Contrary to the baseless propaganda being circulated by the NDC, the good people of Kumawu constituency have shown overwhelming support for the NPP in the just ended 2023 by-election. The NDC has yet again been embarrassed and exposed by the facts and figures. Below are undisputed facts of the results from yesterday’s by-election;
- NDC, together with the independent candidate (Kwaku Duah), won 31 polling stations in 2020. However, in yesterday’s by-election, the number of polling stations won in 2020 were reduced to an abysmal 6 polling stations.
The 6 polling stations won by the NDC were already won by the NDC/INDEPENDENT in 2020. Meaning in terms of actual polling stations victory, NDC DID NOT improve.
The NPP for the first time won in several polling stations such as L/A JHS SEKYERE MISSION and L/A JHS ABOTANSO.
In 2020, the vote difference between the NPP and the Independent that placed second was only 3,262 votes. In the just ended by-election, the NPP has floored the NDC (Second place in the By-election) by widening the gap to a whopping 11,541 votes.
NPP got 70.91% of the total valid votes cast in the by-election compared to 51.11% in 2020. That is a huge improvement for the NPP in Kumawu Constituency.
6.- Comparatively, the NDC votes dropped from 5,899 votes (2016) to 3,723 (2023 By-election). Even in 2020, where there were some internal wrangling in the NPP Party in Kumawu, NDC managed to pull a disappointing 2,439 votes. So for anyone to suggest that the NDC has done well is laughable to say the least.
- It is important to note that the 64% voter turnout recorded in yesterday’s by-election is one of the highest turnout recorded in the history of by-elections conducted in Ghana. In fact, the 2002 Kumawu By-elections recorded 45% voter turnout. Out of the voter turnout yesterday, the NPP pulled a massive 70.91% of the total valid votes cast.
Finally, the above facts is a clear indication of the inevitable calamity that will befall the NDC in 2024. The NPP remains poised to Break the 8 and continue to serve the good people of Ghana.
