NDC decides: Ofosu Ampofo, Asiedu Nketiah win big


9:45pm Ampofo wins chairmanship race

The chairmanship race is over! Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has beaten four of his competitors to lead the party into the 2020 elections. A loyal and committed member, a faithful and humble servant. A great victory for the former branch member, MP and Local Government minister.

9:20pm The General, Asiedu Nketiah has won the father and son battle against his deputy Koku Anyidoho. It was meant to be a cliffhanger but it turned out to be a stroll on the political field for the General.

Deputy NDC National Organiser Akamba Joshua Hamidu has won promotion to the National Organiser position. He beat former National Organiser Yaw Boateng Gyan who has said the party had missed his four-year absence.

Former NDC National Chairman Awudu S. Asorka has won one of three slots for National Vice Chairperson. The man famed for his vigilante group ‘Azorka Boys’ now gets a seat in the party’s National leadership.

His boys chant ‘never say die, never say die, we are Azorka Boys, we never say die’.

In an interview with Joy News’ Parker-Wilson, she expressed satisfaction with the results which is yet to be officially declared. 

“I have lost but I am not sad,” she said explaining she was contesting a position no woman has ever held.

“Now there is no Voltarian in the game, and that is we should think about”, the tough-talking NDC woman who gained popularity as a serial caller for the party said.

That statement signalled the defeat of Dan Abodakpi who hails from the Volta region and was hoping to become National Chairman.

The Volta region is the ‘world bank’ of the NDC during general elections. The region pulls staggering votes for the NDC.
