The newly elected General Secretary for the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Justin Frimpong Kodua has attributed his victory to the massive support from the Ashanti Region grassroots and party faithfuls.
Speaking on Akoma FM‘s current affairs and political show GhanAkoma Monday, July 18, lawyer Frimpong Kodua, who won the NPP General Secretary position by beating the incumbent, explained that the outcome underscores the mighty Ashanti Kingdom slogan: ‘Wokum Apem a, Apem Beba’ to wit thousands Ashanti warriors resurface even if thousands fall.
Hence, he stressed, that the slogan and attitude of Ashantis was the spirit that brought “the difference and did the magic”.
Among the five aspirants who were contending for the General Secretary position, at the end of the elections, Justin Frimpong Kodua won with 2,837 votes with the incumbent, John Boadu, polling 2,524 votes.
Lawyer Justin Frimpong Kodua, who wasn’t tipped to win until the day of the elections, managed to overturn the elections and won with over 300 vote difference.
When asked by the host of the show Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin on how he managed to sail through and whisked the victory from John Boadu, he explained, “This is a typical fighting spirit of Ashanti and we duly exhibited that trait.
“But the greater acknowledgment goes to God the Almighty who created the universe. He was the reason for this victory but our major bedrock was the unflinching Ashanti fighting spirit.”
Lawyer Justin Frimpong Kodua, popularly known as JFK, further admonished all hands to be on deck to foster a united front to “break the eight” in 2024.
