The deputy Minister of Trade and Industry Nana Ama Dokua Asiamah-Adjei has attributed her victory in the just ended parliamentary primary on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Okaikwei North to the superior message she sold to the delegates.

Veteran editor of Daily Searchlight newspaper Kenneth Kwabena Agyei Kuranchie polled 27 votes, Prince Owusu Mensah had six votes. The other two Nyarko Stephen Adipa garnered 108 votes while the former MP Fuseini Issah managed 114 votes.

Speaking on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Monday (4 December), Ama Dokua said she will reach out to her competitors to foster unity ahead of the 2024 elections.

“I went to every delegate; I organised meetings and I sold them my message and I think they bought into my message and that is what made me victorious in this election,” she said.

“Every constituency have different dynamics and having studied the dynamics of the Okaikwei North constituency, there were a few things that needed to be addressed.

“Some key issues that I touched on was welfare, equity, ensuring that we support artisans and traders and organise programmes to cater for their healthcare as well as provision of access to government opportunities, these are the message I went out with,” Ama Dokua added.
