The Tataanah North Ward of the opposition National Democratic Congress, NDC, in the Madina Constituency of the Greater Accra region, has elected new branch executives to lead the branch of the party for the next four years.
The Twelve (12) branches of the Ward election, were supervised by the Constituency executives of the party and were generally smooth and peaceful.
The election of officers to lead the party at the branch level, which is the first leg in the series of internal elections of the NDC, have been divided into four zones namely; Northern, Middle, and Southern, with the Ashanti and Eastern regions making up the fourth zone.
In his welcome address at the gathering to swear-in the newly elected executives on Sunday, August 7, the Madina Constituency Secretary of the NDC, Abdul Razak Hussein Niche, took the executives-elect through the process of the swearing-in and the purpose of the gathering.
According to him, executives who are to take the oath of office, must be ready to serve before they submit themselves and charged them to be committed, dedicated, and hardworking branch executives to help propel the party to win power in 2024.
Mr Niche, said the exercise was crucial for the party to win the election in 2024 and there is a need for them to be competent and reliable from all the branches to change the fortunes of the party in the 2024 polls for the victory of the NDC.
“If you know you don’t have time, refrain from taking the oath of office. The focus of the branch executives should be about winning election 2024,” he stressed.
On his part, the Madina Constituency Chairman of the party, Abdul Rahman Abdul Rahim, who administered the oath of office, urged the newly elected executives to work within the rules and regulations of the party.
He said the party, therefore needed sacrificial and selfless supporters, who would never relent in their efforts to wrestle power from the governing New Patriotic Party, NPP, in 2024.
Mr Rahim, admonished the executives not to use the position to do business with the NPP, but rather work in unity, to defeat the NPP in the 2024 general election, adding that; if you are an executive and you go contrary to the dictates of the party, you will be sacked not suspended.
“Don’t let your loyalty be with any single individual, but with NDC, they are responsibilities attached to the position you are holding,” he bemoaned.
He reminded all the branch executives that any branch that is not performing, will be dissolved and urged them to guide against internal bitterness to enable to win in the upcoming general elections convincingly to bring change and new hope into the political landscape.
He concluded by, saying “Ghanaians will not forgive NDC If it fails to win election 2024 to rescue them from the hardship, economic mismanagement, and the corruption that have engulfed the country.”
He was of the view that considering the economic hardship of the ordinary Ghanaian electorate is going through, there is a clear indication that the ordinary Ghanaian wants the NDC to take political power come 2024.
The swearing-in attracted many dignitaries, including Constituency Chairman, Abdul Rahman Abdul Rahim, Constituency Vice Chairman, Alhaji Foster, Constituency Secretary, Abdul Razak Hussein Niche, and Constituency Organizer Anani Adjeigah.
The rest were, Deputy Communication Officer, Justice Tengey, Charles Mortey, as the Youth Organizer, Ward Coordinator, Prosper Nyaho, Constituency Women Organiser and Alhaji Foster, an Executive member.
