Dr. Mike Oquaye Jnr, the Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Free Zones Authority (GFZA), has officially declared his candidacy to challenge Sarah Adwoa Safo in the upcoming Dome-Kwabenya parliamentary primary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Dr. Oquaye revealed his candidacy in an interview with Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace FM, held on Tuesday, November 28, 2023.

Demonstrating his commitment to the residents of Dome-Kwabenya, Dr. Oquaye affirmed, “When it’s time to pick up forms and file nominations, I’ll be there to represent you.”

“I want to inform the people of Dome-Kwabenya, through your medium, that as soon as there’s an opening for picking up forms and filing of nomination, I, Michael Oquaye Jnr., will stand to represent the people of Dome-Kwabenya,” expressed Dr. Oquaye.

Sarah Adwoa Safo, the incumbent Member of Parliament, has reiterated her intent to seek re-election. If both candidates, Sarah Adwoa Safo and Dr. Mike Oquaye Jnr, are approved by the party, it would mark their third consecutive contest for the seat.

Adwoa Safo emerged victorious in the two previous elections, securing a win in the most recent instance in June 2020 with a narrow eight-vote margin.

Adwoa Safo’s recent bid for re-election faces challenges, as some residents oppose her retention due to her prolonged absence in 2022 due to family issues.

Adwoa Safo has apologized for neglecting her parliamentary duties and has pledged to do more in the future.
