A Survey conductedÂ by DAILYÂ GUIDE during lastÂ Saturdayâ€™s presidential Â primary of the New PatrioticÂ Party (NPP) in theÂ Central Region revealedÂ that there were no agentsÂ to represent FrancisÂ Addai-Nimoh, one of theÂ presidential hopefuls ofÂ the party, in most of theÂ constituencies.
DAILY GUIDE canÂ state that Mr. Addai-Â Nimoh had agents in onlyÂ three out of the 23 constituenciesÂ in the region.
Some of the constituenciesÂ are, Komenda-Edina-Â Eguafo-Abrem (KEEA),Â Twifo-Ati-Morkwa,Â Hemang-Lower-Denkyira,Â Assin North, Assin Central,Â Assin South, CapeÂ Coast North and South,Â Mfantseman, and Abura-Â Asebu-Kwamankese,Â The scene was patheticÂ during the counting of theÂ ballots when the ElectoralÂ Commission (EC) officialsÂ demanded that agents ofÂ the three aspirants shouldÂ come round the table.
DAILY GUIDE can furtherÂ disclose that nobodyÂ showed up as agent forÂ Mr. Addai-Nimoh â€“ a situationÂ which compelledÂ people to speak all kindsÂ of negative things aboutÂ him.
According to the delegates,Â he did not even goÂ to the region to campaignÂ and that might haveÂ accounted for his havingÂ no polling agent in theÂ area.
Although Addai-Â Nimoh did not haveÂ agents in most of the areas,Â he managed to getÂ between one to sevenÂ votes in the constituencies,Â except in about three constituenciesÂ where heÂ scored zero.
Nana Akufo-AddoÂ scored 96.38% â€“ an increaseÂ of the mark scored in theÂ special delegatesâ€™ congressÂ held on August 31, 2014.
The elections, whichÂ were supervised by theÂ various district andÂ municipal police commands,Â recorded no casualities.
There was total jubilationÂ in the Cape CoastÂ Metropolis as supportersÂ of the party trooped intoÂ the party office amidstÂ drumming and dancing, toÂ party songs and brassÂ band music.
