Victora Hammah, the recently defeated Kintampo North National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary aspirant, is virtually in tears few days after her ambition got crushed.
Breaking her silence after Saturday’s defeat, she confessed that she felt disappointed about the results of the primaries because she very much wanted to represent her constituents and help alleviate the abject poverty staring at the people in the area.
“There is abject poverty in the constituency and I had hoped to work as MP to improve the living standards of the people.
“But that was not to be as the delegates decided to cast their ballot to another candidate, and I accept defeat”.
Hammah, in a chat with Hello FM in Kumasi, however, attributed her defeat to monetary influence.
She said that she did not pay a Pesewa to influence the delegates because she was a genuine person.
“I presented a positive message of hope and ideally I was hoping they would embrace it but it was not the case”.
Victoria Hammah called for a collective effort to uproot monetary influence from Ghana politics.
“We need to protect our democracy, we should not make politics business”, she lamented.
