The three times winner of the North Tongu Constituency Parliamentary seat Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has inaugurated a research committee to investigate his inability to secure a total of 97% valid votes target in the December 2020 Parliamentary election.
Mr. Ablakwa has said, even though it has now been established that the North Tongu Constituency Parliamentary victory margin of 89.71% for the National Democratic Congress is nationally the biggest for the 2020 elections, he is not too excited for his inability to hit 97% intended target in the December 2020 general elections.
The former Deputy Minister of Education who is currently the Minority Ranking Member of Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee noted that he is exceedingly grateful to his beloved constituents for the collective achievement for winning the Parliamentary election. That notwithstanding, he and his team are honest to admit that they still fell short of their intended target of 97% vote margin.
“We have therefore commissioned research on how we can reach out to the about 10% and better understand their expectations as we hope to secure their support in the forward march of North Tongu.” He disclosed.
“We respect everyone’s decision, value every constituents concerns and will continue to ensure that we work together in unwavering unity to develop our dear constituency.” He said.
Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa won the North Tongu Parliamentary Seat with a total valid votes of 39,294 representing 89.71% against his immediate contender Richard Collins Arku of New Patriotic Party who obtained a total valid votes of 4,086 representing 9.21% while the Ghana Union Movement (GUM) Parliamentary candidate obtained a valid votes of 442 that represent 1.08%.
