Nana Oye lost to Samira
Bawumia’s brother, Mr Adamu Ramadan in the Adentan constituency of
the Greater Accra Region where she was hoping to win and represent the NDC in
the 2020 election.
She was however humbled
after polling 558 votes as against the winner who polled 730 votes making him
the ultimate winner.
The Gender activist
promised to call and congratulate Mr Adamu Ramadan but said she is at
sea as to why she never won though was the obvious choice for delegates.
“I feel strengthened, I
didn’t expect to lose. We covered all the tracks and carried a very strong
campaign. The delegates have spoken and I congratulate Mr Ramadan. Democracy
has won”. She disclosed.
On his part, the winner
observed that his victory was a recognition and hard work over the years.
“I would like to thank God
almighty, I would like to thank the constituency executives, I want to thank
the election directorate and my campaign team members. I also want to thank my
opponent for a very good fight”, he said.
According to him, once the primary is over it is time for the party to come together and wrestle the seat from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) adding that work starts.
