The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, is disappointed that the New Patriotic Party lost some of its parliamentary seats during the 2020 general elections in the Bono East Region.
The NPP failed to win majority parliamentary seats in the region, which was created in the first term of Akufo-Addo’s Presidency.
The party had five seats going into the polls with the NDC having four, but after the elections, the NDC was able to snatch two more seats from the NPP.
Addressing a durbar of chiefs and elders in the Bono East Region at the beginning of his two-day tour on Sunday, August 8, 2021, President Akufo-Addo said the NPP will bounce back in 2024.
According to him, the party will work hard to regain what rightfully belongs to it.
“I am not happy with the Bono East Region in the 2020 polls at all. The NPP had five seats going into the elections but had only three after the elections, and the NDC has six. What can I say? Nothing, but all we have to do is to work hard during the 2024 elections to win more of the seats,” he said.
