The incumbent National Chairman of the main opposition party, the NDC, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo is calling for unity in the party ahead of the 2024 general elections.
To him, the current misunderstandings surrounding the incoming national executive elections are not a good posture for a party seeking electoral victory.
Speaking in an interview on Accra FM, the chairman seeking re-election stressed that victory can only be achieved by a united party.
“We chant war songs and expect to win the 2024 general elections, we would lose the elections miserably if we stay on this tangent,” he said.
“We can only win an election by adopting pragmatic strategies,” he stressed.
On the "Ghana Yensom" morning show, he boasted that his well-planned and executed strategies had increased the party's support base and parliamentary seats significantly.
“My strategies have increased the NDC's support base from 4.8 million voters to 6.3 million voters and captured 53 lost seats in the last election."
With all these achievements, he said, “So, common sense stands to reason, I am the best to lead the party.”
According to him, all of his contenders in the championship race have done nothing worthy of leading the party with the positions they are holding or have held previously.
“All those who are claiming they can do better today as National Chairman were coordinators of committees, and what did they do"? he asked.
The NDC is preparing to elect their new executives to wrestle power from the ruling NPP on December 17, 2022.
The chairmanship is in a tight spot as the current General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia challenges the incumbent Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.
