Speaking to the Ghana News Agency, Mr Okai said he became Chairman in 2001 when the NDC was in opposition but under his guidance the party regained the constituency in the 2004 elections and retained it in 2005 in a by-election following the demise of the sitting MP, Mr Ayikwei Mankattah.
The party retained the seat again in the 2008 and 2012 general elections making it a safe seat for the NDC.
The aspirants will be vetted before the elections which will be conducted later in the year.
