The Independent Member of Parliament for Nkawkaw constituency Seth Adjei Baah, a.k.a Shaaba, who lost his seat over the weekend after deciding to seek re-election on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party, (NPP) has said he has no plans on contesting as an Independent Candidate after his defeat.

According to him, he respects the verdict of the party delegates who by their vote have indicated that they prefer someone else to him.

Speaking on Okay FM on Monday, Hon. Seth Adjei Baah, said he was not ready to talk about any under hand dealings that might have caused his defeat, adding that he was ready to work with the party inspite of his loss.

He polled a paltry 26 votes and lost to the NPP’s Eastern Regional treasurer, Eric Kwakye Daffour, who garnered 192 votes.

The other contestants were the former MP; Kwabena Okekyere Adusah who got 186 votes, while Lawyer Joyce Opoku Boateng pulled 102 votes with Mr. Yaw Owusu Addo in charge of radio at GBC also getting 12 votes.

Hon. Seth Adjei Baah, back in 2008 after losing the NPP primaries went independent in disregard of the party’s constitution which resulted in his dismissal from the party but went ahead to win the elections.

In Parliament he sided with the NPP Minority.

The Party decided to extend an olive branch and re-admit all its party members who contested as Independent candidates.
