NDC Digs Into Early Campaign


    THE RULING National Democratic Congress (NDC), as part of strategies to win the 2012 polls, has adopted early campaign methods to outwit their opponents.
    The party has therefore authorized all its members across the country to start zealous campaign, starting from January 1, 2011, so as to enable it find it easier to retain the political seat.
    Joseph Yammin, the Ashanti Regional Scribe of the NDC who disclosed this to DAILY GUIDE in an interview, said the party had no time to waste with regards to campaigning to win the next elections.
    He disclosed that the NDC would, latest by February 2011, come out with documented evidence of laudable and landmark achievements chalked by the President Mills administration within a spate of two years. In line with this, he announced that the party hierarchy is currently putting in place a comprehensive programme to outline the numerous achievements of the government.
    President Mills’ achievements, he noted, would be used by the party as a message to lure more voters to join the NDC to continue with their effectual policies and programmes for the country.
    Until the party comes out with a comprehensive programme, Yammin entreated the party faithful to start telling their friends and even work mates about the good work the government has done.
    He mentioned construction of school blocks, plans to build an ultra modern eye clinic at KATH in Kumasi and smooth works at the Asokwa and Sofolone interchange projects as some of the visible works of the government in the Ashanti region. Yammin was full of hope that the NDC administration would retain political power in 2012 based on its good works and ‘Better Ghana’ agenda, but warned party members against complacency.
    He said proper campaign, whereby all and sundry would actively be seen selling the party to other voters, especially the floating voters, would lessen the work of the party. Yammin used the occasion to wish President Mills and his vice as well as all Ghanaians a happy new year, urging Ghanaians to work harder in 2011.
