Musician cum politician, Bice Osei Kufour, popularly known as Obour, has finally explained his defeat in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary primaries.
Obour started celebrations when counting began as he was in a comfortable lead but he ended up losing. Obour managed 296 votes while Kwaku Asante Boateng, the incumbent MP, won with 364 votes.
According to him, he would have won had the party not suspended ‘some of his delegates’. Obour stated that the incumbent MP beat him with 64 votes which indicates that he did very well considering it was his first time.
“To me, that is a win and victory because this is my first time in the contest. Some of my delegates were suspended and if they were allowed to vote, hopefully, there would be a different story”, he said.
“Okyeame Kwame came to Juaso and after the election, he said ‘bro you have won’. I knew I won, because, I was into this election and was fighting against an incumbent MP who is slightly more experienced.
“He has the support of the constituency executives, the support of the MCE and all the factors fighting against us but still, he only beat us with 64 votes”, he added.
