The New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for the Ablekuma South constituency, Ms Ursula Owusu, has described Eva Lokko?s affiliation to the Progressive People?s Party (PPP) as a wrong choice.?

Ms Owusu said though Mrs. Lokko is competent, the party will not make any positive impact on her political ambition.


The former Director General of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation was approved by the party?s Executive Committee and outdoored to party supporters on Wednesday.

Speaking on Citi Fm, Ms. Owusu said, ?this has nothing to do with her competency or capabilities. The party ticket she is standing on does not have a realistic chance of winning elections, so she is in the wrong party.?

She, however, described the position given Ms Lokko as an honour saying, ?you have been chosen to partner someone who is running as president in the Republic of Ghana, and it?s an honour. But let?s be realistic, the best the PPP can achieve is to come third. There is no way they are going to beat either the NPP or the NDC [National Democratic Congress]. It is not possible.?

?Paa Kwesi Nduom himself stood for elections the last time and did worse than [George] Aggudey. He may improve his performance now, but he can never translate the percentage of votes that he can cover into an election victory,? said Ms Owusu.
