A Deputy Executive Director of the National Service Scheme, Henry Nana Boakye, has won the National Youth Organiser elections of the New Patriotic Party.
Nana B, as he is affectionately called, polled 423 votes as against 246 by his closest contender, Dominic Kwesi Eduah, who aspires to go a notch up from his position as Deputy National Youth Organiser.
Kamal-Deen Abdulai came third with 102 votes with Emmanuel Nana Dannsa Appiah polling a single vote, shockingly, to come last.
Nana Appiah, a private legal practitioner, had touted is coming as one more issues-based than the rest.
The results were certified by the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC), which supervised voting, collation and counting.
Nana B had told delegates that his ambition to lead the youth wing of the party began while president of the Tertiary Students Confederacy (TESCON), the student wing of the NPP.
But his arch-challenger was Mr Eduah, who called himself the Field Marshal, claiming the “job dey for ground”.
His supporters argued that serving the youth is not about talk.
At the end of the day, the Prempeh College old boy won the contest.
