Some members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have confidentially confessed to DAILY GUIDE that the campaign strategy of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has been shaking the ruling party.

To this end, the NDC is devising various strategies and schemes to neutralize the gains being made by the NPP in the region – said to be the ‘World Bank’ of the NDC on account of the massive votes the party garners in the Volta Region.

The source, who is a member of the ruling party, also indicated that the party is investing a lot in terms of logistics and capacity building to ensure that it secures its “gap one million” target, which seems to be reducing gradually.

He added that the NDC has devised plans to label the NPP as “a violent party, a party that is anti-Volta Region, a party that says the Volta Region is inhabited by Togolese, a party that will abandon all projects by the NDC, among other claims. We just want to paint the NPP black.”

Furthermore, the NDC, the source asserted, has also invested heavily to infiltrate the camp of the NPP for information and strategies being employed by the opposition party to be leaked, adding that “the ground is not good for us at all.”

NDC Press Conference

Meanwhile, the NDC has stressed that it is convinced that President John Mahama will win massively in the Volta Region in this year’s election because of what he claims to be the “deep desperation that is drowning the opposition New Patriotic Party.”

Koku Anyidoho, deputy general secretary of the NDC who addressed the press conference, said the NPP does not stand a chance of winning anything in the region because its presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, is not loved by the people of the region.

He also claimed that the NDC has intercepted a document from the NPP titled, “Bridging The Volta and The NPP Gap: Working Document in Perspective, The Past, The Present and The Future,” which he claimed was prepared under the guidance of the Volta Regional Chairman of the NPP, John Peter Amewu.

Koku alleged that the document contains plots by the NPP to win votes in the region. A copy of the document made available to DAILY GUIDE, indicates the strategies the NPP intends to deploy in order to repair its image in the region.

Tacit Admission

Mr. Anyidoho, making reference to some parts of the document, said the document exposes the NPP’s “tacit admission that they have no chance of getting significant votes in the Volta Region” hence, “their plan to create confusion to reduce the votes of the NDC in the region.”

He therefore, warned the NPP’s regional chairman and his party executives “not to dare cross any red lines as we approach the elections.”

On the issue of Togolese coming to vote in Ghana on December 7, Koku Anyidoho questioned, “If Ghanaians in Europe and America can come home to vote, why should our brethren in Togo not be allowed to come home and vote?”

NDC Desperate

A member of the NPP, Kofi Dzamesi, responding to the claims by Koku Anyidoho, noted that “The NDC is just desperate because defeat is staring them in the face.”

He added that the people of the Volta Region, especially the youth, have realized that the NDC has failed them after many years of governing the country, especially when the region has been voting massively for the NDC.
