Oko Boye Was A Serious Advocate For His Constituency But They Voted Against Him - NAPO Fumes

The Member of Parliament for the Manhyia constituency has said that the loss of some MPs in the NPP came to him as a shock. Accessing to Mattew Opoku Prempeh, he believed those MPs had worked hard to deserve a go-ahead. However, political affiliations and propaganda has taken the finest MPs from the next parliament. 

The minister of education has said that, although he won his constituency hands down, and did not take the chances, he can assure that those members of parliament were rejected by the people in their constituency was rather unfortunate.

He made a classical example of the Ledzekuku constituency where the deputy minister for health, Dr. Oko Boye is the MP. According to NAPO, the news of his defeat came as a shock as he had with esses how he (Oko) had fought for his constituency. 

The NPP this year has taken a bitter drink so far as the 2020 parliamentary elections are concerned. Currently, the party that had 169 seats out of 285 seats now has been beaten to the core with a little of 137 seats.

A deficiency of 32 seats. So any reason accounted for it but, in an interview on Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV,  said that people should not be taken for granted. As well, electorates should not always seek to change MPs without valid reasons.

He explained "Free politics is vocal and individual. So you can never pinpoint what made me win and translate it to another constituency that made a similar Mp like me lose. One of the finest gentlemen in Ghana’s last parliament was the Ledzekuku MP, Doctor Oko Boye. He's one of the serious advocates for his constituency. I was in the meeting when he talked about the Lekma road in his constituency. They voted for a party that for eight years did not do the Lekma Road

”Similarly, there were parts of Manhyia I could not go and knock on the doors till they started doing the road. So when they started doing the road the people were so happy and started cooking food for the constructors
