Former Miss Ghana Benita Sena Golomeke who won the crown in 1997 last Saturday defeated the Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports to pick the ticket to represent the ruling National Democratic Congress [NDC] at the Parliamentary Elections in the 2012 General Elections for Ledzokuku Constituency in the Greater Accra Region.

People in the showbiz industry are considered as not too serious. When professionals in the entertainment industry try to veer off to politics, they are mocked because politics is believe to be for ‘serious’ people.

It is good to know that at least some Ghanaian voters are wise and of age when it comes to voting for people to represent them in Ghana’s parliament.

Now known as Benita Okity-Duah, she also defeated Nii Sowah Boye Sekan, the junior brother of the late Nii Adjei Boye-Sekan, the first MP in the Fourth Republic in the Ledzokuku Constituency.

The Ledzokuku Constituency has been one of the swing constituencies in the Greater Accra Region. The NDC won and maintain the seat with the Late Nii Adjei Boye-Sekan in 1992 and 1996. The NPP also won the seat in the 2000 Parliamentary Elections with Mr. Edward Akita and managed to keep it in 2004 with Dr. Gladys Norley Ashitey. The current MP, Nii Nortey Dua regained the seat for the NDC in 2008.

    @Lamar, Yeah, true. She’s just gone way off. Nothing on her to show that she was a beauty queen. If you look at Manuela Medie, Matilda Alomatu or even Brigitte Dzogbenuku (way back in 1991) you can see still the style and gait in them. Trim, and hot even after 40 years. As for this one….. daabi daabi daabi, and she’s not even 40! fufuo ne banku ash3 ne mma. You all remember the controversy that surrounded her winning the crown?

    Ghanaian celebrities please correct your CAPTION HEADLINE.Shes not on her way .SHE WANTS TO?
    Not even being a Teshiean has already disqualified her.All the NDC wanted was their old Mp out of  office because he was not helping.Ledzokuku Constituency seat is not for beauty pageants but it is for politicians, people with knowledge, capacity and ability to role, someone who can listen to the people of Ledzokuku Constituency.
