I’m Still Loyal to NPP – Ntim Declares After Losing
National Chairman aspirant of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Stephen Ntim, has said his loyalty to the party has not waned though he lost the elections.
Mr. Stephen Ntim made this known at the 26th National Delegates Conference party in Koforidua on Saturday, 7 July.
He has been nominated four times and has lost all four elections.
In his concession speech, Mr Ntim said: “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 distinguish delegates for doing what is expected of them.
“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”, he said.
“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.
Mr. Freddie Blay, who has been acting as Chairman of the NPP for the past two years, was elected as the substantive Chairman in Koforidua.
He polled 3,021 votes as against 2,515 of his closest contender Ntim, whiles Dr Richard Amoako Baah polled 18 votes.
