Former Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur is optimistic the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) will return to power in 2021 if it is well organized.Describing the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) as “deceptive”, Mr. Amissah-Arthur has rallied his party faithful to unite and attach a lot of importance to the grassroots and the branches.
According to him, the branches are the bedrock of the party hence a lot of seriousness must be given to that sector.
Mr. Amissah-Arthur noted the NPP government led by President Nana Akufo-Addo has failed Ghanaians, so NDC supporters need to work hard in order to take the mantle from them in 2020.
Speaking as part of his touching base visit to observe and monitor the ongoing branch level elections in the Obuasi East and West Constituencies in the Ashanti region, he charged the new executives to eschew acts of divisions and work hard to capture political power in the next general elections.
Amissah-Arthur re-echoed the need to encourage both winners and losers of the internal polls to unite and work harder than before to ensure the NDC comes to power again.
He was accompanied by former Ashanti regional minister Alex Ackon and regional organiser Alhaji Sane.
On his part, the former Ashanti regional minister called for the new and old executives to team up and work diligently by preaching the achievements and ideals of the party in anticipation of winning more members to the fold.
