Margaret Kwaku, a former Municipal Chief Executive of the Hohoe Municipal

Constituency of the Volta Region.
The five others who also filed their

Mr Kingsley Mortey after filing his
nomination in an address described himself as competent to lead the NDC in the
2020 general elections in the constituency.

Mr Francis Dimake also said his commitment
to the Party and the crucial roles he played at the grassroots showed his
preparedness to serve and win more votes for the NDC.

between party executives was giving the mandate to a “true grassroots
person” who had served the people, understood their problems and was
willing to offer effective solutions.

Dzimegah and Dr Kennedy Ahorsu.
