The immediate past General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu, has pledged his support to the party’s administration led by Stephen Ayesu Ntim and Justice Kodua Frimpong.
“I would like to take this opportunity to openly assure them of my unwavering commitment and support to their administration, especially as we approach the 2024 general election, which we are determined to win,” he said.
Mr Boadu lost his position to Mr Kodua at the party’s National Delegates’ Conference, which was held on Saturday, July 16, 2022, at the Accra Sports Stadium to elect new leaders.
Mr Boadu said in a statement issued in Accra that his determination to work hard to help the NPP break the ‘8’ had grown stronger than ever.
He, therefore, urged party members, particularly those who supported him in his re-election bid, to give their full support to the new administration and the party as a whole in order to win the 2024 general election.
He expressed complete confidence in the new executives’ ability to steer the party’s affairs and make history by winning the 2024 general election.
“I would also like to humbly request that all party members who believed in my vision and supported my re-election bid kindly extend similar belief and support to the newly elected executives in order for them to succeed,” Mr Boadu said.
“Congratulations once more to the Ntim-Kodua-led national executive officers.” “May you lead this party to greatness and fulfil our people’s hopes and dreams,” he added.
Mr Kodua, the Chief Executive Officer of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA), defeated Mr Boadu to become the governing party’s new chief scribe.
He received 2,837 votes, while John Boadu received 2,524 votes.
Since being appointed as acting General Secretary in 2015 and later elected as a substantive scribe for the NPP, John Boadu has held the position.
