When I lost the election, Obuobia Darko-Opoku was a treasure lost to Weija-Gbawe. Obuobia Darko-Opoku, a prominent National Democratic Congress (NDC) member, has asserted that she didn’t lose the Weija-Gbawe seat.
Instead, her constituents lost someone who, out of love for them, was willing to die for them.
She asserts that she thinks God did not wish to confine her to just one constituency and that this is why she lost the elections.
When she made these remarks, Obuobia Darko-Opoku was appearing on Accra-based TV3.
“I just think and can understand that God didn’t want to put me in a corner,” she said. I didn’t need to stand in one spot because I am an all-around player. When I could be the MP for the entire country, I was merely going to stay in one district and serve as their representative.
When someone told me I had lost Gbawe during an interview, I countered that they had lost me because of the work I was going to do there. I’m sure that everyone who knows me understands that I would die for those people. Nothing is too difficult for me to do for those people. To get assistance, I was moving from office to office. Since the NDC was in control at the time, I was requesting police and streetlights.
