligibility to occupy office due to dual citizenship issues.
