The Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has announced former Deputy National Youth Organiser Eric Edem Agbana as the winner of the Ketu North Constituency parliamentary primaries in the Volta Region, which took place on Saturday.
The decision was made on Tuesday, May 16 by a special committee appointed by the FEC of the party.
The primaries were contested by eight aspirants and ended in a deadlock between Mr Agbana and John Kwabla Adanu, who both claimed victory after getting 359 votes each.
The Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC) confirmed that it was a draw and did not declare a winner.
However, Mr Agbana was unhappy with the situation and insisted that he had won. He also exchanged harsh words with his rival.
On Tuesday, he apologised for his remarks and thanked his opponents.
“I want to say sorry for some comments I made in the heat of the moment. We all know that when the tensions were high, we gave some interviews and said certain things that were not appropriate.”
He pledged to get at least 85 percent of votes for the NDC in 2024.
