Upper East Regional Minister fails to win the Navrongo Central seat

The New Patriotic Party Parliamentary candidate for Navrongo Central Constituency in the Upper East Region, Miss Tangoba Abayage has conceded defeat in the parliamentary poll.

Miss Abayage in a Facebook post said she was proud that she had given her opponents a close race although the Electoral Commission is yet to declare the official results of the General Election.

She posted: "Unfortunately I lost to the men! 😩 But I raise my chest boldly out! 😊😊💃🏽💃🏽 Never has there been this fight in Navrongo before. Navrongo wins at the end of it all. No dusting of body; just polishing of shoes and dancing off into the future! #GodDeyWeDey! 👏🏽👏🏽🙏🏽"


Miss Abayage, the current Upper East Regional Minister and the opposition NDC's, Mr Sampson Tangombu Chiragia, a.k.a., ‘STC’, a tax auditor are the frontrunners of the two-horse race
