Despite repeated assurance that he was in control of the election and things could turn in his favour as the counting continued, John Boadu, incumbent NPP General Secretary has been defeated.
John Boadu got 1,086 votes while Justin Kodua polled 1,606 votes, Myvoicenews.com confirmed.
The Electoral Commission is however yet to announce final, official results.
John Boadu who earlier appeared too sure of himself ahead of the contest told journalists he would win.
He however was defeated by Lawyer Justin Frimpong Kodua who swept almost all the polling stations including all the Ashanti Region.
Provisional results put Justin Kodua ahead of John Boadu by more than 500 votes.
Lawyer Justin Frimpong Kodua (JFK) is the Chief Executive Officer of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA).
He officially declared his intention to contest for the position of the General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in March this year and was seen as an underdog.
Lawyer Justin Frimpong Kodua, an energetic, affable and enthusiastic young man with creative ideas in contemporary party management and governance is poised to transform the administrative set-up of the New Patriotic Party to make it work again.
Justin Frimpong Kodua intimated that, breaking the 8 year jinx requires fresh ideas, and a united front to energize the party base.
JFK’s strong administrative and managerial prowess is evidenced by the enormous transformations that have taken place at YEA under his stewardship.
JFK has not only built an open personality that endears him to the rank and file of the party, but also he is very confident that he has the wherewithal to steer the affairs of the NPP in the right and desired direction for electoral victory in 2024 and beyond.
