Out of three candidates, Rex Asanga won with 344 votes, followed by Emmanuel Aphour with 154 votes while the hitherto enthusiastic MCE had 151 votes, coming last in the contest.
Hon. Amiyuure had stated emphatically that he was going to win the race due to his performance as MCE but his loss saw him looking miserably traumatized after results were announced.
Mocked by many as incompetent and dull, Hon. Amiyuure, incurred the wrath of NPP members who are usually heard chastising him for not doing enough in the Bolga Municipality which is also the Upper East Region capital.
