‘NDC determined to win Assin South seat’

 The National Democratic Congress (NDC), in the Assin South Constituency is determined to win the seat in the 2024 parliamentary and presidential elections through numerous engagements with grassroots supporters.

The NDC has therefore outdoored a project dubbed, “Agenda win the Assin South seat at all cost” at a colourful event at AssinBesease.

The maiden event was held in collaboration with the women’s wing of the party in the constit­uency and repeated in all the 25 electoral areas.

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency, Mr Thomas Cob­binah, Assin South Constituency Chairman of the NDC, said about 90 per cent of members should participate in the upcoming assem­bly election and use it as a litmus test to determine the strength of the party.

He told the teeming supporters of the party to guard against ‘hear­say’ and build an effective com­munication system in the party to help attract members from the opposite side to join them, since politics was all about numbers.

MrCobbinah encouraged the grassroots and foot soldiers in the constituency to contribute an amount of GH¢5.00 each towards the full operation of “Agenda win the Assin South seat at all cost”.

He personally donated GH¢200.00 as a seed money to­wards the operation and promised to pay GH¢200.00 every month.

Mr Cobbinah admonished all to allow peace to prevail in the party. MrsNuzrat Ahmed, Women Organiser for the constituency, charged the members to remain resolute and champion the good cause of the party for victory in the upcoming election.

The Assin South constituen­cy is located in the Assin South District of the Central Region of Ghana.

The current Member of Par­liament (MP) is John NtimFord­jour who had 17,121 representing 39.25 per cent as against the opposition NDC candidate, who obtained 10,201votes presenting 23.38 per cent, in the 2020 parlia­mentary poll.
