Ben Ephson must keep predicting my defeat, it works in my favour – Buaben Asamoa

NPP parliamentary candidate for the Adentan constituency, Yaw Buaben Asamoa has asked renowned pollster and Managing Editor of the Daily Dispatch newspaper, Ben Ephson to keep predicting doom for him since it rather works in his favour.

Prior to the ruling party’s primaries across the country, Ben Ephson in an interview predicted doom for the NPP in the upcoming 2020 election if the incumbent MP for Adentan, Buaben Asamoa is retained.

But NPP delegates in the aforementioned constituency who thought otherwise voted massively to maintain Buaben Asamoa to book a ticket for him in the December polls.

Reacting to his victory and Ben Ephson’ s prediction in an exclusive interview with GhanaWeb after EC’s final declaration, June 20, 2020, Buaben Asamoa said; “I feel happy, exuberant…whenever Ben predicts a loss for me I win. So I want him to keep predicting that I’ll lose because that way I’ll win.”

Yaw Buaben Asamoa who had already predicted his victory in the early hours of the day (election day) did not leave disappointed as delegates handed him a massive win.

Out of the 744 valid votes cast, Buaben Asamoa managed to pool 423 with his fierce competitor amassing 217. Zack Rahman also had 87 votes, Alfred Kumi got 10 votes and Freda Sarpong managed to gather only 7 votes. Three votes were rejected.

Yaw Buaben Asamoa joins the likes of Sarah Adwoa Safo, George Andah, Eugene Boakye Antwi, K. T. Hammond, Carlos Ahenkorah to contest their parliamentary seats against their opponents from other political parties in the December polls.
