Mr Bernard Mornah has lost the chair slot of the People’s National Convention (PNC) after the party’s National Delegates Conference held on Wednesday, 30 September 2020.
He was beaten by Mr Moses Dani Baah, who had 1,297 votes as against the incumbent’s 1,266 after ballots from all the 16 regions were collated in the decentralised polls.

The Congress took place simultaneously in all the regions.

It was modified that way in line with the COVID-19 safety protocols.

Also at the polls, a former MP of the party, Mr David Apasera, won the flagbearer slot to lead the PNC into the 7 December 2020 polls.

His contenders included businessman Samson Asaaki Awingobit and Rev. Samuel Adjei Baah.

Mr Apasera polled 1,315 votes, Awingobit – 789 and Rev Adjei Baah – 465.

Mr Mornah conceded and wished the new leadership well as they take charge of the party’s affairs.

“I wish Moses Dani Baah, David Apasera and the rest of the team that is elected the very best in their stewardship.

“It is my hope that where we failed, they will succeed and where we succeeded, they will magnify.

“Above all, it is my hope that they will make the PNC a better political party than they have inherited”, Mr Mornah noted.

Mr Mornah, who is currently the PNC’s parliamentary candidate for Nadowli Kaleo constituency, is expected to channel his energies into contesting the Upper East regional seat which has been held for almost three decades by the longest-serving lawmaker in Ghana’s fourth republic, Mr Alban Bagbin of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
