Over twenty-two incumbent Members of Parliament lost their bid to represent their various constituencies in the December presidential and parliamentary elections as disappointment and surprise marked the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) parliamentary primaries on Saturday. In a major upset, Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Freda Prempeh, was ousted in the Tano North constituency. Challenger Dr. Gideon Boako, Spokesperson for the Vice President and NPP flagbearer, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, cruised to victory with 444 votes against Prempeh’s 221.
It would be recalled that Freda Prempeh added salt to injury of the predicaments of Akosombo Dam Spillage Victims when she said the Victims ignored warning signs from the VRA and NADMO.
Her comments received widespread backlash from Ghanaians with some victims praying for her to lose her Primaries.
To many, the outcome of the primaries is not surprising owing to her despicable comments.

Meanwhile, Dome-Kwabenya witnessed a stunning defeat for Adwoa Safo, the outspoken Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection. Mike Ocquaye Jr., son of former Speaker Mike Ocquaye, secured a convincing win with 1194 votes, leaving Safo with only 328.
The Abuakwa North constituency also saw a change of guard, with incumbent Gifty Twum-Ampofo narrowly losing to Nana Ampaw Addo-Frempong. Popularly known as “Buffalo,” Addo-Frempong garnered 222 votes compared to Twum-Ampofo’s 202.
Beyond these significant upsets, another high-profile casualty was Deputy Minister of Health, Tina Gifty Mensah. In the Weija Gbawe constituency, she was defeated by Jerry Ahmed Shab, who polled 786 votes to Mensah’s 361.
These unexpected defeats sent shockwaves through the NPP, and raised questions about voter sentiment and future party dynamics.
Minister for Public Enterprises, Joseph Cudjoe lost the Effia primary in the Western Region to Isaac Nyarko Boamah, a financial analyst
Sheila Bartels lost the Ablekuma North poll with 637 votes to Akua Afriyie who polled 756.
