South African Chairman of the National Democratic Congress Council of Elders, Mr. Benjamin Quashie has commended the NDC party for organising a successful election.
He congratulated Mr. George Opare Addo and Dr. Hannah Bissiw for retaining the National Youth Organiser and Women’s Organiser positions respectively.
According to him, retaining seats such as these in the NDC aren’t easy and all he can do is to part the back of the winners and wish the losers better luck next time. He took the opportunity to applaud his chapter chairman, Mohammed Bukarri for organizing all SA team members to come to Ghana to part take in the NDC election process.
In his view, the NDC party has always given the youth and women massive support to develop themselves and explore their political careers and it’s no surprise that the members have rallied their support for Mr. Opare and Madam Bissiw.
Speaking in an interview to Rev. Nyansa Boakwa in South Africa, he underscored the fact that, no one influences the decision of the youth to choose a leader for the NDC and the party have accepted the new leaders who are very ready to kick start their campaign and rescue this country from the inept and super incompetent New Patriotic Party government.
In an election held at the Examination Hall of University of Cape Coast, Dr. Hanna Louisa Bissiw beat her closest contender by 433 to 362 valid votes cast to retain the National Women’s Organiser position while Mr. George Opare Addo also defeated his sole contender, Yaw Brogya Genfi by obtaining 533 votes to 508 to retain Youth Organiser positions of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Meanwhile, the NDC will hold the next phase of its National Delegates Conference next week Saturday 17th December, 2022 to elect a new National Chairman, Vice Chairpersons, General Secretary and other officers to occupy other national portfolios of the party.
Meanwhile, the NDC South African chapter’s ‘Operation 100 boreholes initiative in Ayensuano Constituency in the Eastern Region of Ghana is progressing.
