The Member of Parliament for Ellembelle, Mr Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, has confidently declared the readiness of the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) to build a solid foundation in her bid to wrestle political power from the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) in the next general elections.
He said the NDC continues to welcome members who went astray during the 2016 elections and those members were willing to help the Party to put up a formidable front to contest and win the 2020 elections.
Mr Buah said this when he addressed about 1,128 delegates in the Ellembelle Constituency, who converged at the YINSON Hall of the Nkroful Agricultural School to elect new Constituency Executives to steer affairs of the Party for another term.
He described the elections as a critical stage in the re-organanization of the Party and appealed to the delegates to ‘elect committed executives who would go all out to win the heart and soul of Ellembelle’.
Mr Buah said the NDC had done her homework with respect to the defeat in the 2016 elections.
He said the NDC would salvage Ghanaians from the economic doldrums adding that “after the NDC left power, Ghana came to a standstill”.
The outgoing Chairman of the NDC in Ellembelle, Mr Kwesi Berveh who had been in office 12 years, said he supported the Party with his personal resources to rally behind the current MP to win three consecutive times.
He lauded the MP for the rapid development of Ellembelle, adding that “he was next to Dr Kwame Nkrumah”.
Mr Berveh said he would rally behind the new Chairman and his team to deliver the “goods” in December 2020.
