The Bongo Constituency New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary candidate for just ended December 7, elections who doubles as the Bongo District Chief Executive(DCE) Ayinbisa Peter has told Ngamegbulam Chidozie Stephen of Apexnewsgh.com in an exclusive interview that the National Democratic Congress party bigwigs succeeded by squeezing his hands by him and took his victory away.
“I think, I set out to win the elections for the first time to make history for my party in that constituency. I think right from 2019 when we finished the primaries, I started campaigning, I used almost 6 months effectively campaigning day and night and everything was on course and I was securing victory for myself and for the party, until the last 2weeks when something strange happened and what happened was that the Member of Parliament upon realizing that he was at the verge of losing the seat, went and met former President John Dramani Mahama and asked him to invite all former appointees coming from the Bongo enclave to come home and support him. Indeed, they met in Accra and he kneeled down and pleaded with them to come and support him. So, all of them, about 2weeks to the election they came home, about 10 prominent former appointees of the past government came home to campaign for him.” He spoke
“So, imagine how former Ministers, former chief director, former chairmen, former Parliamentary candidate, ranging from Professor Avea, Hon. Albert Abongo, Lawyer Bawah Dua, Simon Alangde, Alexis Adugdoo, Dr. Atinga, Dr. Rainer Akumperigya, Mr, Aluzeeri and Thomas, Accountant, Ghana Maritime Authority coming home extending resources in every community. Wherever I went and gave Ghc 500.00, Profession Thomas Akabzaa went and gave Ghc1000, Ghc1200 and Ghc1500 not that they came home only with the resources, they came and started intimidating the young men and women, they started insulting and inviting them to their houses telling them they are not fighting for Edward Bawa, they are fighting for the party. So, all of them should team up and work for their party. So definitely, some of them admitted that if I get the seat, it will take the NDC so many years to come back because they know am a developmental oriented person, they know my human relation, so, it will be difficult for them to come back.” He stated
“So, is better they fight the horse and when they get home, they can blame the cork (instead of fighting themselves outside). So, they quizzed my hands by me and took the victory away from me.” He lamented
“But I am not perturbed, I am going to do my work again, I am going to organize a meeting and do some introspection and find out what the real issues were.” He told Ngamegbulam Chidozie Stephen of Apexnewsgh.com
Meanwhile Edward Bawa won the Bongo Parliamentary constituency by polling 26, 276 votes, as Peter Ayinbisa of the New Patriotic Party manage 17,276 votes.
