Eastern Regional Youth Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Haruna Apau Wiredu, has warned contenders of former president John Mahama not to step a foot in the region for campaign .
According to Haruna, he will not allow any individual to create cracks and division within the party and has therefore decided to block such contenders from creating disaffection for former President Mahama who is the choice of the overwhelming majority of the supporters.

“Honestly, I will fiercely resist and work against such persons should they even try to avail themselves to come and disturb the terrain because going into 2020, we need a united force, we need a common vision, we need a common purpose, we need a common understanding, just to ensure that at the end of the day our mission will be accomplished” he said on Accra-based radio, Neat FM.
Former President John Dramani Mahama over the weekend declared his intention to contest the Presidency in the 2020 general polls.
This can, however, only happen should he be elected by the party’s congress at the primaries of the NDC.
In a Facebook post, Mr. Mahama lauded the NDC’s reorganization efforts, which he reiterated has raised the party’s morale.
But according to the regional organizer hopeful, he will not allow any individual to create cracks and division within the party, describing Mr Mahama as a ‘demigod’ who will always be worshipped by his people.
“If I am the next organizer, why do I sit down because the point is as the next organizer you are the field Marshall on the ground and any act or move that has the potential to create deep cracks; create problems on the ground; to create factions; to create disaffection; clearly for me, I will crash that. Mahama is our demigod and we will continue to worship him”, he said.
