Mr Mohammed Gyimah, Kwahu West Constituency Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has said the party has put in place mechanisms aimed at strengthening party grassroots structures and unity to snatch back the parliamentary seat.

He said: “We cannot afford to lose again in the constituency; I am going to build a party with unity of purpose to shore up our votes to over 20,000 in the 2016 general elections and snatch the seat back from the position New Patriotic Party”.

Speaking to the GNA, Mr Gyimah said winning th4 seat would not be easy but with the new strategies put in place including working to get “a marketable candidate” and building party structures, NDC would recapture the seat taken over since 1996.

He said the constituency executives were set to visit the constituency branches every month to acquaint themselves with issues facing members and to carry out aggressive membership drive.

Mr Gyimah said the party would also organise general meetings every six months for the executives to account to members to ensure transparency and accountability and allow equal participation in the party.

He said it was regrettable that for six years only executives of the party attended meetings conspicuously leaving out members at the base who form a chunk of the party.

He said the constituency would embark on sponsorship drive to create independent funding pool to support party activities in order to avoid over dependency on the national head quarters all the time for local party activities.

Mr Gyimah urged all executives who lost in the constituency elections not to be estranged but avail themselves at all times to share their rich experience to help strengthen the party for resounding victory in 2016 presidential and parliamentary elections.

Mr Salaam Bukari, Deputy General Secretary, said the actions of the new executives to put in place pragmatic steps to guide the party were in response to concerns raised by members at the grassroots after the last general elections.

He said members of the party felt bitter because party agents claimed they were not paid in the 2012 elections while constituency executives also failed to campaign in their localities or go round to express thanks to members.
