All is set for NDC congress

A member of the NDC 2018 congress planning committee, Mr. Alex Segbefia says the party is ready to hold its national congress on Saturday November 17 2018 at the Trade fair centre in Accra.

The congress will elect a National Chairman, National Vice Chairman, General Secretary, Deputy General Secretary, National Organizer and Deputy National Organizer.

Other positions are a National Communications Officer, Deputy Communications Officer, National Executive Committee Member and National Zongo Caucus Coordinator.

In all 65 individuals are contesting the posts, with the contest for Deputy General Secretary drawing the largest contestants of 11, while the contests for General Secretary and National Communications Officer with two candidates each, drew the least number of contestants.

Mr Segbefia in a press briefing on Thursday at the Trade Fair Centre, La, Accra, said the NDC is not only ready to hold congress but ready to take over governance from the New Patriotic Party.

“We are ready for government now. We realize there is a lot going on that is wrong and the NDC has been vindicated across all fronts, in terms of what we said was happening in the country and what has to be done and how we were governing, And so if you gave us government tomorrow, we will know what to do. We know for a fact that we will go through the process and we thank God, sometimes it’s a funny thing to say, for the opportunity for Ghanaians to make a comparison, the comparison has already been made.

We are ready and we know that we are coming into government again in 2020. But we are not going to point fingers, we are going to be magnanimous in the defeat of the NPP when 2020 comes. Our focus is to make sure Ghana moves on to become bigger, better and greater than it ever was and that is what we are planning for come 2020.”

On the congress itself, he said only accredited people who will be required to go through a registration process would be allowed to take part in the congress.

He said there will also be designated accreditation to differentiate various media to enable them do their work and entreated all to arrive early on Saturday to be able to go through the registration process.

Some 9,000 delegates are expected to elect the national officers, with the entire congress attendance estimated at 13,000 people.

The immediate environs of the Trade Fair as well as the inner perimeter are awash with banners and posters bearing photographs and campaign messages of the contestants. Banners of many more were still being hoisted at vantage points.
