Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings
THE NATIONAL Democratic Party (NDP) is targeting five parliamentary seats in the ruling NDC?s stronghold of the Volta region in the upcoming national election slated for December 7.
A leading member of the newly formed political party in Kumasi, Andy Owusu said winning five seats in the Volta region was not beyond the NDP.
He told Omanhene of Kessben Fm the NDP and their leader Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings had done a yeoman?s job in the region during the ongoing campaign.
Owusu who is part of the NDP Ashanti Regional Campaign team, disclosed that Nana Konadu had on the quiet, campaigned vigorously for the party?s parliamentary candidates in the Volta region.
Sounding confident, the NDP man said his party would win a minimum of five seats in the region, stressing that if things went well they could even win more.
He however refused to name the five seats in question, saying Nana Konadu was still working in those areas and it was not proper for him to give out the names of the targeted constituencies now.
Owusu said the NDP was also targeting two or more parliamentary seats in the Ashanti region, including the Asawase and Ejura/Sekyere Dumase constituencies both of which are in the hands of the NDC.
Buttressing his conviction that the NDC could win these aforementioned seats, he said Nana Konadu would use her position as president of the 31st December Women?s Movement which is made up of several women to help get them.
He said Nana Konadu would capitalize on her immense popularity among Ghanaian women to get more votes for NDP parliamentary candidates to help them make a huge impact in the elections.
Owusu said the NDP was targeting 30 parliamentary seats nationwide in the coming polls, adding that with the look of things and the rapid increase in the membership of the NDP across the country, the party could achieve its target.
