Former Transport Minister and aspiring Volta Regional chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Dzifa Aku Ativor, has officially launched her campaign to annex the much coveted executive slot of the party in the region.
At a ceremony held at the Ho Central Market yesterday August 13, Madam Dzifa Attivor asserted that it was time the party got a dedicated and affable member who has stood the test of time over many years of reputable service to the party and region in various capacities.
Declaring her motivation and aspirations at the launch of the campaign, the Former Transport Minister said she would bring her years of experience to reposition the NDC in Volta Region.
Addressing a teeming crowd of market women, sympathizers and party delegates, Madam Dzifa Attivor noted that the NPP in opposition made promises to transform Ghana but it is currently destroying the solid foundation laid by former president John Dramani Mahama and the NDC.
She expressed discontent about the mood in Ghana today, stating that all Ghanaians, including NPP members, can attest to the fact that Ghanaians today are living in the worse period ever and the most incompetent government in the fourth republic.
“Our women in the Ho market, Jemeni, Asafo and Aboabo market in Tamale are in the state. Our shallot farmers in Anloga, our tomato farmers in Ziope are ready to vote for the NDC in 2020” She added.
She therefore saw the urgent need for the NDC to put its house together in order to compete strongly in the 2020 general elections, adding that the NDC deserves the kind of leadership that can build the party to stand the test of time.
Madam Dzifa Attivor said her paramount objectives for running for the position is to unite the NDC, attract first time voters, get women to be part of the NDC in the Region, give hope to the branches of the party as well as build a strong partnership with the media in the region.
She expressed her readiness to work with all identifiable groups in the Region in order to push the Social Democratic agenda.
