The council of elders and cadres of the opposition National Democratic Congress in the Upper West Region have happily endorsed the candidature of Mr. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin in the upcoming NDC presidential primaries.
The Nadowli/Kaleo legislator met the two groups as part of his three-day tour of the Upper West Region.
In his address, Mr Bagbin explained the motive behind his bid to contest the upcoming NDC primaries.
According to him, the NDC party needed rebranding in order to attract Ghanaians and give voters an alternative to the ruling New Patriotic Party. Mr. Alban Bagbin promised to work with the “grass root” party supporters and elders to bring hope to Ghanaians, most especially those who truly served the party and country yet have been neglected.
This attracted loud cheers and applause from the fascinated party supporters who had gathered to listen to the presidential hopeful.
A former regional organizer & current administrator of the regional NDC Secretariat Alhaji Rahman Jamatutu together with Mr. Adams, Chairman of Cadre in the region, who spoke on behalf of the council of elders and Cadres respectively, thank Mr Bagbin for recognizing and honoring them with such a meeting.
Mr Jamatutu particularly thanked the 2nd deputy speaker for his relentless efforts in maintaining the Secretariat. Some participants who took turns to address the meeting lamented over what they described as neglect and disregard for their toil and service to the NDC party over the years.
They promised their individual and collective support for a “son” who has paid his dues to the party and Ghana as a whole. ‘Adepa wo? fie Oye’ is the comforting phrase to the aspirant as he continues his tour of the region.
