Strengthen branches for victory 2020 - Ofosu Ampofo
Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has tasked constituency executives to focus on strengthening branches of the party as part of efforts to win power in 2020.
He said the party’s chances of winning the impending election largely depended on a vibrant grass root committed to the cause of the party.
The national chairman was speaking at a fundraising activity organized by the Asante-Akim South Constituency branch of the party to mobilize resources to prosecute the 2020 electioneering campaign.
It was attended by party members across the constituency as well as some regional and national executives.
Mr. Ampofo underlined the need for the branch executives to touch base with the electorate and explain why the NDC was the better option ahead of the general election next year.
This, he said, required effective communication strategy tailored to suit various segments of the society and implored the communication directorates to play an active role to that effect.
He charged the constituency executives to work hard to improve the performance of the party in the constituency in 2020, adding that, appreciation of the party’s votes in strongholds of the ruling party would increase their chances.
Mr. Ibrahim Musa, the Constituency Chairman said the executives were battle ready for the 2020 election and were committed to embarking on a rigorous campaign to return the party to power.
He said the fundraising exercise being held to raise funds two years ahead of the general election demonstrated their quest to win power.
He commended the regional and national executives for their presence and assured them of the readiness of the constituency to improve its performance in both the parliamentary and presidential votes.
