Dzifa Attivor ‘boy’ Egypt Kudoto loses Volta NDC Youth Organizer position
Egypt Kudoto, an aide to former Transport Minister, Dzifa Attivor, has become the first casualty of the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) regional executives’ election in the Volta Region.
The incumbent Volta Regional Youth Organizer lost his reelection bid to his deputy, Mathias Alagbo.
Mathias Alagbo polled 51 votes against Egypt Kudoto’s 47 votes.
There are suggestions that Kudoto’s defeat could have some impact on Madam Dzifa Attivor who’s contesting the chairmanship position against the incumbent Regional Chairman, Gyapong Kudjo.
Egypt Kudoto, a former reporter for the Enquirer newspaper, was noted as also being a key member in the campaign team of Dzifa Attivor.
He was first elected as the Volta Regional Youth Organizer in 2014.
Most of the voting nationwide is expected to happen tomorrow [Saturday], September 1.
Party delegates will converge on various venues to concurrently elect executives to lead the regions for the next four years.
This weekend’s elections heralds the National Executive elections scheduled for September, and the party’s 2020 Flag bearer elections later in December 2018.
All the 54 candidates who filed papers to contest regional executive positions of the NDC in the Volta Region went through a vetting process to justify their legibility.
