Mike Ocquaye Junior after attempting the contest on two occasions has now managed to secure 1,194 votes and Sheila Oppong polled 186 votes. Sarah Adwoa Safo has come under severe criticisms and have been embroiled in many controversies prior to the primaries.
Prior to the primaries, Executive Director of Global Info Analytics, Mussa Dankwah has said incumbent MP for Dome-Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo has no chance in the ongoing New Patriotic Party‘s Primaries.
He added that Adwoa Safo will lose her seat even if additional votes are given to her.
“The poll numbers are not in her favour and the odds are against her. Mike Ocquaye Jnr is going to win the primaries this afternoon. It should be very clear on what has happened in the constituency in the past and the TikTok issues. People have not forgiven her and that’s how bad delegates think she’s done to the NPP and on that note my MP will not go back to Parliament,” Mr. Dankwah said.
