Koku Anyidoho says he remains committed to the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) bid to win election 2020 despite losing out on the party’s General Secretary position.
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.

However, Koku Anyidoho lost heavily to incumbent Johnson Asiedu Nketia, to the surprise of many, who had expected a keen contest.
Out of the almost 9,000 votes cast, Mr. Nketia polled a whopping 6644 to emerge victor and retain his position.
Meanwhile, Koku Anyidoho only managed to poll just 1655 of the total votes cast at the Congress.
Speaking after the results were declared, Anyidoho said he accepts his loss in good faith and pledged to continue supporting the NDC.
He said he will continue to remain committed as the party aims to return to power in 2020.
“In the name of the party, the supremacy of the party, I wish to say that we accept the results declared by the Electoral Commission,” Anyidoho said in his concession speech.
“It is the victory we are looking for in 2020, and we are still committed to the fight. We will still be with the party, we shall work with the party and work hard. We need to find a strong horse for 2020 and that strong horse is a strong party, we are committed to a strong party,” he added.
