I will make NPP attractive for 2020- UER NPP Chairman aspirant

2728487624993_4571184810820 Upper East Regional New Patriotic Party (NPP) Chairman hopeful, Agongo Joseph, says he would build the party’s structures and rebrand it through investment and agriculture to position it for victory in the 2020 elections.

Mr. Agongo, a former Presiding Member of the Bolgatanga Municipal Assembly, who announced his intention to contest for the position, made these observations here, in Bolgatanga, in an interview on Saturday.

This brings to four the number of candidates who have declared their intention to contest for the Regional Chairmanship position.

According to him, a membership drive project to increase the party’s support base was key for the party’s victory in the December 2020 parliamentary and presidential election.

In view of this, Mr. Agongo said he had developed a strategy that would enable the party to garner more votes for the party to catapult it to victory.

Mr. Agongo who attributed the poor performance of the party in the region, particularly in the area of the parliamentary election during the last election, to the lack of unity among some members of the party and weak party structures at the polling stations, the constituency and the regional levels promised to make them vibrant if he gets the nod.

He stated that among his vision was to help build a very attractive party in the region devoid of self-interest and to also work towards winning more floating voters to the party.

“As somebody who had ever been a Presiding Member and four terms elected District Assembly Member for the Kumbosigo electoral area, the Chairman of Patrons of the Bolgatanga East Constituency among others, I think I have the experiences to bring to bear to help achieve these set targets for the party,” he noted.

The Aspirant noted that should he  be given the nod, his focus would not only  be geared towards building the party to win power , but to build the human resource base of the party in all the  fifteen constituencies of the region.

He mentioned that another area of concern to him was the employment situation indicating that he would together with other stakeholders build database of all unemployed in the constituencies so as to lobby and search for jobs for such person.

“Avenues such as the Planting for Food and Jobs, the One village, One dam among other government’s interventions will all be explored to help get jobs for the teaming unemployed,” he stressed.

Speaking on some of the contributions he had made to the party’s development, the aspirant noted that apart from contributing towards the major presidential and parliamentary elections, he had been contributing money every month to the Bolgatanga East constituency including settling the debt of the party’s office accommodation at the Bolgatanga East Constituency.
