A former Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Ejisu-Juaben in the Ashanti Region, Yaw Afrifa Yamoah Ponko, has predicted doom for the newly elected chairman of National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Ashanti region, Andrew Nana Kwasi.
According to him, Nana Kwasi was a failure from the day he won the NDC chairmanship race in the Ashanti region.
He made this assertion on Happy FM’s ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ show.
“Making my observation from the way he [Nana Kwame] is talking, nothing tells me that he’s a failure from scratch. He doesn’t know how to talk and he will make things very difficult for the NDC loyalist in Ashanti region.”
Yamoah Ponko also accused the former government appointees and party officials for masterminding to skew the votes of the delegates against the former Deputy Minister, Joseph Yamin.
Joseph Yamin’s bid to lead the NDC failed as he lost by 88 votes to Andrews Augustus Nana Akwasi, who polled 699 votes.
The NDC elected new regional executives in all ten regions. Some big names suffered loses including former Transport minister Dzifa Ativo, who lost her bid to lead the NDC in the Volta region.
Greater Accra regional chairman Ade Coker retained his seat.
