The signs appear unsavoury for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Volta Region, from where the Regional Chairman of the Democratic Freedom Party (DFP), Mr. G.K.Q. Ayiih has served notice that the former ruling party is going to lose eleven constituencies.
The chairman, who interacted with DFP's national officers during their visit to the region last week, named the constituencies going to fall to their party as Ho West, Nkwanta North and South, Kete Krachi East and West, Hohoe North and South and others which he said he would keep to himself for strategic reasons.
The visiting national executive of the party held a strategic planning meeting with the Volta Regional executive.
The national executive which included Alhaji Ishmael Bawa, John Ameka, Interim Deputy General Secretary, Finance and Administration, Mr. Osei Piesie Antoh, National Organiser and Hajia Hawawu, Deputy National Women Organiser, probed the extent of preparedness of the regional executive for the task ahead for the party.
The Regional Secretary, Mr. Nuku Dei gave the figure of polling stations in Volta Region as 1,965 and promised that by the time the visiting team returned to the region, “we would have formed branches throughout the region.
”The national executive tasked their regional counterparts to be serious about the formation of branches, which they mentioned were the pillars of the party.
Also discussed was how to supply the regional executives with the needed logistics and funds to carry on with their assignments.
Both parties resolved to undertake clean campaign devoid of insults and acrimonies including unacceptable language.
