Nana Oye Lithur has pledged to support Mohammed Adamu Ramadan after he defeated her in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary primary in Adentan.
The former Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, in a statement, said her “ultimate aim is to serve” and has set her sight on helping Mr. Ramadan wrestle Adentan away from the New Patriotic Party.
“I will continue to put my energy, my experience, my voice and all my resources at your disposal. I will spend every hour working for your best interests, for the great NDC and for the Adentan constituency.”
You [Ramadan] have won the battle, it is now time to come together under one umbrella to win the war. My team and I will be at your service when called upon and together we will work to bring the Adentan seat back home to the NDC,” she added in a statement.
Mr. Ramadan, who represented the NDC in the 2016 elections, polled 730 votes to Nana Oye Lithur’s 559 votes in the primary.
Nana Oye Lithur was among the high profile casualties in the primaries alongside a number of incumbent MPs like Joseph Yieleh Chireh.
The defeated aspirant, in her statement, also said she had made peace with the choice of the delegates.
“The underlying principle of democracy is that the people have the ultimate say in who represents them, and for those of us who wish to serve we are presented with one of two options: Now or later. For me the people of Adentan chose later, and yet I’m still grateful to have been considered.”
