The former Member of Parliament (MP) for Nabdam constituency Boniface Gambila has revealed, that he not been able to pay a dowry for couples, not been able to sponsor wedding ceremonies and, not been able to attend funerals frequently, made him lost the parliamentary race to NDC Mark Kurt Nawaane in the just ended December 7, 2020, Parliamentary elections.
Mr. Gambila who spoke to Ngamegbulam Chidozie Stephen of Apexnewsgh.com in an exclusive interview said people’s perception about politicians in the Nabdam Constituency is immeasurable and very surprising.
According to Mr. Gambila, many factors contributed to him losing the election after putting up what he described as ‘massive efforts’ to enable him to secure victory at the just ended December 7, 2020, parliamentary elections.
However, he pointed one of the reasons that caused him to lose the seat as a result of people’s demand and massive requests on him, which he wasn’t able to accomplish due to lack of resources and some other unforeseen inconvenience.
“People go to marry and say that you should come and dowry for them, people are going to do wedding and they say you should sponsor the wedding meanwhile, he is the one who is going to sleep with the wife. That is a fact, somebody will refuse to vote for you because you didn’t attend his wedding when you were not even near him, he won’t vote for you because you didn’t attend his child adoring and that means that you don’t like him, he won’t vote you because he is doing a Salah, and you didn’t give him a ram and sugar, meanwhile his fasting, is between him and his God oo, but he will conclude that because I didn’t give him sugar and milk for Salah that means, I don’t like him.That’s a ground fact. You have a funeral but because I couldn’t come, that means I hate you and you won’t vote for me.”He told Apexnewsgh.com
However, Dr. Nawaane of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) won the seat with 10, 842 of the total valid votes cast to beat his competitor, Boniface Gambila of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) who only manage to pull 7, 924 from his people.
