NDC regional elections: Ambassador Nyamekye Marfo elected Brong Ahafo Chair

About 925 delegates of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Brong Ahafo Region who converged on the Jubilee Park in Sunyani on Saturday (01-08-18) decided to renew the mandate of three regional executives of the party at their 9th regional delegate’s conference in Sunyani.

The three, regional Chairman and former Ghana’s ambassador to Egypt, Kwadwo Nyamekye Marfo, Regional Secretary, Dennis Yeboah Twumasi and Regional Zongo Coordinator, Alhaji Baba Amadu Gausu went into the election unopposed.

The hottest contest was over the position of Regional Organizer where at the end of voting, Mohammed Seidu parried off the strong challenge to obtain 543 votes to beat Opoku Mensah Prince and Akwasi Lampo who obtained 198 votes and 114 votes respectively.

The voting process was halted and nearly marred due to some missing names from the delegate register of some constituencies but the swift intervention of the election committee, the EC, and some party bigwigs restored calm.

The Conference on Friday elected Hon. Agnes Kusi and Fati Abubakar as Women’s and Deputy Women’s Organizers respectively and Thomas Warlanyo Tsekpo and Owusu Ababio Nkrumah as Youth Organizer and Deputy Youth Organizers.

Security

In a Citi News interview on the sidelines of the conference, the Regional Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), Chief Inspector Augustine Kingsley Oppong, disclosed both uniformed, plain clothes and MTTD personnel have been deployed to maintain law and order.

The newly elected executives were later sworn into office by the General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia.
