In a recent development, Bice Osei Kuffour, widely known as Obour, has experienced a second defeat in his pursuit of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidacy for the Asante Akyem South constituency.
According to GhOne TV’s report, Asante Boateng emerged as the frontrunner with a commanding 522 votes out of the total 853 ballots cast.
Obour secured the second position with 280 votes, while Eric Amofa trailed with 50 votes.
This marks the second occasion Obour has faced disappointment in his parliamentary ambitions, following his unsuccessful attempt in the 2020 NPP parliamentary elections.
As the dust settles on the party’s primaries held on January 27, 2023, the question lingers about Obour’s next move in his political career, having suffered a significant setback in the parliamentary race.
The NPP primaries, conducted nationwide except in constituencies without sitting MPs or those lost in the 2020 elections, have showcased the dynamic landscape of political competition within the party.
Obour’s journey, while facing setbacks, raises anticipation regarding the future direction he may choose in the aftermath of this latest defeat.
