It was attended by 330 delegates, 10 from each of the 33 constituencies in the region while the General Secretary of the party, Alhaji Mohammed Frimpong, led some members of the national executive to the event.
The regional officers, who were retained are Messrs Nana Osei Bonsu, Chairman; Rev. Mike Adu Akore, First Vice Chairman; Alhaji Rakina Ibrahim, Second Vice Chairman; Ampah Amoasi Gideon, Secretary; Asante Williams, Deputy Secretary; Fred Elorm Dzah, Youth Leader; Danso Edward, First Deputy Youth Organiser and James Oteng Boateng, Second Deputy Youth Organiser.
The rest are Rev. Mrs Vida Adjei, Women’s Leader; Rosina Tsitsi, First Deputy Women’s Leader; Dorothy Ableh, Second Women’s Leader; Agyiri Ebenezer,
Treasurer; Okatakyie Agyeman Prempeh, Communications Director and Christian Tutu, Deputy Communications Director.
It was supervised by Mr Asirifi-Young Guggisberg, the First Deputy Director of the Electoral Commission (EC) in the Eastern Region.
Addressing the delegates after the acclamation, the General Secretary of the party, Alhaji Frimpong, advised the executive to work hard in order to mobilise more votes to ensure the party’s victory at next year's general election.
He said the survival of the party depended largely on "you to propagate the good policies of the NDP to the Ghanaian electorate to support NDP’s victory in 2020.”
Touching on the elections of Metropolitan Municipal and District Chief Executives ( MMDCEs ), Alhaji Frimpong called on all Ghanaians, especially supporters of the NDP, to vote "yes" at the referendum.
That, he said, would further deepen the democratic process in the country and also ensure full participation of the people in governance.
The election of the MMDCEs, Alhaji Frimpong explained, was the policy of the NDP which the party would automatically support to succeed.
Regarding the fight against corruption, Alhaji Frimpong disclosed that the party would establish a special court to deal with corruption cases.
The Eastern Regional Chairman of the NDP, Mr Osei Bonsu, urged the party supporters to begin to explain the party's campaign message to the people wherever they found themselves.
