The Committees inaugurated over the weekend in the regional capital, Ho included the Political Committee, Communication Committee, Research and Strategy Committee, Constitution and Legal Committee and Finance Committee.

Members of the various committees were expected to work together and engage the grassroots in order to increase electoral fortunes for the party in the region for victory 2020 and also help in administering the party’s activities in pursuance to the its Constitution and applicable laws and regulations.
General Secretary of NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia who swore in members of the committees, cautioned member to see the new role as a call for work and productivity and urged them to actively work to increase votes for the party.
Mr. Nketia advised the leadership of the party to protect and secure the strongholds and not take them for granted asking, “let us work to improve what we have.”
He r bemoaned the culture of treating new members well and forgetting faithful and committed members noting that, that act affected the party negatively hence the call for equal treatment for all members in the party.
Mr. Nketia argued, “it’s more important to protect and secure the core voters rather than fighting for floating voters, thus, when core voters feel the sense of belonging there will be no need to fight for floating voters.”
He described the call for electing Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MDCEs) as a step in the right direction believing that it would take “the winner takes it all” politics away and rather bring balance at the district level for accelerated development.
Volta Regional Chairman, NDC speaking on behalf of members of the committee assured the General Secretary and party members that, the committees were poised and ready to deliver in order to increase votes for the party to win the 2020 general elections and to bring development to the doorstep of the people of the Volta Region.
