Former CEO of the NHIA and NDC flagbearer hopeful, Sylvester Adinam Mensah, has revealed to NDC delegates in the Agortime-Ziope Constituency that the NDC lost the 2016 general elections because chiefs, religious leaders and elders of the NDC abandoned the party in the run up to the election due to the treatment government meted out to them.
He promised that under his leadership, he will restore the relationship between the party and the chiefs and religious leaders.
“I am here to give you my word that if you give me the nod, I will restore the party’s relationship with our elders, religious leaders and chiefs across the country to ensure that in 2020, they will support the party for victory. I give you my word that I shall bring on board all our party elders who took a decision to stay away from us in 2016 due to our attitude towards them”, he emphasised.
Mr. Mensah, who is a foundation member of the NDC and served in various positions, is currently a member of the Council of elders in Greater Accra Region. He said he will rely on the personal relationship he has with all elders to restore their confidence in the party, under his leadership.
Delegates were very happy that Mr. Mensah’s message has given them a positive assurance that will restore unity in the party, and promised to support and vote for him.
Mr. Mensah began his campaign tour in the Volta Region last week, visiting various Constituencies.
