“Age plays a major role in everything. This job of a General Secretary involves a lot of your time, and energy among others.

“I have considered all these, and I am of the firm view that I won’t contest again. What I am saying is that I won’t seek re-election as General Secretary. I have two other options at hand; either I go for the chairmanship or retire from politics,” Mr Nketiah said.

Asked if the claims of him contesting the incumbent chairman Samuel Ofosu Ampofo were true, he refused to officially confirm and was quick to explain that whoever comes out to compete with Mr Ofosu Ampofo will not be problematic.
