The Ho Central branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has launched operation 80,000 votes for President John Mahama and the Parliamentary candidate, Benjamin Kpodo at Klefe in the Ho Municipality.
The launching which was organised by Klefe Ward coordinator of the NDC, Delali Kasu, is part of efforts to promote a high turnout of NDC supporters in the constituency during the December 7 elections.
Mr. John Gyapong, the regional chairman, addressing the enthusiastic crowd, admonished supporters of Ho Central to tap into the wealth of experience and support from the regional executives to ensure that Ho Central increases from 62,000 in 2012 to 80,000 in December, 7.
He said the target set would be achieved by unity and hard work in the run-up to the elections but expressed worry of apathy that seem to be creeping into the fold of party supporters in the region and there was the need to curb it.
Mr. Gyapong said the only solution is for all supporters to come out that day in their numbers to vote massively for the party for total victory.
Mr. Kpodo, who is seeking re-election, touted his achievements in the areas of education, health, roads, agriculture and support to women and girls among other interventions.
He said it was no wonder that he has been named in the constituency as “All the votes’ by his constituents and deserves a second term.
Mr. Egypt Kudoto, Regional Youth Organiser, reminded the gathering that the Progressive People’s Party selected a running mate from the Volta Region to partner Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom to get votes so as not to meet our target to give some advantage to the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He however said a vote for PPP in the region is a vote for NPP and reminded supporters about this development.
Mrs. Fafa Adinyrah, Ho Municipal Chief Executive, urged the people to realise the numerous developments ongoing in the municipality and give a second term to the party to continue with the good work.
Togbui Sape, a divisional chief of Klefe, pledged their unflinching support for the party and called on those seeking leadership positions to continue to relate to the people.
