Former Member of Parliament (MP) for La Dadekotopon, Nii Amasah Namoale who was the chief campaign manager for failed opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential hopeful, Professor Joshua Alabi has said he is still in shock with the humiliating defeat that has been dealt his boss.
According to him, he finds it difficult to believe that the learned professor and former Vice Chancellor of the University for Professional Studies has lost the contest in such a humiliating manner.
Mr. Namoale opined that there was every indication that the Alabi team had really worked and pricked the conscience of the NDC delegates and were very sure of a resounding victory, a much anticipated victory that has eluded them.
Professor Alabi only managed to secure a paltry 3,398 votes or 1.516 percent of the total votes cast to place 2nd to former president John Dramani Mahama who won massively with a landslide, securing 213, 410 votes or 95.24 percent of the total votes in the February 23 2019 NDC presidential primaries, to lead the biggest opposition party in the country into the 2020 elections.
The second deputy Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin emerging third with 2,312 votes or 1.031 percent of the total votes.
Mr. Goosie Tanoh placed fourth with 2,036 votes or 0.908 percent of the total votes cast, with Dr. Ekwow Spio Garbrah, Sylvester Mensah and Nurideen Iddrisu placing fifth, sixth and seventh respectively.
They have all called to congratulate the former president and assure him of their support going into the 2020 elections.
