Mr Anthony Oppong, Effutu Municipal Electoral Officer, Electoral Commission (EC), took the delegates through the processes of election in accordance with the party’s constitution before the acclamation. Madam Ama Benyiwa-Doe, Central Regional Minister, who was present at the conference, commended supporters, especially the delegates for supporting the MP to bring development to the area.

The Minister urged the delegates not to allow fabrication of stories by opponents of the party to discourage them from campaigning hard for the NDC to win both Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
