Richard Ahiagbah, the Director of Communications of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), has expressed confidence that the party will secure more than 90% of the votes in the upcoming Kumawu by-elections.
During an interview on Eyewitness News on Citi FM, Mr Ahiagbah attributed the NPP's anticipated success to the significant development projects undertaken in the constituency.
He stated, “I can tell you with all certainty that if a vote is cast on Tuesday, the NPP will get not less than 90 per cent of the total vote cast.”
Addressing concerns about the ongoing road construction projects in the area being perceived as vote-buying tactics, Mr Ahiagbah clarified that the government had initiated the processes for the projects before the unfortunate passing of the late Philip Basoah, the former Kumawu lawmaker.
“These processes had been put in place and everything was supposed to start in March, but it was left with contractor selection and other related issues, and eventually, the people selected a contractor, so it was a question of timing and the unfortunate incident of our brother, Basoah, happened just before this whole thing started,” he explained.
The NPP has already chosen Ernest Yaw Anim as its candidate for the by-election, which is scheduled to take place on May 23, 2023.
