The win in the primary organised on Saturday, is the third attempt of Asenso-Boakye in the move to becoming a Parliamentarian representing the people of Bantama.
Graphic Online’s reporter in Kumasi, Daniel Kenu reports that Asenso Okyere won comfortably with 456 votes as against 122 by the incumbent Daniel Okyem Aboagye.
Okyem Aboagye in a similar fashion snatched the seat from Henry Kwabena Kokofu in the last parliamentary primary in Bantama.
There was however confusion at the Cultural Centre polling station during voting in the morning.
The confusion started when someone said to be an official of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) cast his vote.
The security detail at the Cultural Centre polling station maintained law and order after the scuffle.
