Dr. Oko Boye, MP for Ledzokuku has conceded defeat in the 2020 Parliamentary elections and has congratulated his rival, Ben Ayiku of the NDC.
The Doctor who was hoping to retain his seat in the constituency lost by 1,866 votes, making Ben Ayiku the winner in the constituency.
With some MPs challenging the results from their constituencies after losing, it’s very humbling to see the honourable Doctor conceding defeat and also stating that, we can all build this country with or without a political office.
His post on Facebook read:
I am grateful to my constituents for the opportunity to serve them in the past four years. Congratulations to Ben Ayiku, the Ledzokuku MP elect.In all things we give him thanks. Let’s build this country together with or without political office for it is our efforts now that will create the Ghana we desire for our children and children’s children.
I thank you all for the well wishes
His defeat is however not shocking as that constituency, Ledzokuku is known for not retaining their MPs as they vote for a different party after every 4 years.
Some comments on Social media have suggested that Dr. Oko Boye lost because of his implantation of strict Covid 19 rules in the constituency during the time, the voters there, mainly GAs were celebrating the Homowo.
His post received heart-warm comments after he conceded defeat.
