Former Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister under the John Mahama regime Joseph Yammin has been elected National Organizer for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Mr Yammin defeated incumbent NDC National Organiser, Joshua Akamba and five other aspirants to grab the position. He polled 3,730 votes with his closest contender, Joshua Akamba trailing behind with 2035 votes.
The other contenders: Henry Osei Akoto, Mahdi Mohammed Gibrill Sidii Abubakari and Solomon Yaw Nkansah polled 158, 535, 607, 302 and 1173, respectively.
Yammin during his campaign argued that the NDC Party needed to have a formidable national executive team to win the 2024 elections which he said his contributions as the National Organiser would propel the party to the Jubilee House come January 7, 2025.
“While submitting his nomination forms, Mr Yammin said “In the NDC, whoever comes up for the National Organiser is qualified, but now I see myself as being able to convert a half chance into a goal. The others may be good, but I think that I am the right person to lead the party.”
