A former Deputy Minister of Communication, Mr Felix Kwakye Ofosu, has been re-elected to represent the main opposition National Democratic Congress as the parliamentary candidate in the Abura Asebu-Kwamankese constituency in the 2024 general elections.

At the end of the Saturday, 13 May 2023 presidential and parliamentary primaries of the biggest opposition party, former President John Mahama's aide polled 830 votes against his contender, Professor Nana Ama Browne Klutse's 571 votes.

This would be Mr Kwakye Ofosu's second attempt at entering parliament on the ticket of the NDC.

He won the primary in 2019 but lost the race in the 2020 general polls to the incumbent. Mr Elvis Morris Donkor. 

“It was so close yet so far for me”, the former Deputy Minister of Communication posted on his Facebook page after the 2020 polls.

“I lost by 176 votes”, he said. 

“Congratulations Elvis Morris Donkor and better luck to me next time”, he added. 

After his first unsuccessful try, Mr Kwakye Ofosu expressed gratitude to all those who backed his ambition.   

“I am also deeply grateful to all of you out there who supported my bid in diverse ways”, he said.
