The fourth-time defeated New Patriotic Party (NPP) national chairman hopeful, Mr Stephen Ntim, has declared that his loyalty to the party is unshaken, even though he failed in his fourth time in his attempt to serve the party in the capacity as national chairman.
Freddie Worsemawu Blay beat Stephen Ntim by polling 3,021 votes as against Ntim’s 2515 votes at the party’s Saturday national delegates conference in Koforidua in the Eastern Region.
Dr Richard Amoako Baah polled 18 votes.
“First of all I want to express my sincerest thanks to almighty God for making this day possible. I want to also thank the organisers for this conference and our distinguished delegates for doing what is expected of them,” Mr Ntim said whilst accepting the results of the elections.
“It is rather unfortunate that I have to lose for the fourth time in my attempt to serve the party in the capacity of national chairman.”
“However, once again it is victory for the New Patriotic Party, because we have succeeded in electing our new crop of national officers to steer the affairs of the party for the next four years.”
“As usual, my loyalty to the New Patriotic Party is not shaken by what has taken place. We can continue counting on Stephen Ntim as usual, because it is party first, thank you all very much,” he said.
Most Rev Dr Samuel Asante Antwi swore the new elected executives into office moments after the Electoral Commission declared the results at 4:20 a.m., on Sunday, July 8, 2018.
