Fisherman beats former gov’t appointees to win NDC primary in Sekondi

The Sekondi Chief fisherman, Charles Hagan, popularly referred to as Panya has caused a massive upset in the Sekondi National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary primary after he beat off competition from two former government appointees to emerge winner.

Panya polled 244 votes against a former Deputy Western Regional Minister, Betty Busumtwi-Sam’s 175 votes and a former Mayor of Sekondi-Takoradi, Charlotte Odum’s 163 votes.

 

The aspirants had been accused by his opponents as being illiterate but his supporters are unperturbed.

The supporters who are confident he will go ahead to win the seat in the general elections told Citi Newsthat language barrier would not be an issue in Parliament as he could speak Fante.
