Former President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice Osei Kuffour well known as Obour has said that he is not afraid of delegates for they won’t disappoint him in his constituency.
However, in the 2020 New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary primaries, Obour lost the seat to his opponent Kwaku Asante Boateng in a close contest.
Speaking in an interview on GBC Radio Central, when asked whether he still stands by his comments that he doesn’t fear delegates, he said;
“If I’m given another chance I will still maintain my stance that I don’t fear delegates. It’s true that working with delegates is tedious but my Asante Akyem South delegates were honest and diligent towards me.”
“Because the election was contested by some aspirants who have been in the race for at least twice before I emerged. So judging from that I shouldn’t have been second in the race. But due to the promises I had from the delegates to vote for me indeed they honoured their promise to me.”
“Over 700 people voted in the election and I got almost 300 votes and besides some of my delegates were even suspended before the election.”
“However, it was something small that prevented me from winning if not our conversation today would have been different. So as for me I really think that my delegates have been faithful with me.”
