Former Executive Director of the National Service Scheme, Dr. Michael Kpessah Whyte’s dream of being a Member of Parliament has been dashed.
He lost again to incumbent MP for Shai Osudoku, Linda Ocloo at the party’s parliamentary primaries on Saturday August 24, 2019.
The widow polled 825 votes while Dr. Whyte who is also a former presidential staffer had 263 votes.
This results is very disappointing as Dr. Whyte was confident of winning the primaries since he believes he is the right person to serve the people of Shai Osudoku.
He first contested Mrs. Ocloo in June 2016 but lost to her in a by-election to choose a parliamentary candidate when Mrs. Ocloo’s husband, Desmond William Ocloo, died in a tragic accident at Juaso in the Ashanti Region in March 2016 shortly after he was elected.
