JFK poll 2,837 of the total valid votes cast to beat the incumbent John Boadu, who polled 2,524 votes.

Following the ouctome of the elections, New Patriotic Party (NPP) stalwart Kennedy Ohene Agyapong issued a salvo to Chairman Wontumi to stay calm in the face of internal elections.

The Member of Parliament for Assin Central Constituency said it was wrong for him, and 15 other regional chairmen to openly declare support for a candidate.

“The signal is clear to every senior member of the party not to come openly and raise hands,” he said while speaking in an interview with Media General‘s Eric Mawuena Egbeta at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday, July 17.

“The 15 chairmen and the Central Regional Chairman, where are the 16 chairmen? They should be ashamed of themselves because they couldn’t decide for the party.

“My brother Wontumi should cool down. He should cool down [because] he doesn’t own this party. He doesn’t at all. He has to cool down.”

He explained that Chairman Wontumi cajoled the other chairmen to raise hands openly to support some candidates.

“All of them have been embarrassed. If it had been anywhere, all the chairmen would resigned.”
