Samia Nkrumah, the only daughter of Ghana’s first President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah has failed in her attempt to recapture the Jomoro seat in Western Region.
Earlier, Samia lost the seat on the ticket of the Convention People’s Party in 2012. She struggled to become the flag-bearer of the party but lost the primaries to Mr Ivor Greenstreet.
Then, she decided to run for parliament again in this year’s elections but lost to the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Paul Essien.
Mr Essien polled 11, 694 to collapse incumbent, Leo Kofi Armah Amenlamah who contested in Wednesday’s parliamentary polls as an independent candidate after losing the ruling NDC’s parliamentary primary.
Ms Nkrumah polled 9,714 out of total 48,440 cast votes. Mr Amenlamah polled 1,645 while Thomas Elleamo Yankey who contested on the NDC’s ticket, polled 14, 241.
Mathieu Kwao Bentho of the Progressive People Party’s (PPP) polled 2,613 while the People’s National Convention (PNC) Jemaima Soboe polled 334 votes. Stephen Awuah of the United Front Party (UFP) attained 101 votes. 1, 098 rejected votes also recorded in the constituency.
