The Chief Executive Officer of Ideal Financial Holdings, Dr Nii Kotei Dzani has been elected the Council of State representative for the Greater Accra Region.

Dr Dzani polled 20 votes followed by Nene Kanor Attiapah with 12 votes.

The remaining candidates had zero votes.

The Greater Accra Region poll was an area of interest given that the former NDC MP for Ningo-Prampram, Enoch Teye Mensah was scheduled to take part in the election, but later withdrew at the last minute citing personal reasons.

The NDC executives of the Ningo-Prampram constituency had, prior to his withdrawal, expressed their disappointment with the former MP’s decision, saying it would send wrong signals to the grassroot members of the party, since they would think that he has defected to the governing New Patriotic Party.

A total of 113 candidates between the ages of 23 and 84, are contesting the elections, which is taking place in all the regional capitals across the country.
