South Dayi Member of Parliament Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor has said he was shocked that Dr Kofi Konadu Apraku had zero in the just-ended super delegates conference of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

“I’m so shocked that Hon. Dr. Konadu Apraku got zero. These were the people who told the great JJ Rawlings that he wasn’t fit to rule Ghana,” he tweeted.

Dr Kofi Konadu Apraku who is Former Minister of Regional Cooperation and NEPAD failed to amass any votes in the Super Delegates Conference of the NPP.

He was seeking to be one of the five flagbearer aspirants to make the cut for the November 4 Presidential Primaries.

Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia polled more than 60 percent of the valid votes to come tops.

All other aspirants got at least one vote except the former Offinso North Member of Parliament (MP), Dr Apraku.

Among those who failed to make it to the next round are Kwadwo Nsafoah Poku, Joe Ghartey, Kwabena Agyei Agyepong and one of Boakye Kyeremanteng Agyarko and Francis Addai-Nimoh.

The two polled nine votes to tie at Number 5 and, per the party’s regulations, will go into a run-off on Saturday, September 2.
