The man popularly known as Honourable Aponkye suffered a disastrous loss in Tuesday's assembly elections.
Hon Aponkye: I’m heading to Supreme Court to challenge election result
Nana Adabor Ibrahim Issah Ampim says he is heading to court after losing in his bid to become Assembly Member for the Adukrom Nima Electoral Area in the Ashanti region.
Speaking to the media after the declaration of the results, Hon Aponkye said he feels cheated by the Electoral Commission (EC).
He further stated that he will head to the Supreme Court to challenge the result of the election.
“We have polling agents all over the polling stations. The results they gave us [indicated we were winning], then the EC comes to declare that we didn’t win. We will go to the Supreme Court,” he told Joy News.
Hon Aponkye became an internet sensation after making some lofty campaign promises in the build up to the elections.
He is on record to have said that all residents in his assembly will be entitled to free breakfast every day should he win.
He added that it is the fundamental human right of the people enshrined in the constitution to be given breakfast every morning.
Hon. Aponkye also promised to provide every household in his assembly with a biogas toilet.
However, he secured just 9% of the total votes cast following the declaration of the results by the Electoral Commission.
