NDC Elections: Putiaha appreciates party after his bid failed
Former Upper West Regional Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Issahaku Nuhu-Putiaha has expressed appreciation to the rank and file of the party for the support offered him during the just-ended elections.
Mr Putiaha lost his bid to be retained after losing slightly to lone contender Mr Thomas Saad Ngminbahaara in a keen contest.
“I wish to thank the rank and file of my BELOVED NDC, especially delegates in the Upper West Region, for the show of love and support for me throughout my campaign process,” the former organizer said in a statement.
He congratulated the newly elected Regional Organizer on his triumph as well as other candidates who emerged victorious at the elections.
“I presented myself to renew my mandate as Regional Organizer but the delegates, in their own wisdom, considered my contender, Thomas Mwinbahaara. I wish to congratulate comrade Thomas and all those who emerged victorious.
“My unflinching support for the NDC continues unabated!” he stated.
Mr Putiaha, who was also a former Wa Municipal Chief Executive, thanked party elders, supporters, faithfuls and all stakeholders for giving me the mandate to serve as Regional Organizer for four years.
“Throughout that period, I have enjoyed working with you and our collective agenda increased the electoral performance of our party.
“This, we shall continue to do even in my different capacity,” he assured.
The elections saw the retention of the party’s top hierarchy in the region: the Regional Chairman, Mr Abdul Nasir Saani alias Bunas and regional Secretary, Lawyer Charles Lwanga Puozuing.
