Delegates of the Old Tafo constituency flexed their muscle and might at Dr. Loiuse Carol during the NPP Parliamentary primaries held yesterday, voting massively against her.
The woeful numbers the presidential staffer polled could be attributed to a Facebook comment she made last year, likening footsoldiers to tribalists who couldn’t be reasoned with.
Her comment solicited a nationwide outrage by NPP loyalists who felt insulted. The presidency went ahead to suspend her for s month as punishment for her unfortunate comment.
Recently, she was on Citi TV and when quizzed about the same incident, footsoldiers felt she only exacerbated her already precarious relationship with them by trying to deny she ever said that.
Well, the delegates finally had a chance to show how relevant they are to anyone’s political career in the party, and her numbers only points to revenge as a totally written off Vincent Ekow Assafuah emerged with a resounding victory with more than twice the number Dr. Carol polled.
