Dr Gideon Boako - Aide to Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia

Newly-elected New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for Tano North, Dr Gideon Boako says he would have lost the election if he had resorted to propaganda.

The spokesperson to the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has said his victory has taught him the need for politicians to resort to clean campaign.

“I would have lost the elections if it was about propaganda because each day came with its own challenges and the people who I was campaigning to advised me not to respond that was why I stayed away from media engagements during the period.

“I engaged in one of the most decent campaigns devoid of name calling or insult and this show that delegates are discerning and know they look out for,” he said on Accra-based Peace FM.

Dr Boako polled 444 votes as against 221 gathered by the Sanitation Minister, Freda Prempeh on Saturday, January 27, 2024.

Madam Prempeh had absolute trust in delegates retaining her based on her works in the constituency.

Reacting to the outcome, Dr Boako described it as overwhelming and expressed appreciation to the constituents for believing in him.

“It is my first attempt and they have honoured me. The votes and the margin was an overwhelming endorsement. I appreciate the people for the support and repose of confidence,” he added.
