John Nyaaba, a Deputy Regional Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Upper East Region, has called for redefinition of the party’s organisation at the grassroots to galvanise votes and return the opposition party to power.
He noted that the position of organiser was very critical in every political party since “the organiser happens to be the field operations officer who goes into the trenches to embark on a membership drive, recruit, train and ensure high turnout anytime the party is involved in an election.”

According to him, “the NDC, is still doing well, but statistically, our votes gets lower, which means that we need to redefine party organisation in the region,” he cautioned and appealed to delegates to give him the opportunity to serve the party.

Mr Nyaaba who spoke in an interview at Zuarungu prior to his vetting, indicated that one of the reasons why the party lost some votes in the region was partly due to the regional executives interference at the polling station and the constituency level.

“When you give people positions and you do not allow them to work, there is that apathy which I want to avoid that.

“I will collaborate with other executives to create resources and logistics unit” at the regional office which will be headed by the regional organiser as well as all constituency organizers, and insist that such an initiative will create transparency in resource distribution across constituencies towards proper planning,” Mr Nyaaba assured. -GNA
