Aspiring Volta Regional Chairperson of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dzifa Aku Attivor has called for the support of delegates in the upcoming regional elections of the party in order to work towards NDC’s victory in 2020.
According to her, she decided to go for the chairmanship position in the Volta Region which is critical to NDC’s return to power because she has the clout to build the party.
“As we are all aware, Volta Region is the party’s world bank. It is therefore, necessary for the party to have the kind of leadership that can build a party with the capacity to stand the test of time.”
Madam Attivor said this while addressing supporters who thronged her manifesto launch on Monday, August 13, 2018 at the Ho main market.
She called on supporters of the party to help her unseat the incumbent Chairman Mr. John Gyapong in the elections slated for September 1, 2018 at Ho Technical University.
The former Minister for Transport said it is evident that the people of Ghana want NDC to come back to power in 2020 because the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government has failed to deliver on its campaign promises to Ghanaians prior to coming into office.
“The NPP in opposition made promises to transform Ghana but all we see today in Ghana is one family that is destroying the solid foundation John Mahama and the NDC laid. Our cocoa farmers in Sefwi are crying for the return of the NDC. The fisherfolks in Teshie and Moree are extremely disappointed in the NPP.”
“Our Women in the Ho market, Dzemeni, Asafo and Aboabo market in Tamale are in that state. Our shallot farmers in Anloga, our tomato farmers in Ziope are ready to vote for the NDC in 2020,” she added.
Madam Attivor therefore, promised to unite the party, attract first-time voters into the NDC, give hope to branches, connect the party back to the cadres, get women to be part of the new NDC and build a strong partnership with the media in the region.
Dzifa Attivor in her 8-paged manifesto, outlined initiatives she intends taking before and after victory 2020 among which is eradicating the “greedy and selfish” tag on the party through carrying out activities in the constituencies especially on welfare, thus, rebuilding and rebranding a positive image for the party in the region.
In all, a total of 54 aspirants are running for the various regional executive positions of the party.
