Nkawkaw (E/R), Mar 05, GNA – The Nkawkaw Constituency of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has elected Kwame Osei Dankwa as its Chairman.
He was the only candidate and was therefore declared elected unopposed.
For the first Vice Chairman position, Francs Akuoku polled 283 votes to beat off the challenge by three other contestants - Kwesi Asante, who had 232 votes, Ben Owusu-Addo, 136 votes, and Fimbewho Boateng, 45 votes.
The other elected officers were Fred Nkansa, second Vice Chairman, Andy Ameyaw, Secretary, Felix Dampare, Assistant Secretary, Joseph Frimpong, Organizer, Veronica Anim, Women’s Organizer, Mohammed Nurudeen, Nasara Coordinator, Osei Tachie, Treasurer, and Twum-Barimah Asante, Youth Organizer.
Mr. Eric Kwakye Darfour, the Eastern Regional Minister, reminded them to work together to broaden the party’s support base.
They should avoid needless distractions and anything likely to create cracks and undermine the unity of the party.
Earlier, some supporters and delegates to the constituency congress staged a peaceful demonstration – to register their displeasure with the disqualification of two candidates, who had joined the chairmanship race – Nana Francis Kwame Agyei, alias ‘Nafak’ and William Wiafe.
