The General Secretary of the National Democratic Party (NDP), Alhaji Mohammed Frimpong, has called on all members of the party to supports the decision of the ruling government to let Ghanaians elect their own Metropolitan Municipal, and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs). According to him, the main philosophy of the NDP is to give power to the people and hence believe the decision to elect MMDCEs will give true meaning to this philosophy. He has therefore called on all newly elected regional officers of the party to join forces in campaigning for YES votes for the referendum slated for December.
Alhaji Frimpong was speaking at the party’s Eastern Regional Delegates Conference held on Saturday. The NDP has started preparation ahead of the 2020 general election. As such the party has started electing constituency and regional officers who will be managing the affairs of the party as 2020 inches closer.
The party therefore over the weekend held its Eastern Regional conference where new regional officers were elected into office in Koforidua, the Eastern regional Capital. The exercise which was supervised by the Electoral Commission saw 14 newly elected officers being sworn into office.
Speaking to the Eveningmailgh the sidelines of the conference, Apaw Gideon, the newly elected Regional Secretary of the NDP, said the party is going to put measures in place to ensure that they increase their fortunes in the 2020 general elections.
He disclosed that as part of their restructuring agenda, the party is dividing the region into blocks namely; the Kwahu Block, the Akyem Block, the Akuapem Block and the Krobo Block to be able to identify their various strong holds and to also equip Constituency executives with strong campaign messages that are relevant to their blocks. This according to the Regional Secretary is one of the strategies to whip up grassroot support for the party.
