Nana Akwasi defeats Lawyer Evans Amankwa in Ashanti NDC Regional elections

Spread the love

Following the results of Sunday’s elections, Augustus Nana Akwasi Andrews, the NDC’s regional chairman for Ashanti, has kept his job.

In the elections, which included 61 candidates running for various posts, Andrews received 637 votes, defeating his leading rival, attorney Evans Amankwa, who received 572.

Alexander Asafo Agyei, a former deputy communications officer, lost his bid to succeed his employer Abass Nurudeen as communications officer.

The position of women’s organizer is currently vacant.

The newly elected party leader, Andrews, vowed in his victory address to bring the party together in order to overthrow the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2024.

“Let’s move away from creating factions within the party,” he said. “We have to unite towards returning to power in 2024. We are winning the elections and a lot will depend on us here in the Ashanti Region.”

At the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, where the polls were held, there was a standoff between unidentified thugs, and the police had to fire warning shots to break it up.

Two individuals who purportedly suffered injuries have now received treatment and been released.

What happened in the subsequent brawl, which took place on Sunday near the stadium’s main gate, remains unknown.

Top security officials rushed to the scene to discuss the issue with the party hierarchy.

Due to security concerns, the police were forced to remove their personnel from the front gate.

The event had no impact on the election.
