The incumbent National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo has given reasons why he should be maintained going into the party’s national executive officers election.
He told Alfred Ocansey on 3FM Sunrise Morning Show Monday July 18 that the current national executive officers of the NDC led the party in opposition to come from a parliamentary deficit of
“Myself and my other executives were entrusted with this party in 2018 at the time we had gone into election in 2016 and lost by over one million votes.
“We lost by over fifty three votes in parliament and then we worked very hard within that short period and improved our votes by over two million votes. We were able to increase our parliamentary seats from 106 to 137” he touted.
Mr. Ofosu-Ampofo further argued that but for the fact that the military were used to interfere and influence the counting of the election results at some coalition centers, the NDC would have won the 2020 election and taken extra five seats.
He added that for the first time in Ghana’s political history, under his leadership, Ghana has a hung parliament and for the first time under the fourth republic we have gotten a Speaker of Parliament from an opposition party.
“There is a lot that we can pride ourselves in, we have brought unity in the party , there is cohesion in the party and even the death of the founder of the party could not prevent us from performing the way we have performed ” he mentioned
He concluded that the party is well set for victory in 2024 and believes that his administration has performed very well by taking the party from one level to a higher level.
Therefore, given the experiences that we’ve had and the various researches we have conducted after the 2020 election, we are going to ensure that we win a monumental victory in the 2024 election such that we will not have to go to the supreme court. “And I believe that I can continue to provide that leadership” Mr. Ofosu-Ampofo emphasised
