Hon Aponkye who took to the streets to jubilate after results of one polling station had been announced, believed the elections were rigged in favour of the winner and will contest them at the highest court of the land.
Speaking after the declaration, the aspirant told press men that he was at a loss as to why he never emerged victorious despite provisional results that put him in a comfortable lead.
“I will go to the Supreme Court because I do not understand why I never won the elections. I suspect the polls were rigged”, he said.
The winner, Hon Abdul Rashid obtained 1056 votes, followed by Hon Maxwell, who received 770 votes. Hon. Iddrisu came third with 486 while the loquacious Aponkye came last with his 234 votes.
