An aspirant in the just-ended New Patriotic Occasion (NPP) Parliamentary primaries at Assin North constituency has gone back for all the bicycles he donated to delegates soon after an embarrassing defeat.
Eric Amankwa Blay had shared 250 bicycles to delegates prior to the election to each and every of the polling stations in the constituency.
Even though he campaigned vigorously throughout the length and breadth of the constituency, his effectiveness was incredibly abysmal when the remaining final results have been introduced on Saturday.
He secured 44 votes as against the incumbent MP Abena Duruwa Mensah who polled 389 votes.
Certainly unhappy, the benefits designed Mr Blay and his supporters stormed into various homes of delegates across the constituency to retrieve the bicycles shared among social gathering users to solid the ballots in his favour.
The defeated aspirant who spoke to Adom News’ Alfred Amoh claimed the motive powering the distribution of the bicycles was for marketing campaign uses.
He mentioned for that issue, failure to endorse his candidature implies you do not like the bicycle.
According to him, the device price of the bicycle is ¢300. Aside from the bicycles, Mr Blay promises to have shared ¢200 and ¢500 to each individual delegate and constituency executives to endorse his candidature but unsuccessful to do so.
“I’m not conversing again the dollars but as for the bicycles, I want them back,” he explained.
Some get together delegates and polling station executives who have their bicycles taken again stated they ended up really unhappy.
Reacting to the concern, the Assin North Constituency NPP secretary, Emmanuel Asamoah explained the social gathering leadership will fulfill Mr Blay to address the concern.
