The New Patriotic Party (NPP) won 19 of the 23 parliamentary seats, including two seats in the stronghold of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Speaking to chiefs in the Region as part of his “Thank you” tour, Akufo-Addo said he was stunned by his performance in the region.
“I have to thank you for voting massively for the NPP. Before the 2016 elections, we had only seven seats but now, nineteen seats including the Twifo Atti Morkwa and Ekumfi seats which we never thought of winning, are now for the NPP,” he said.
“I was shocked when I heard the NPP had won the Twifo Atomorkwa and Ekumfi Constituency seats. Indeed the Central Region has made history in the country’s politics,” he added.
The president-elect pledged to fulfill all his campaign promises and make Ghana a better place to live in.
