La Dade-Kotopon NDC inaugurates grass root team

The La Dade-Kotopon National Democratic Congress (NDC) Constituency, has inaugurated a re-organisation team to mobilise party members to work diligently in ensuring that the party retain power in 2016 and beyond.

The team, comprising grass root members in the branches are to put their heads together to strategise for effective ideas in reaching out to party faithful and disseminate timely information to be abreast of latest happenings in the party and the country.

The ceremony which took place in Accra was on the theme: “Effective Grassroot Mobilisation towards Election 2016 and beyond.”

Inaugurating the team, Mr Isaac Djangmah Vanderpuye, Deputy Greater Accra Regional Minister said the gesture is critical because grass root mobilisation is tactical to the development of any organisation.

He said the inauguration was necessitated due to the inability of the branches to meet.

He said it is also prudent to re-organise a more coercive team to be proactive and re-strategise in uniting party members for the 2016 elections.

“This will not come easy, we need to marshal our forces together with absolute focus on the party’s vision and continue to deliver the promise made to Ghanaians since we are accountable to them,” he added.

Mr Vanderpuye implore party members not to be complacent of the current wrangling’s in the New Patriotic Party but be more focus and plan effectively for the upcoming elections.

He said the welfare of every party member in the constituency is important and charged the team to have regular interaction with members and find out how they are fearing, in a bid to institute unity.

He commended members for availing themselves for the task ahead and assure them of the party executive support to realise their vision of retaining the presidential and parliamentary seat in the constituency.

Mr Sylvester Mensah, Chief Executive Officer of National Health Insurance Scheme posited that unity is the hallmark to organisational success and implore every party member to rally behind the leadership in the constituency.

“Like every organisational settings, there are altercations, but as matured members let’s use dialogue to resolve every misunderstanding and not resort to violence to mar the essence of the party existence,” he said.

He said for the party to retain the seat, the team must start work now and not rest on their achievements but continue to galvanise both new and old members for a resounding victory in 2016 elections.

Mr Mensah said the NDC party has embark on a number of projects such as building of hospitals in Ridge and the Police Headquarters, renovation of Accra circle road and the Burma Camp road and other developmental projects ongoing in other parts of the Greater Region.

The gathering brought together constituency executives and party functionaries including Nii Amasah Namoale, Member of Parliament for the constituency and Mrs Rita Naa Odoley Sowah, Municipal Chief Executive of La Dadekotopon Municipal Assembly.

An amount of GHC10,000 was raised to help facilitate the work of the newly re-constituted team.
