According to Emmanuel Nii Ashimore, the Regional Chairman of the NDC, the party has set strategies to achieve this objective in the 2024 General Elections.
The aim, which has been tagged as Agenda 25 Seats, will increase the parliamentary seats of the NDC from twenty to twenty-five.
“Out of the 14, I can tell you on authority that we are taking five and not just five, we will increase the number as well. That one I can rest assure you based on strategies I won’t mention here. But under my leadership as regional chairman, we have tagged the agenda 25 seats and it shall come to pass. We are adding five to the existing 20 making agenda 25 seats.”Emmanuel Nii Ashimore
Notwithstanding the ambitious nature of the agenda, he expressed his confidence in achieving it. He promised to remind the nation when the party achieves the feat.
“Either I stand here or I stand at the Flagstaff House or Independence Square to prove to you that what I said to you has come to pass.”Emmanuel Nii Ashimore
In addition, Mr. Emmanuel Nii Ashimore urged party members in the region to support the agenda and work diligently towards its realization.
Greater Accra NDC Donates To Support PC Vanguard Foundation
Moreover, in their quest to win five more seats in the Greater Accra Region, the Greater Accra NDC has provided support to the PC’s Support Vanguard Foundation.
The PC’s Support Vanguard Foundation is a group of current and former parliamentary candidates.
While working to campaign in the orphan constituencies, Nii Aryee Ayisi, former parliamentary candidate for the Weija Gbawe Constituency expressed the group’s determination to work towards achieving victory for the NDC in the region.
“This is the first time I have heard a group come in this election process to make a political donation and we are looking forward to going out there, raising more funds and possibly coming and then supporting massively for the 2024 election year.
“So we are to be on the grounds working with every constituency. Starting next month we are drawing up our programs. We will be doing door-to-door, lorry stations to lorry stations, we are going to be doing shops to shops, whatever we can do to mobilize and work so we win the general elections. That is what we are going to do.”Nii Aryee Ayisi
The Greater Accra Region has thirty-four (34) constituencies, all parliamentary seats for grabs. Of the 34 parliamentary seats, the National Democratic Congress held a commanding majority of twenty while the New Patriotic Party had 14 in the 202 General Elections.
In 2016, the New Patriotic Party held the majority with 21 seats, and the National Democratic Congress won 13 seats.
The Greater Accra NDC Agenda 25 Seats in essence will be eying five of these seats in the 2024 General Elections held by the New Patriotic Party. Ablekuma North, Ablekuma South, Amasaman, Anya-Sowutuom, Ayawaso Central, Ayawaso West Wuogon, Dome Kwabenya, Okaikwei South, Tema Central, Bortianor-Ngleshie-Amanfro, Tema West, Trobu, Weija Gbawe and Okaikwei Central.
Notwithstanding to ensure the agenda twenty-five seats succeed, give that the NDC wins only five of the seat mentioned above, it will have to maintain all its current seats in the Greater Accra Region.
The twenty seats include, Ablekuma Central, Ablekuma South, Ada, Adenta, Ashaiman, Ayawaso East, Ayawaso North, Dade Kotopon, Domeabra-Obom, Korley Klotey, Kpone-Katamanso, Krowor, Ledzokuku, Madina, Ningo-Prampram, Odododiodio, Okaikwei North, Sege, Shai Osudoku and Tema East.
