Greater Accra NDC not for highest bidder – Nukpenu aims 3rd straight victory
Greater Accra Organiser for National Democratic Congress (NDC) says delegates must look beyond tribalism and religion and vote for leaders who committed and determined to work hard to bring the party back to power.
According to Anthony Nukpenu, persons contesting various positions of the party in Greater Accra must be prepared to sacrifice their individual interests for the general good of the NDC.
“This election is not about who pays highest. This election should not be about my tribes' man or woman. This election should not be about where we come from and our religion. This election should focus on personalities that have their eyes on the game,” he told Myjoyonline.com in an interview.
The elections, he added: “it should be about dedicated, committed and determined people. It should be about selfless and honest people to build that regional team that must deliver.
Mr Nukpenu who has held the Regional Organiser position since 2010, is hoping to be re-elected for the third time on a roll, as delegates of the opposition party in the national capital go to Congress on September 1, 2018, to elect new officers.
“The Greater Accra NDC cannot risk the Organiser position with someone who has not experienced it before. At least President Nana Addo has taught us a great lesson in that and we cannot take that risk,” he said.
The incumbent believes election 2020 is a must win for the NDC and can only be achieved by electing competent people to handle the various portfolios to work for the good of the NDC.
He prides himself in his ability to effectively communicate the party’s vision and mission with the support base as well as appeal to floating voters.
“It is with this that I will admonish all the delegates to once again vote for Anthony Kwame Mensah Nukpenu,” he beseeched the delegates.
