The National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) parliamentary candidate for the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency, John Dumelo has dismissed reports claiming he is losing the seat to the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Lydia Alhassan.
A number of people have already taken to social media, declaring defeat for the NDC’s parliamentary candidate.
But Dumelo in a Citi News interview, at the Ayawaso West Wuogon collation centre, said internal projections suggest that he is winning the seat.
“We have done well, and at the end of the day, the one with the highest majority will win. It is looking good for us, both parliamentary and presidential per our internal checks. I think and I know and also hope that we come out victorious.”
“But of course, we will have to wait until the collation is over and the EC finally declares,” he added.
Mr. Dumelo earlier raised red flags over the absence of indelible inks at the GIMPA polling Station 1 in the constituency when he earlier went to cast his ballot but the EC dispute the claim.
Despite the fact that the NPP has won the parliamentary seat since several times, Mr. Dumelo is determined to snatch the seat this time around.
