Let’s step up home visitations to return NDC to power – Avedzi

James Avedzi, Ketu North Member of Parliament (MP), has called for unity in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) towards the 2020 elections, by closing their ranks.

“Though victory is beckoning in next year’s elections, due to failure of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government to reduce abject poverty, the NDC will miss victory if it fails to do its homework,” Mr Avedzi noted.

He appealed to all to forgive and forget the past, particularly with the 2016 defeat, describing the NDC as a family of people who knew how to set issues behind and rise to conquer.

Mr Avedzi was addressing a rally to climax a programme by the Aflao NDC zonal branch to reactivate its structures to get poised for 2020 elections at Aflao, with a night vigil to seek divine intervention for the party and nation as part of the highlights.

He indicated that “the party will step up its home and market visitations to educate people on the need to return NDC to power, party faithful to keep identifying, wooing potential supporters by selling party ideas to them as early as 15 and 16 years old, assist them to register as voters while turning 18 to help beef up the support base of the party ever”.

Mr Avedzi also called for vigilance in next year’s elections at polling centres, saying, “Elections are won at polling centres, from where the Electoral Commission (EC) only collates figures to declare in Accra.”

Kwesi Bedzra, Ho West MP, commended the Aflao branch for their rally to draw support for the party, and noted that Ketu South, was an important NDC support base, minus of which reference of Volta Region as the party’s voting ‘World Bank’ reduces to a mere ‘rural bank’.

Henry Ametepe, Deputy Volta Regional Chairman, cautioned against using the forthcoming parliamentary primary to foment factionalism and any parliamentary primary candidate who would bring the image of the party to disrepute, would be disqualified at regional level.

James Gunu, the Volta Regional Secretary of NDC, urged all persons turning 18 years and first-time voters, to register in the limited voter registration exercise, when the Electoral Commission finally opens to enable them vote in next year’s elections, and urged all to take part in the ongoing Ghana card registration exercise to make them eligible in national activities. -GNA
