Hon. Aponkye Heads to Supreme Court


    Failed assemblyman aspirant for the Adukrom Nima Electoral Area in the Ashanti region is set to file a petition at the Supreme Court to challenge the elections.

    Nana Adabor Ibrahim Isaah Ampim, popularly known as Hon. Aponkye, rejected the district Assembly election results for the area alleging fraud.

    The failed Assemblyman, according to provisional results from the Electoral Commission, polled 234 representing 9% of the total votes cast.

    He was beaten by Hon. Abdul Rashid who polled 1,056 representing 40%.

    But, Hon. Aponkye in an interview on Joy News Tuesday said the results collated by his agents showed he won with a one-touch victory.

    Though he failed to show his supposed collated results, he was certain he had been shortchanged.
