Sensitization towards digitization and issuing of cards to members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has kicked started across the country.
The NDC is taking positive steps to assist members to acquire the party’s membership card with much ease across the country as the party sets modalities for its party level electioneering activities ahead of the 2024 general elections.
A team led by the a Deputy National Elections Director, Mr Daniel Amartey Mensah in an interview with a Community Radio, PADFM 95.1mhz in Damongo, Savannah regional capital, on January 18, 2022, revealed the NDC party cards are basically giving at the branch level where members vote. There won’t be new registration for new members in the phase one of the exercise.
Daniel Amartey stated that the cards are in two categories; an electronic card where a member can apply online for the card, using membership number on the paper card at a cost of GHc20 and the other option is paper card which can be received instantly at a cost of GHc2 only.
Mr. Daniel Amartey said the party’s current membership card expired in December 2020, hence the need to travel across all the regions but Eastern and Ashanti to sensitize leadership on the modalities to get the card. The exercise is for only members who already have their names in the party’s branch registers with membership cards and not new persons joining the party.
A registration team in charge of the electronic cards is expected to be in the Savannah region for the process to kick start.
On the party’s reorganization steps, Daniel Amartey said there are few areas in the country where the performance of the party was poor in the last elections, which saw some seats occupied by the party being taken over by the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He assured the publics that good efforts are being made to take back those seats with John Mahama as the leader of the party in the 2024 elections.
He appealed to members of the party to eagerly take part in the exercise so that the party wins the 2024 general elections.
Some Members of Parliament, ex-MPs, party leaders, youth, in the Savannah region were present during the meeting in Damongo.
The Savannah regional Secretary of the NDC, Mr Salisu Be-awuribe has appealed to NDC members in the region to replace their membership cards starting from Wednesday, 19th January, 2022.
First National Vice Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Chief Sofo Awudu Azorka has accused the Damongo Constituency Member of Parliament (MP) Hon Samuel Abu Jinapor of using Covud-19 funds meant to address challenges of the virus to win the seat.
Abu Jinapor defeated NDC’s Adam Mutawakilu in the 2020 general elections with over 2,000 votes. Chief Azorka said the party is preparing to win the seat back, labelling the Damongo seat as a Covid-19 seat which was bought through huge busing of people into the constituency and promised, the NDC shall win the seat in 2024 general elections.
The former Northern region chairperson of NDC insist that even upon the use of the Covid-19 money, the difference was not much with John Mahama still beating Nana Akuffo-Addo in the Damongo Constituency.
He urged the people of the Damongo Constituency and all the seven constituencies in the Savannah region to remain united and work very hard towards capturing power in 2024.
On the security of the speaker of Parliament, Chief Azorka said the Alban Bagbin is an experienced and intelligent man in politics who knows very much about his personal security and capable of protecting himself and protecting his personal body guards when there is danger.
He argued the NPP can not frighten the speaker since he is a veteran politician.
