PHOTOS: Okoe-Boye returns to consulting room after election defeat

Defeated Member of Parliament, Bernard Okoe-Boye has returned to the consulting room as a medical practitioner after he hit a snag with re-election to parliamentary.

At least 28 incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP) legislators lost their parliamentary seats in last Monday’s elections.

Ghanaians are intrigued by the dynamics that may have played into the defeat of Ledzokuku MP, Dr Benard Okoe Boye, among other MPs.

But Okoe-Boye in a post on Facebook said it’s time to spring back to practicing medicine and intensifying community service.
He recounted the mixed reaction that greeted him at the Lekma hospital in his first post-election consultations.
“First post-election Monday consultations at the Lekma Hospital. Some staff were happy to see me doing fine, some surprised at my activity having assumed that not winning the Parliamentary election meant away with community service. It is important to understand that the joy a true Leader experiences does not lie in the position he holds but in the Service his people receive. I thank God that you do not have to necessarily hold a position to assist others experience a better world. Because He lives, we can face tomorrow.” he said.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary Candidate Benjamin Ayiku Narteh beat the NPP’s Okoe Boye by a margin of 1,866 votes in the parliamentary elections.

In total, at least 108 out of the 275 members of the 7th Parliament will not return to the House in the 8th Parliament
