NDC functionaries urged to be good ambassadors


Mr George Addo Opare, National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for the Okere Constituency, in last year's general election has called on functionaries of the party to be good ambassadors wherever they find themselves.

He urged them to attract more people to the party and ensure that the party is retained in future elections.

Mr Opare was addressing party supporters at Adukrom-Akuapem on Wednesday, after attending a thanksgiving service organized by the party at the Adukrom Presbyterian Church.

He advised members of the party, who would be given political appointments “to always bear in mind that they owe their positions first to the electorates who voted the party into power and their welfare should be their major concern”.

Mr Opare called for the re-organization of the structures of the party in the constituency to enable it to have a solid foundation for future elections.

The Eastern Regional Organizer of the party, Mr Bismarck Tawiah-Boateng, said the party appreciated the hard work done in the constituency by the late Fuzzy Torbay who was the NDC Member of Parliament (MP) for the area from 1992 to 2000 and promised that the party would be continuing those good works.

The Constituency Chairman of the party, Mr Douglas Adjei, said the Okere Constituency was not a strong hold of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and with determination; the party could win the constituency back.

He urged supporters of the party in the constituency to open up and welcome people from other political parties into their fold, adding that, politics is about numbers.
