The former president of MUSIGA, Bice Osei Kufour, popularly known as Obour, has blamed his political misfortune on his inexperience.

He noted that his fiercest contender, Kwaku Asante Boateng, who is the incumbent MP for Asante Akyem South Constituency, is an experienced politician.

According to Obour, Boateng would surely know more political tactics to win the election than he could know, therefore, he would have to work harder toward the next election in 2024.
