THE Amansie West Constituency of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has held its delegates congress at Manso Antoakrom to elect new leaders to steer the affairs of the party for the next four years.
The nine-member executive had Mr James Addai Agyapong as chairman. He polled 593 votes to beat his main opponent, Mr Osei Kwame Panin who had 280 votes.
Other executive members elected were Mr Rockson Yeboah, First Vice-Chairman; Mr S.A. Opoku, Second Vice-Chairman; Mr James Asafo Akowuah, Secretary and Mr Atta Amofa, Assistant Secretary.
The rest were Madam Akua Afriyie, Women’s Organiser; Mr Yaw Nuamah, Organiser, and Mr Bismarck Yaw Boadu, Youth Organiser.
Speaking at the congress, the Ashanti Regional Secretary of the party, Mr Sam Cudjoe, commended the delegates for the maturity they showed in the elections.
He said the peaceful nature of the elections was a testimony of the party’s resolve to put their differences aside.
Mr Cudjoe said the NDC government was destroying the good things the NPP government left behind and Ghanaians were crying for the NPP to relieve them.
It was, therefore, important that the NPP worked seriously towards victory in the 2012 elections.
Mr Cudjoe appealed to the new executives to let unity be their guide so that together they could galvanise the people for victory in the next elections.
The new Constituency Chairman, Mr Addai Agyapong, on behalf of his colleagues, thanked the delegates for the confidence reposed in them and pledged to work hard to develop the party.
