Speaking on Citi TV‘s Face to Face program, Mr. Dumelo dismissed suggestions that the seat is a safe haven for the NPP.
Despite the fact that the NPP has won the seat since election 2000, Mr. Dumelo explained that his party over the years have significantly closed the vote gap, adding that unlike areas like Bantama, Ejisu and Mampong, his constituency is far from being described as a safe seat for the NPP.
“I disagree with people saying that it [Ayawaso West Wuogon] is traditionally NPP. We won in 1992 and 1996 but we have come close to winning it, especially in 2012. In 2004 and 2008 we came close to winning it.”
“This is not like some Bantama seat, or a Mampong or an Ejisu seat that we know to be traditionally NPP. The Ayawaso West Wuogon is a seat we are going to win. I am not going to win it, it is the NDC that is going to win it,” he said.
When asked about the percentage margin he expects to win the seat with, Mr. Dumelo replied and said “a margin of 54”.
