The main contest in the election was featured among two veterans thus; a Former National General Secretary of the Teacher Trainees’ Association of Ghana (TTAG) Mr. Nicholas Kelvin Agboni and the Acting Sogakope Local GNAT secretary Mr. Francis Kwaku Viffah (Julius Lagbaja).

Though, most teachers and delegates within the Sogakope Local GNAT believe that, Agboni Nicholas Kelvin best fit the position of a secretary based on his track records, he lost narrowly to the incumbent acting Local Secretary Francis Kwaku Viffah (Julius Lagbaja) in a keen contest with 24 total valid votes against 31 valid votes.

Most delegates were shocked on the outcome of the election featuring between the two aspirants for the secretaryship because, they were not expecting Agboni Nicholas Kelvin, a first timer who contested to pull such a large number of votes against the long term serving aspirant.

Meanwhile, others believe that, Francis Kwaku Viffah (Julius Lagbaja) won the election because of the old executive officers who may want him to be re-elect and voted for him asuch. They came out with this assertion since four out of the eighth aspirants who were old executive officers went unopposed, aside the Youth Coordinator and Basic School Representative who were new aspirants and also contested unopposed.

Another keen contest featured the Acting Vice Secretary Mr. Amedzro Daniel and Mr. Frank Isaac Agidi, which was won by the former with 41 votes against 14 votes.

Some delegates disclosed that, over the years, most of the positions at the local level are being contested unopposed by old executive officers. Some alleged that, this practice has been there for ages and need to be corrected. According to them, the Sogakope local Council and the South Tongu District GNAT need to effectively advertise all positions to allow new individuals to contest.
