The Member of Parliament for Anyaa-Sowutuom, Dr. Dickson Adomako Kissi, has conceded his defeat to Elder Emmanuel Tobbin, citing his endorsement of the widely supported ‘Ken must go’ campaign as a potential factor.
Dr. Adomako, who had been a vocal advocate for the removal of Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta in light of the country’s economic challenges, lost his seat in the just ended NPP primaries, with a vote tally of 818 to 566 in favor of his opponent.
Speaking exclusively to Eyewitness News during an interview with Umaru Sanda Amadu on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, Dr. Adomako expressed his belief that his support for the ‘Ken must go’ campaign may have played a role in his defeat. While acknowledging the presence of multiple factors contributing to his loss, he highlighted his dissenting stance as a potential contributor.
“I think that there were many factors. One that comes to mind is you know having a dissenting mind. What I mean by that is there have been several cases that I had with a dissenting mind and I think that it may have contributed.
“For instance, I am one of the few who stood initially, for Ken must go’. I wouldn’t say that is the one key reason but I think it may have contributed”, he stated.
He also acknowledged that his support for the Alan Kyeremanten movement could have played a role in his failure to secure the candidacy for representing the people of Anyaa-Sowutuom in the upcoming December polls.
