The Western North branch of United Cadre’s Front of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has called on all party folks to rise up and work assiduously to recapture power come 2024 general elections.
This comes after several complaints hav been made to the United Cadre’s Front to start organizing NDC members, else the votes that were garnered by the party is completely diminishing.
Mr S.P Adamu , the Former PNDC Deputy Regional Secretary, Former Western Regional Minister and Former two term Member of Parliament for Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai Constituency announced this at their stakeholders meeting held at Sefwi Bekwai to access the performance of their leaders in the area and to address the challenges confronting the party and also help improve upon their performance to win political power come 2024.
He said the time has come for members of the NDC to revisit past Presidential and Parliamentary elections results to enhance them to work extra harder to recapture the Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai seat from the NPP come 2024.
According to him, the seat was for National Democratic Congress Party until the 2004 elections when the New Partrotic Party took over from them and that the time had come for the NDC to take back the seat.
He said that looking at the various constituencies results from Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai Sefwi Wiawso, Akontombra , Bia East, Bia West, Juaboso and Sefwi Bodi Presidential votes was the worst since 1992 due to the party inability to provide competent leaders at the constituencies and the regional level to steer affairs of the party.
Mr Adamu also stressed that there was indiscipline, lack of unity, apathy and undermining candidates in the region which goes to the extent to affect former President, Mr John Mahama chances of winning 2020 election.And we cadres of Western North Region still believe Mr.John Dramani Mahama to win 2024.
Former District Chief Executive (DCE), for Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai on the ticket of opposition NDC, Mr Jacob Oware, said the leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Western North Region must be changed and bring leaders who have people at heart and good qualities that can help the NDC party to restore glories.
Some of the United Cadre’s Front members call on the leadership to join hands since the party is sinking in the Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai Constituency and Western North as a whole and to come together.
