Former MCE Eyes G/Accra NDC Chairmanship

Mr. Daniel Amartey-Mensah, immediate past Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Ledzokuku-Krowor, says he is poised to win the Greater-Accra Regional Chairmanship position of the National Democratic Congress.

He said that he had an enviable track record regarding performance in the party, and that would surely make him win the election on Sunday.

Recounting his past achievements,the former MCE said between 1995 and 1999, he was the Constituency Treasurer of the NDC at Ledzokuku, and was elected Assembly member of Tsui-Bleoo Electoral Area   in 1998, a position he held until 2002.

Mr Amartey said as a result of his hard work in the constituency, he was   elected   the Constituency Chairman from 2005 to 2009, and at the same time Coordinator of the Kpeshie Co-ordinating Council between 2006 and 2009.

With the vast experience acquired, coupled with his previous appointment as the Municipal Chief Executive in 2009, he stands tall among all other contestants to win the election.

The former MCE claimed that the incumbent Regional Chairman, Mr. Joseph Ade Coker has not delivered to the best of his ability and for that matter must not be considered for another term.

According to him, out of the 34 constituency chairmen in the region, 27 had been kicked out in the last constituency elections in September this year, with only seven retaining their seats..

He mentioned that, in 2012, the newly created constituencies in the region were seven, yet the party won only two of the seven seats, a situation he described as appalling.

He said Mr. Ade Coker promised to build a regional office complex in his first 100 days in office, which is yet to be fulfilled.

He stated that,” a more viable individual whose works are tried and tested must be given the nod to man the affairs of the region, and to rally the needed support for the party”.

Mr. Amartey-Mensah assured members and supporters of the party in the region that under his chairmanship, he would work hard to ensure that NDC sweeps the entire 34 constituency seats in the region,in 2016 and stressed the need for the rank and file of the party to close their ranks, so that with a united front they could go into the general elections with confidence.
