Kojo Bonsu, Yamoah Ponkoh support NDC campaign with motorbikes

As the 2016 polls draw near political parties are drawing up strategies to police the ballot at the polling station level.

While the NPP has been asking its supporters to vote and stay to “guard” the ballot, the NDC has set up a team to go round on voting day to ensure the welfare of polling agents.

Regional Executives and other party agents have been tasked to go round and provide situational reports on happenings at the polling station level.

The Ashanti Region has become a battle ground for the two political parties.

Whilst the NPP is fighting to scale its reach to 90 percent and beyond, NDC, on the other hand, wants to beat its one million vote target in Ashanti Region to shore up its chances of winning the election.

Former Mayor of Kumasi, Kojo Bonsu has teamed up with ex- Chief Executive for Ejisu, Yamoah Ponkoh to boost the NDC’S chances.

The Kojo Bonsu-team has procured 20 motorcycles to enable the mobile team distribute food and logistics to the party’s agents who will be monitoring affairs at the polling station level.

Mr. Bonsu tells Luv News, “Ashanti Region is crucial; we are leaving no stone unturned to ensure no single vote of the NDC is lost and the right things are done at the polling station level. With these motorbikes our executives will travel to every polling station and ensure our agents are fed and voting is done per our laws.”

The former CEOs of KMA and Ejisu-Juaben Assembly have since their exit been campaigning for the National Democratic Congress in Ashanti Region.
