W/Region NDC Chairman Upset By Defeat

defeated 1The incumbent Regional Chairman of the National Demo-cratic Congress (NDC) in the Western Region nearly collapsed when his hope of retaining the chairmanship position was dashed.

No sooner had the Electoral Commission announced the results and declared the winner, than Nana Kojo Torku became shocked, dazed, and ready to fall.

It took the swift intervention of the police to calm his nerves, and bring him back to normalcy.

Mr. Michael Aidoo obtained 133 votes to become the new regional chairman while the vanquished, Nana Torku, secured 126 votes. Alhaji Fuseini Mahama was elected the vice chairman.

Other winners were the incumbent Women’s Organiser, Ms. Anita Annan retaining her position with 33 votes to defeat Ms. Beatrice Sam who got 32 votes, Mr. Jounus Mohammed obtained 45 votes ahead of three others to become the Regional Youth Organiser.

The rest are Messrs, Robert Agyekum and Abizi Morkeh, who obtained 40 and 27 votes to take the Deputy Youth Organiser position, Mr. Joseph Nelson had 136 votes to become the Regional Secretary, Mr. Famous Tumi Acquah, Propaganda Secretary, with 131 votes, Mr. Japhet Baidoo, Regional Organiser with 166 votes, while Mesdame Araba Tagoe and Beatrice Sam were elected Deputy Women’s Organisers.

The General-Secretary, Mr. Asiedu Nketia appealed to the winners to work in tandem with the losers for victory in 2016.

On his part, the regional chairman-elect, Mr. Aidoo, thanked God for the peaceful conduct of election and called on party members to close their ranks and work hard for the success of the NDC.
