Mr. Godknows Bleboo, one of the three aspirants in the New Patriotic Party's (NPP) Parliamentary Primaries for Keta Constituency, has pledged unwavering loyalty to the party despite his loss in the Saturday elections.
In an interview with the Ghana News Agency on Monday, Bleboo graciously congratulated his contender, Mr. Courage Goldberg-Grimm Lekettey, who emerged victorious in the primaries.
Acknowledging the internal nature of the contest, Bleboo emphasized the need for party members to unite and support Mr. Lekettey with innovative ideas to bring positive change to Keta.
He expressed a broader vision, stating, “…we must all rally behind my brother Courage with our beautiful ideas to change Keta and Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia to break the eight next year.”
Bleboo, a long-time party loyalist and the Municipal Director for the National Disaster Management Organisation, reassured his commitment to the NPP.
“I have been with this party since 1994 and served with loyalty; therefore, I will not leave this party on any day because I lost a contest,” he declared.
Reflecting on the results, a delegate and supporter of Bleboo emphasized respect for the democratic process, stating, “The delegates have spoken, and we must respect their choice. Our next target is to unseat the NDC in Keta.”
During the primaries, Mr. Courage Hope Goldberg-Grimm Lekettey secured victory with 288 votes, surpassing his opponents, Mr. Godwin Selassie Teyie with 252 votes and Mr. Godknows Bleboo with 57 votes.
Lekettey is now set to represent the NPP in the parliamentary race against the incumbent National Democratic Congress's Mr. Kwame Dzudzorli Gakpey on December 7, 2024.
