NDC flagbearer hopeful, Sylvester Adinam Mensah received a thunderous and rapturous welcome to Bongo, Bolga Central and Navrongo Constituencies during his tour to the Upper East Region last week.
In his message, Sylvester Mensah expressed disappointment in successive governments’ failure to link the farmers’ day awards to the objective of transforming the structure of the Ghanaian economy by offering agro-processing equipment/machines to farmers as their awards.
Mr Mensah indicated that a change in the concept of awards would ensure value addition, wealth creation, job creation and reduction in post harvest losses to crops such as tomatoes and fruits, among others.
He assured delegates that a new NDC government under his leadership would focus on extensive value addition to agricultural products as well as support for the textile industry in Ghana to meet the high demands of the international market.
He maintained that any flagbearer aspirant who has no strategy for job creation must be ignored. His message of change, unity, mutuality of interest and reward for party loyalty was embraced and endorsed by all, was impressed that TeamSly is catching up like “wild fire in the hamattan season”.
In a related development, led by Constituency Executives, the NDC flagbearer hopeful paid courtesy calls on the Paramount Chief of the Nangodi traditional area, Naab Kosom Asaga Yelzoga II at Nabdam; the Paramount Chief of the Bongo Traditional area, Naba Baba Salifu Aleemyarum, at Bongo; and the Paramount chief of the Navrongo Traditional Area, Navro-Pio Pe Dennis Balinia Adda, at Navrongo.
Mr. Mensah asked for their permission and blessing to engage their subjects who are party delegates in their respective paramountcies. He assured the chiefs that a new NDC government under his leadership would seek to improve the party’s relations with traditional authorities and support them to offer leadership to their people.
He shared his perspectives on why the NDC lost the 2016 general election and assured them of a renewed hope and change.
The chiefs commended Sly and prayed that success will come his way.
