The National Women’s Organiser for the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Dr Louisa Hanna Bissiw, has called on party members to unite for victory in the upcoming 2020 elections.
Dr Bissiw who defeated three other contenders at the party’s delegates’ congress over the weekend said all efforts must be channelled into facing the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2020.
The former Deputy Agric Minister in the erstwhile John Mahama administration made the remark in her victory speech in the Central Region.
She said: “We’re still together, to us, it was an internal election and, so, nobody lost and nobody won, NDC won and NPP lost. Come 2020, as a team we shall go to the battle and bring back victory.”
Dr Bissiw won with 446 votes to depose the incumbent Hajia Zaynab Mahama who had 252 votes.
The other contenders, Hajia Tawa Zakari and Margaret Chiravira, managed to get 16 and 11 votes, respectively.
