Pro-New Patriotic Party (NPP) group, Patriotic Youth of Ashanti have discredited some media publication projecting Effiduase Asokore Constituency as a leading constituency in the Ashanti region that gave the NPP’s Flag bearer Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia the highest votes in the party’s 4th November 2023 presidential primary.
Per the party’s nominal ranking released by the Ashanti regional communication directorate, the Ejisu Constituency with 1,055 votes cast, 899 went for the Vice President representing 85.5%, while the Effiduase Asokore constituency also voted 449 out of 564 delegates placing 27th on regional constituency ranking table.
According to the group inasmuch as the party appreciates the contribution of the constituency in the election of Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia it is fair the due credit if given to the Ejisu Constituency delegates for the massive support they gave to the Vice President.
“It is unfortunate for the media to project a wrong constituency for placing first on the NPP’s regional ranking in our Presidential primary. The media must respect the work of the Ejisu delegates. The agenda setting project is a poor work done by several media houses’’ Patriotic Youth of Ashanti stated in a statement.
