Northern NDC delegates endorse Portuphy

Some delegates of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Northern Region have declared their support for Kofi Portuphy, an aspirant for the national chairman of the party.

Their endorsement comes ahead of the NDC’s national delegates’ congress schedule for Saturday in Kumasi.

“We, the executives of the Northern Region constituencies of the NDC will openly like to declare our support for Kofi Portuphy for the national chairman’s position,” the group stated.

Mr. Iddirisu Sampah, the Gambaga/Nalerigu constituency secretary of NDC who read a press statement on behalf of the group said Mr. Portuphy was the best person to lead the party in readiness for the 2016 general elections.

According to the group the 2016 general elections would not be an easy one and that the NDC needed a chairman who can actually work to ensure victory.

Mr. Sampah said the NDC cannot afford to lose the elections and that it was prudent to look for very competent people to steer the affairs of the party.

He added that the party does not only need mere leaders but a leadership that has expertise and energies to reinvigorate the NDC at all levels.

“We need not just a chairman but one that is more credible, more interesting, more concrete, and more persuasive and more experienced in mobilising at the grassroots,” he said.

According to them, Mr. Portuphy’s competencies and ability to handle people make him stand tall among the other candidates.

“Without any hesitation, we are confident that the person whose credentials are in synch with the above attributes and can lead us in the pursuit of this laudable objective is none other than Kofi Portuphy,” he said.

The group thereby appealed to other delegates to vote for Mr. Portuphy to lead the party at this crucial moment.

They also pledged their votes for Kofi Adams as the national organiser, Kamel Noshie as national treasurer, Harry Zakour and Lawyer Mohammed Alhassan as vice-chairman come Saturday.
