Member of Parliament for Buem Constituency, Kofi Adams has said he is not perturbed by the Attorney-General’s proposal for the 2020 Parliamentary Elections of the Buem Constituency to be annulled.

Speaking on The Pulse on Thursday, Kofi Adams noted that the NDC is comfortably placed in the Buem Constituency, hence he is confident the party would win if fresh elections are held.

“Buem is a constituency the NDC has never lost before. Right from 1992 we have won it comfortably…so I am in a very comfortable position when it comes to winning,” he said.

According to him, his worry rather is why the government is interested in reducing the districts in Oti Region when it has introduced new Regions to expand the frontiers of local governance.

“The fact that a government would even sit and think about a proposal, that let’s go and annul L.I. 24(16) and therefore Guan District would cease to exist, meaning that Oti Region would be reduced by one district is my worry.

The Legislator said the proposal by the Attorney-General is not workable.

Godfred Dame while addressing Members of Parliament on Wednesday suggested to the House that one surest way of getting parliamentary representation for Santrokofi, Akpafu, Likpe and Lolobi (SALL) residents is to annul the 2020 parliamentary elections of Buem.

The A-G believes this will offer an opportunity for SALL residents to be captured under the said area.

“The solution is not just the annulment or revocation of the L.I but it must be coupled with the annulment of the Buem Parliamentary Elections,” he said.

SALL residents have complained that the Electoral Commission’s failure to allow them to vote in the 2020 Parliamentary Elections amounted to a breach of their rights.

According to them, the creation of the Oti Region coupled with a recent Supreme Court decision and failure of the EC to create a constituency for them has deprived them of representation and development.

Mr. Dame faulted Parliament for the delay in creating a constituency.

He explained that the A-G at the time “advised the Electoral Commission (EC) that having regard to the limited timeframe for the passage of the proposed C.I to amend C.I. 128, it was not advisable for it to be laid before Parliament.”

He wants the Parliament to bear full responsibility because “if the House had annulled the L.I 2416 that created the Guan District, we wouldn’t have found ourselves in this situation.”
