Incumbent General Secretary of governing NPP John Boadu has suffered humiliating defeat, losing the chief scribe position to Lawyer Justin Frimpong Kodua, in a crucial National Delegates’ Conference held Saturday in Accra Sports Stadium, after JB was hard-hit by the wind of change blowing in the party.
He lost to Justin Frimpong Koduah, also known as JFK in a high competitive election conducted in Accra-Ghana, characterised by allegations of vote buying.
