The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has for the first time lost in Upper West Denkyira Parliamentary seat in the 2020 General elections.

According to grapevine source, the defeat is as a result of the revocation of the appointment of Dr. Baffour Awuah.

Dr Baffour Awuah, a former medical practitioner at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, a consultant radiation oncologist and former head of oncology directorate before he became medical director at KATH was so closed to become the Chief Executive Officer but he was shot in the foot by His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo-leaving the constituents peeved.

Dr. Baffour Awuah confirmed in 2019 that government canceled its decision to appoint him as the new Director-General of the Ghana Health Service.

But some reports, however, suggest that the termination follows information forwarded to the seat of government by a Medical Team loyal to the New Patriotic Party that revealed the new GHS boss is an opposition NDC loyalist since 1992 but managed to warm his way into NPP after January 7, 2017.

Upper West Denkyira Consistency has been a strong hold for the New Patriotic Party but due to the unfair treatment meted out to Dr. Baffour Awuah, The NPP appreciated a defeat at the constituency.

Even though, there was numerous calls from the Chiefs, Opinion leaders, youth groups and Constituents fell on dead ears
