Despite running against him in the election, the newly elected General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has stated that he is willing to cooperate with all of the regional chairmen of the party.
This occurred after Chairman Wontumi, the Ashanti regional chairman, reportedly forced all regional chairmen to publicly support John Boadu, who was in office at the time.
Unexpectedly, Justin Kodua won the race to replace John Boadu as NPP general secretary.
On Monday, July 18, 2022, Mr. Frimpong Koduah said on the Accra-based Adom FM, which Ghanatodayonline.com was listening to, that he needed his regional chairmen to join forces with him in the struggle for a shared objective.
“I need them [ the regional chairmen] more than they need me to be able to have a successful administration,” noted.
He further explained that there is no need to hold grudges against anybody because the mandate given to him should be used to bring the party together and not break it apart.
Justin Kodua won with 313 votes difference.
He polled 2,837 votes, with John Boadu trailing behind him with 2,524 votes.
John Boadu came in second with 2,524 votes, trailing him by 2,837 votes as the winner.
Iddrisu Musah, a former mayor of the Tamale Metropolitan Assembly, came in second to Mr. Boadu with a dismal 104 votes, followed by Frederick Opare Ansah with 50 votes, and Ramseyer A. Agyeman-Prempeh with a meager 8 votes.
Since his appointment as acting General Secretary in 2015 and subsequent election as a substantive scribe for the NPP, John Boadu has held his position. Source:
