I will work with new executive — Acheampong

The defeated Chairman of the Ejisu Constituency branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Joseph Kofi Acheampong, has said that he is not daunted by his loss, and so will work extra hard to enable the NDC to win both the presidential and the parliamentary elections in 2016.

Congratulating the newly elected executives, he indicated that, “I believe in the NDC and for that reason, the defeat will not scare me to do away with the party.”

Mr Acheampong also advised other aspirants who lost the election not to be daunted, but to work closely with the executives and in cohesion to win power in 2016.

Speaking to the Daily Graphic, Mr Acheampong said he would continue to work hard so that the party would consolidate the power it already had.

Mr Acheampong was overwhelmingly defeated by Mr Eugene Agyarko, a former executive member of the party. He polled 190 as against 52 at the just-ended constituency executive election conducted by the Regional Secretariat of the party and supervised by the Electoral Commission (EC).

It was one election which almost all the old executive members lost.

The post of vice-chairman went to Mustapha Mohammed. Mr Sannie Abdulai was elected as secretary while George Huze became assistant secretary. The organiser post was taken by Michael Nyaning while Mohammed Douglas became the treasurer.

The women’s organiser position went to Mrs Gloria Huze. The youth organiser was taken by Mr Charles Amoateng, and the propaganda position went to Christian Yeboah.
