Flag bearer hopeful of opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Goosie Tanoh on Friday arrived in his home region to begin the second leg of his campaign tour to the Central Region.
Ahead of the recently held 9th National Delegates Congress of the NDC, Mr. Goosie Tanoh toured some Constituencies in the Region to ask delegates to elect him as their flagbearer to secure victory for the party in the 2020 presidential polls.
Already, Goosie Tanoh’S 2020 campaign tour has taken him to some Constituencies in the Volta Region, Greater Accra Region, Upper West Region, Upper East Region, and Northern Region where he enjoyed significant support from voters.
While in the Central region, Mr. Tanoh is expected to canvass for votes at Kasoa, Winneba, Gomoa, Essakyir, Cape Coast, Komenda, Oguaa among others.
He has promised to be a new leader with a new vision rooted in accountability, probity and social justice for the grassroots of the party and the entire citizenry.
Goosie Tanoh says “Real power will return to the grassroots” if he is given the chance to lead the party as flagbearer for the first time.
He believes the party must chart a new path to restore hope to members and create jobs for millions of unemployed Ghanaian youths.
Goosie Tanoh is expected to wrap up his second phase tour of the Central Region on Monday, December 10th.
Meanwhile, the Campaign Team of Goosie Tanoh is expected to pick up nomination forms at the party headquarters in Accra on Saturday.
Goosie Tanoh was very instrumental in a petition signed by nine aspirants which compelled the party hierarchy’s to slash the filing fees from the initial 400,000 Ghana cedis to 300, 000 and also extended the deadline for picking nomination forms to Saturday December 8, 2018 from Tuesday, December 4.
The new date for the election of NDC 2020 flagbearer is now Saturday January 26th 2019.
