The parliamentary candidate-elect for the Awutu Senya East Constituency in the just-ended National Democratic Congress (NDC) election has called for unity in the party, stating that there was no loser in the last Saturday, May 13, 2023 primaries.

According to Phyllis Naa Koryoo Okunor, everyone who took part in the contest is a winner because the greater task for the party ahead is winning seat in the 2024 election.

She stated that, with everyone coming onboard, the mission of winning Awutu Senya East seat for NDC is possible.

The private legal practitioner thanked the rank and file of the party for the confidence reposed in her and that of former President John Dramani Mahama.

The Awutu Senya East Constituency was part of the 259 constituencies across the country that were cleared by the party leadership to partake in the presidential and parliamentary primaries on May 13.
