The Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has extended warm congratulations to all candidates who participated in the Regional Executive Elections which were held over the weekend.
The Vice President, in a tweet, said he is impressed with the “impressive show of intra-Party democracy so far exhibited by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the conduct of elections from the polling stations to the regional level.
“Congratulations to all competing parties,” he said in the tweet.
He, however, urged members of the party to be more poised, now than ever, to forge unity for a stronger Party.
“Even though the contestants may have been on opposing sides, let us all remember that we are one family, the Kukrudu family. Once again, ayekoo to all party faithful for this success,” he said.
After the party’s regional delegates conference, 12 incumbent Regional Chairmen of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) retained their positions.
The Ashanti Regional Chairman, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, and the Greater Accra Regional Chairman, Divine Otoo Agorhom, were among the candidates who retained their seats.
The Bono East NPP Regional Chairman, Thomas Adu-Appiah is among the candidates who lost their seats.
Ibrahim Baba Bukari won the bid with a landslide victory after polling 151 out of 237 valid votes cast.
In the Northern Region also, six executives retained their seats.
The incumbent Northern Regional Chairperson of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mohammed Adam Baantima Samba secured 238 votes representing 65.9 percent of the total votes cast to retain his position.
Meanwhile, General Secretary of the party, John Boadu has announced that a letter will soon be issued to officially inform party members that nominations are open for candidates who want to contest at the national level to do so.
