An ex-convict Godwin Ako Gunn has been elected as the deputy Communications Director of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Mr. Ako Gunn was elected the second deputy Communications Director after polling 1816 votes from the total votes cast.
The NDC held its 9th Annual Delegates Congress on Saturday, November 17, at the Fantasy Dome inside the Accra Trade Fair Center.
Over 9000 delegates gathered at the venue to vote, as the process stretched all through Saturday to late Sunday evening.
Mr. Ako Gunn was elected after coming in second-place to Kwaku Boahene, who polled 2847 votes to win the first deputy communications director position.
Mr. Ako Gunn was one of the NDC communicators who were found guilty of contempt in 2016 for threatening judges on radio.
He, together with show host Salifu Maase and another panellist Alistair Nelson, became known as the ‘Montie 3’ after they used threatening words on judges.
The three were subsequently sentenced to four months in prison by the Supreme Court following contempt proceedings against them.
They were, however, remitted by then President John Dramani Mahama after serving just 27 days in jail.
Despite this, Mr. Ako Gunn overcame the odds to win the second deputy Communications Director position of the NDC.
