With just four months to the December 2020 general elections, the governing New Patriotic Party in the Volta Region has outdoored its campaign machinery in Ho over the weekend.
The 30-member Regional Campaign team, inaugurated by the National Organizer Mr. Sammi Awuku, is chaired by the NPP Regional Chairman, Mr. Makafui Woanya and comprises, the Regional Minister and his Deputy, Dr. Archibald Letsa and Rev. Johnson Avuletey, Council of State Member, Mr. Francis Nyonyo, Energy Minister and NPP Parliamentary candidate for Hohoe, Mr. John-Peter Amewu as well as other government and regional party functionaries, including Regional Secretary, Mr. Joseph Homenya.
They have a singular task of coordinating the campaign activities across all 18 constituencies in order to maximize the party’s votes in the region, which has been a stronghold for the opposition National Democratic Congress.
According to Mr. Awuku, the NPP was poised to work rigorously for the votes in the Volta region, stressing that they would resist any form of intimidation from their opponent on the campaign trail.
“For us, we are also targeting that we will move from our microfinance level in this region to be a commercial bank in this region and we [NPP] will not accept any form of intimidation. People should come to us with ideas; the NPP will not be cowed into submission that this [Volta Region] should be an exclusive preserve of the opposition party.”
He thus charged the campaign committee to work hard to deliver massive votes for the party’s presidential candidate, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, at the elections and also secure some parliamentary seats in the region.
On his part, Mr. Woanya expressed the readiness of the campaign team to deliver on its mandate and called for an all-hands-on-deck approach to deliver another resounding victory for the NPP in December.
