The Member of Parliament for the Adentan Constituency, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, has lost his seat to the opposition National Democratic Congress.
The New Patriotic Party’s MP lost to the NDC’s Mohammed Adamu Ramadan.
This adds up to the number of seats grabbed by the NDC in this year’s Parliamentary and Presidential elections.
Meanwhile, former President John Mahama has said the results trickling in from all parts of the country from Monday’s polls are “very good”.
The party at a press conference has claimed it has reversed some 36 parliamentary seats.
Addressing the media in the early hours of Tuesday, December 8, 2020, the party’s Director of Elections, Mr Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, said: “Preliminary results trickling in show a very exciting outlook but our victory is not complete until the last ballot is counted and collated”.
“Starting from Greater Accra, we’ve flipped Krowor. Flipped means this is a seat that was won by the NPP in 2016 and we’ve gotten [it]. So, we’ve flipped Krowor, we’ve flipped Ledzokuku, we’ve flipped La Dadekotopon, we’ve flipped Tema East, we’ve flipped Adentan, we’ve flipped Madina, we’ve flipped Ablekuma Central and then we’ve flipped Okaikwei North. This is Greater Accra, so, so far, 18 and counting. I’m focusing on the flipped ones”.
