Former president John Mahama has tasked the newly-elected national executives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to already hit the ground running to secure victory for the party in 2024.

Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, until this latest election as national chairman, had served as the general secretary of the party for the past 17 years. He received 5,569 votes (65.17% of the vote), as against his main contender, the immediate past chairman of the party, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, who garnered 2,892 votes (33.81%).

Fifi Kwetey, the former MP for Ketu South, becomes the party’s new general secretary.

“The first thing I will say is that this celebration must be very short,” Mahama said after the elections. “We must cut the celebration short and set to work immediately.”

He said the stakes are high in the 2024 elections.

“Some people say ‘fear delegates’ but I believe that the delegates have the best wisdom and they have spoken and told us what they want and it is our duty to work with the blueprint that they have given us.

“These gentlemen and women here have been elected by the delegates to serve a mandate till 2026,” Mahama added.

At least 9,000 delegates took part in the voting process for the tenth congress of the National Democratic Congress, which ended Sunday dawn. Sixty-three candidates vied for various national positions within the NDC.

The NDC lost the last two general elections – 2016 and 2020 – at the presidential level and will be hoping to stage a comeback in 2024.
