Hon Ganyaglo further assured delegates that, when elected, his administration would not necessarily depend on national for logistics but rather lead the constituencies to mobilise funds through internal party activities in order to rejuvenate the party in the region and grassroot before campaign begins.
Also, he promised the executives that, his administration will institute a welfare scheme in various constituencies to give life support to party members.
