The defeated Member of Parliament for the Ledzokuku constituency, Dr. Bernard Okoe Boye has returned to the LEKMA Hospital to help with consultations a week after he narrowly lost his parliamentary seat.
Dr Okoe Boye, who garnered 54,072 votes compared to the 55,938 garnered by the NDC’s Benjamin Aryiku Narteh expressed gratitude to his constituents for the opportunity to serve them over the past four years.
In a Facebook post, Dr. Oko Boye, who is also the Deputy Health Minister, said his service to the nation does not end with his electoral defeat.
“First post election Monday consultations at the Lekma Hospital. Some staff were happy to see me doing fine, some surprised at my activity having assumed that not winning the Parliamentary election meant away with community service.
“It is important to understand that the joy a true leader experiences does not lie in the position he holds but in the service his people receive. I thank God that you do not have to necessarily hold a position to assist others experience a better world,” he said.
Showing his religious said, Dr. Okoe Boye, who endeared himself to many Ghanaians with his intelligent analysis of whatever national issue he discusses, said “because He lives, we can face tomorrow.”
