Aspiring NDC executive pledges to revitalise branches
A National Democratic Congress (NDC) activist seeking to become the First Regional Vice Chairman of the party in the Ashanti Region, Alhaji Nje Umar, has indicated that he is targeting to revitalise the branches to be battle ready for the 2024 general election.
“The victory of the party hinges on activeness of the branches and the reorganisation agenda of the party must strategically focus on strengthening the branches since we stand a better chance of winning the 2024 elections,” he said.
Alhaji Umar noted that it was imperative for the party to strengthen its local structures ahead of the crucial elections because the branches were the base of the party with the mandate to protecting every single ballot at the polling station and training and resourcing them was critical to its electoral fortunes.
“I am part of a team visiting the various constituencies within the region as part of our outreach programme and I have realised some of our branches are not active and I believe urgent steps must be taken to revive them for the battle ahead and practice of sending external party members, supporters and sympathisers to support and assist the branches during elections was good but equipping the branch executives was the best due to their knowledge of the local politics.
“I will personally adopt some of the polling stations across the region and nurture them to be effective and efficient in mobilising the support base of the NDC and bring fresh ideas on board to energise the party in the stronghold of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) by improving on the party’s performance in the Ashanti Region which can go a long way to securing victory,” Alhaji Umar intimated and expressed the hope to join the leadership of the NDC in the region to prosecute that agenda. -GNA
