NARR: Multiple times Flagbearer of the People’s National Convention, (PNC), Dr. Edward Mahama has strongly admonished Ghanaians not to press the “self-destruct” button over differences as to how best to deal with challenges associated with the Voters Register. Speaking to Radio Ghana on the sidelines of the Regional Congress of the PNC in Sunyani, in the Bono-Ahafo Region, Dr. Mahama stressed that no matter what is decided Ghanaians must realize that they are one people and unite for the betterment of the country. The high point of the congress was the election of the young Sampson Sampana as regional Chairman of the PNC. It is Regional congress season in the PNC as the party gets ready for its national delegates conference inWa, in the Upper West Region. The Bono-Ahafo Regional Branch became the eight Regions to go congress. The main task for the delegatesfrom all the 29 constituencies in Bono-Ahafo was to elect new Regional Executives to steer the affairs of the party for the next four years. Despite this and with national elections of the PNC around the corner, the venue was awash with posters of people vying for National Executive Positions. Most of them were in attendance to campaign and were given time to address the delegates, after a short welcome address by the outgone Regional Chairman, Thomas Boye, the Regional Executive Aspirants were also given the opportunity to address the delegates with the hope of making last minutes converts. A team from the Electoral Commission led by Mr. Buadu, then took charge for the elections centered on four main positions as all the other positions had office holders going unopposed. The 145 strong Electoral College voted on Chairman, Treasurer, Women’s Organizer and Organizer. With all the votes counted interesting results emerged. In the Chairmanship race, the incumbent, Thomas Boye, was unseated by Sampson Sampana, who garnered 75 votes to beat his opponents 34 votes. The regional Organizer race was won by Incumbent Benjamin Attar Ric, who beat his challenger Peter Karoni, 63 votes to 46. For women’s Organizer, Abiba Mumuni won the day with 61 votes, 10 more than her closest rival, Cynthia Kotei’s 51 votes. Collins Kyere was elected as Treasurer, with 67 votes beating David Amoah who got 44 votes. The newly elected regional executives were sworn in by the General Secretary of the PNC Bernard Mornah. In brief remarks, the 2013 Presidential candidate of the Party, Hassan Ayariga, called for unity among the executives and the rank and file to improve the electoral fortunes of the Party. Speaking to GBC, Dr. Edward Mahama who had earlier told the gathering that in response to incessant calls from PNC supporters, he will be seeking the flagbearership of the party for the 2016 elections. He also expressed support for either an outright merger or an electoral alliance with the Nkrumahist parties.
