I will empower NDC structures in Zongo communities nationwide - Abdul Aziz

One of the aspirants racing for National Coordinator Zongo Caucus position in the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Abdul Aziz Mohammed has pledged to empower all NDC structures in Zongo communities nationwide.

He said he will work assiduously with the grassroots to empower structures of the party in all Zongo areas including the Zongos hitherto considered 'no go area' for other political parties.

According to the energetic NDC stalwart, his party which is in opposition will need his calibre in the Zongo communities to inspire the youth to rally behind the party to achieve this and wrestle power from NPP in 2020.

"We need the youth to take active part in everything the party will do including our quest to build structures. The organization of NDC in Zongo communities will hinge on how effective we will manage the youth and I am prepared to lead that process", he stressed.

Abdul Aziz Mohammed said he has already identified five specific Regions in the country where the NDC will take absolute control if he gets the nod of delegates to become the first National Coordinator of the Zongo Caucus.

These Regions are Northern, Upper East, Upper West, Brong Ahafo, and Greater Accra.

"These are all Regions that the NDC under my watch can take absolute control. I have the network in these regions and can increase our support base. That is why delegates must endeavour to endorse my candidature because I know I will not disappoint", he opined.

He explained that the NDC, under his leadership, in the Zongo communities will form groups to target specific areas where the voting pattern has not been favourable, to win more members, and increase the votes required to secure victory.

"We will go all out to destroy all the barriers hindering the prospects of the NDC. We will mobilize our gallant soldiers to join the campaign in all the communities considered slippery grounds", he assured.

He said the party will address the concerns of disgruntled members in the aforementioned communities in order to remove doubts in the minds of members so that they can be sure that victory will not escape NDC in 2020.
