Despite the New Patriotic Party’s landslide victory in the just-ended by-election in Kumawu, government spokesperson, Eric Amoako Twum has called for introspection within the party to secure their ultimate goal of breaking the eight in the 2024 general elections.
In a moment meant to be full of excitement following the massive win for the party, Mr. Amoako Twum suggests that more groundwork needs to be done.
Making his submission on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana show on Wednesday, 24th May 2023, he reckoned also the turnout of voters which he placed on record as quite encouraging when juxtaposed to the previous by-elections.
“Then, there is the issue of the turnout. So, I had time to go back and look at some of the elections that have happened in the past. In most cases with these by-elections, some of the turnouts are quite low. When you look at this particular turnout, it is quite encouraging when you do a comparison with previous elections.”
Eric Amoako Twum attributed the low turnout to circumstances out of the reach of the party and also perceived the outcome because it was not a general election.
Meanwhile, Mr. Amoako Twum has reiterated his stance on winning the 2024 elections, adding that the NPP is clear in its determination to win unabatedly.
He also observed the margin with which the NPP won and concluded that it was a signal that they were on the road to victory.
He, however, commended the leadership of the Ghana Police Service for ensuring a peaceful by-election in Kumawu.
