NDC ready for victory in 2012 elections – Vivian Ankrah
Miss Vivian Ankrah, Greater Accra Regional Women Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has said the party has strengthened its structures to facilitate mobilization of women for resounding victory in the 2012 polls.
Miss Ankrah made the statement at the inauguration of a Women Committee of women organizers from the nine wards of the party in the Klottey Korley Constituency to undertake serious campaign towards the 2012 Election.
She said, “We are going on a massive campaign that would strengthen the activities of women throughout the country to encourage the majority of them to vote wisely.”
She said the NDC had maintained its women activists and that had resulted in attracting more women into the party.
Miss Ankrah said the administration of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) disappointed Ghanaians with its property owning and greedy policies and worsened the plight of the citizenry.
She said the Better Ghana Agenda initiated by the late President John Evans Atta Mills had brought hope and opportunities to Ghanaians to retain the NDC in government so as to continue with its good programmes.
The Regional Women Organizer called for unity among all women in the party to ensure total victory in the 2012 general election.
Hajia Mariam Sinare, a leading member of the NDC, dismissed the assertion that the party was not for Muslims as being propagated by the NPP and stressed; “We have always involved Muslims in every aspect of our activities and called on Ghanaians to treat those comments as frivolous and baseless.”
She added that the NDC had the affairs of the Muslims at heart and would never ignore them in the campaign towards winning the 2012 Election, adding that “Muslims will make peace their objective in the 2012 general elections.”
Miss Safura Yahaya, Klottey Korley Constituency Women Organizer, said the NPP had nothing new to offer the people and asked women to vote against them.
Nii Armah Ashietey, the incumbent Member of Parliament for the area said, members of the party in the constituency were living witnesses to the numerous development projects he had brought to the area and his performance as the Greater Accra Regional Minister.
He said projects, which he supported were evenly distributed in the constituency and also facilitated the employment of a number of people in both private and public sectors.
The MP explained that these initiatives by him had brightened the party’s chances and urged the electorate to vote for him to continue the Better Ghana Agenda.
