I will restore NDC’s 'World Bank' status in VR - Ganyaglo

Mr Francis Komla Ganyaglo, an aspiring Volta Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has asked delegates of the regional conference to vote for him to restore the Party’s “World Bank” status in the Region.

He said he would eliminate apathy, unite the Party and reach out to all, especially the youth, chiefs, farmers, market women and cadres to reposition the Party as the only choice for people in the Region.

Mr Ganyaglo said at a press conference in Ho on Tuesday after he was cleared by the vetting committee to contest the Regional Chairmanship position with two others; Mr Henry Ametepe, immediate past Vice Chairman for the Region and Mr Frank Afriyie on Sunday, June 16, 2019.

He said what made him unique from the other candidates was his expertise in Marketing as a lecturer and administrator, and his character as a listener with integrity to make the Volta Region regain its “enviable” tag of the “World Bank” in the electoral fortunes of the NDC.

Mr Ganyaglo said he would decentralize party campaign to the grassroots through the constituencies, strengthen party structures at all levels and ensure effective resource mobilization and usage.

He said he would organize youth leadership clinics to prepare them for leadership roles and institute a formidable and well-managed welfare scheme for Party members at all levels.

Mr Ganyaglo described himself as time-tested with proven track record in taking the Party from opposition to government, as he did from 2001 to 2009 as the Regional Secretary and urged the delegates to vote for him massively to reorganize the Party for victory in the 2020 general elections.

He said the Regional Chairmanship contest was not about how much a candidate could doll out, making of lofty promises, character assassination or “unnecessary” intra-party fight for relevance, but who could best mobilise resources effectively and deploy them sustainably for collective success in the 2020 elections, and said he was the obvious choice.

“It’s about expertise, experience, passion for grassroots, accountability and teamwork for victory in 2020. These are what I stand for,” Mr Ganyaglo said.
