NDC race: Aquinas floored as Central Region delegates endorse E.K.T. Addo

A former Central Regional Minister, Ebenezer Kojo Tei Addo has won the central regional chairmanship contest of the National Democratic Congress.

The veteran politician and lawyer polled 299 votes to beat his closest contender Kakra Yalley who polled 256 votes.

Another former Central Regional Minister under the Mahama administration, Aquinas Tawiah Quansah, who was widely tipped to win the election only placed last in the three man contest polling 157 votes despite the huge support he allegedly enjoyed from the outgoing chairman Bernard Allotey Jacobs popularly referred to us “Educated Fisherman”.

Another contest which was expected to live up to the billing was the secretaryship race as the two front runners Henry Kweku Hayfron ,former Municipal Chief Executive for Mfantseman and ace journalist Kojo Quansah all polled 238 votes to tie .
The party is yet to fix another date to break the tie thereby electing one to head its Secretariat in the region.

In his valedictory speech the newly elected chairman Lawyer Ebenezer Tei Addo popularly known as E.K.T. Addo pledged to unite the rank and file of the party for another victory come 2020.

He urged all party members to support the new executives to deliver on their vision of recapturing more seats in the parliamentary elections come 2020.
