His contender, Roni Nicole secured 317 votes. A third person in the race, Theophilus Tetteh withdrew at the last minute threatening a court action.
Thirteen constituency executives also resigned as a result of the election with some calling on Theophilus Tetteh to contest as an independent candidate in the constituency.
However, the Lawyer speaking on Monday said she does not believe her victory was controversial as has been described.
According to her, she fought hard to chalk success in her polls, adding the description has shocked her.
“I don’t see anything controversial about my victory…I am shocked at the report, almost 900 out of 1100 delegates came to vote and they elected me…in fact don’t tarnish my hard-won victory because I really suffered for it,” she said.
Mrs Ekuful, who said she was grateful to the party delegates for reposing confidence in her, promised to work hard to help the NPP record victories in both the parliamentary and presidential race.
“I’m pleading with those who feel offended to just let go because the party is supreme and NPP has the human resource to settle all scores, they should come out of their extreme positions and come together to work for NPP victory…I am ready to work with everyone and I need everyone on board,” she assured her opponents in the primary.
