He was elected by popular acclamation by all the 194 delegates at the delegates' conference on Thursday.
The Eastern Regional Organizer of the Party, Mr Bismark Tawiah Boateng urged supporters of the Party to unite and intensify their electioneering campaigns to ensure victory for the NDC in Election 2004. He advised NDC supporters, who could not participate in the photo- taking exercise to do so during the mopping up exercise.
Mr Anthony Gyampo, Regional NDC Secretary, said the NPP administration had failed to implement its campaign promises of providing employment for the youth and to reduce school fees.
