I’m still in shock - Dzokoto

13 December, 2016

Popular actor and TV personality, Kwame Dzokoto, is still in shock after losing the Tarkwa-Nsuaem parliamentary seat to the New Patriotic Party’s George Mireku Duker.

In an interview with Showbiz, Mr. Dzokoto said he was shocked at the loss considering how he was received by the constituents during his campaign.

“Actually, it was a shocker because I was very well received during my rounds and I didn’t attack anybody’s personality during my campaign.

“I had a very clean campaign while my opponent on the NPP ticket resorted to personal attacks telling people I am a concert man and all sorts of things," he said.

“I wanted to go to Parliament because I see the lack of development in the area so I was hoping to use my personality and popularity to help develop the area,” he added.

According to Dzokoto, he was very confident of winning because he had already started working on developmental projects in the constituency.

“The roads in the central business area in Tarkwa were in a very bad state so I fixed them as soon as I won the primaries. A lot of work is also being done in the Tarkwa Township,” he said.

“Also, I believed I could use my status as a parliamentarian to advance the cause of the arts and creative industry. For example, if a radio presenter isn’t being paid well, I could talk on their behalf and I could help push some of the laws in showbiz”.
