Sam George is a young budding politician who made the headlines prior to the 2016 presidential and parliamentary elections following the way and manner he defeated NDC stalwart and long serving Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram , Mr Enoch Teye in the party’s primaries.
Mr E.T. Mensah and Sam George locked horns in what was popularly referred to as “David and Goliath” fight in their determination to thump each other to lead the NDC in Ningo Prampram.
But George stunned everyone by humiliating the experienced politician to get the nod and eventually went ahead to win the seat for the NDC.
