Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has empathised with some of his colleagues Members of Parliament who lost in Saturday’s primaries.
Describing their losses as a “tsunami” on his Twitter page, Mr Ablakwa lamented the lack of observance for Covid-19 safety protocols at the NPP Primaries held on Saturday, June 20, 2020.

Quite a tsunami for incumbent MPs
While empathizing with colleagues in the House, what does this say about the internal assessment by NPP delegates about the ruling party’s performance in their respective constituencies? Another validation of the 14% scorecard?
Also, COVID-19 protocols could have been better respected. It shouldn’t be made to appear that ruling party activists have a different set of rules from everybody else.
Looking forward to an uplifting parliamentary campaign of ideas.
