The two day campaign tour would afford the NDC Presidential Candidate to interact with the fisher folks in the region and to sell his ideas towards 2020 to them.
Mr Jerry Johnson, Regional Communication Officer of the party told Modernghana, via phone interview that, the former President who is yet to officially launch his 2020 campaign would tour the coastal constituencies including Ada, Sege, Ningo Prampram, Kpone Katamanso, Krowor, Ledzokuku and Odododiodio
Beside the Chiefs, opinion leaders and party elders, the Regional Communication Officer said, the NDC leader would also have interaction with drivers, fish muggers, market women and traders as well as fishermen at the beaches.
“The flagbearer will be interacting with community leaders, fisher folks and other key stakeholders,” Jerry Johnson stated.

Currently, the NDC is occupying 13 out of the 34 parliamentary seats in the Greater Accra Region, haven ceded seven of its 20 seats in 2016 to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Nevertheless, the NDC regional officer said, the party is leaving stone unturned to snatch back all lost seats at the 2020 general elections and as well maximize votes for the Presidential candidate.
He however urged party faithful and sympathizes to rally behind the Flagbearer to ensure resounding victory come 2020.
The NDC, he noted is the only political party with the nation at heart to bring development, alleging that, with over two years in office, the NPP is yet to fulfill the sweetheart promises they made to Ghanaians.
He expressed confidence that, with unity and hard work, the NDC would rescue Ghanaians from the untold economic hardship they are undergoing under President Akufo Addo and his123 ministers and countless appointees.
