Ahead of the impending Volta Regional elections of the Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Luqman Dawood, an activist of the NDC has through a statement, endorsed the candidature of former North Dayi MP, Hon George Loh, for Regional Vice Chairman.
The NDC Activist chronicled several reasons why delegates must choose Hon George Loh against other contestants.
The impending elections in Volta and Oti region have become necessary following the creation of the new regions.
Hon George Loh contested in the Regional elections held last year and lost to the current regional Secretary, Mr James Gunu. But haven presented himself again to run for the Vice Chairmanship position in the region, many including the NDC Activist Mr Luqman Dawood has called on delegates to consider the perseverance, dedication and commitment of Mr George Loh and vote for him as the Regional Vice Chairman.
The NDC Activist indicated that the presence of Hon George Loh in the Regional Executives Committee would boost the confidence of resource providers and also serve as a serious threat to the ruling NPP in the region and beyond.
He also described him as a pragmatic and honest leader who believe in youth empowerment and mentorship.
He reiterated the need for the party in the region to have a lawyer in the caliber of Hon George Loh “work on all legal matters that may confront REC, NEC, Branches as well as their members”.
The NDC Activist finally appealed to the delegates to vote massively for Mr George Loh as the Regional Vice Chairman to “help bridge the gap between the youth and elderly”.
