Chief Executive Officer of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly polled 3,298 while his contender Wisdom Nii Amo Dodoo managed 1,259 votes in Saturday's polls.Mr. Vanderpuije takes over from incumbent Fritz Baffour who decided not to seek re-election.
What this means is that Oko Vanderpuije, once declared parliamentary candidate for the Ablekuma South primaries will lead the party’s parliamentary campaign ahead of the 2016 general elections.
The NDC primaries has so far been marred by scores of voter register irregularities as thousands of card bearing members had not their names in the register – developments which emanated to scores of violence and bickering.
