Flagbearer aspirant of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has stated his party’s commitment to rewarding hardworking and loyal party members after the party’s victory in the 2020 elections.
“The next NDC administration will not leave out loyal party members,” Mr Mahama said.
Mr Mahama gave the assurance when addressing party delegates in the Ho West and Afadjato South constituencies in the Volta Region on Monday as part of his week-long flagbearership campaign tour in the region.
“We must set up a system to reward hardworking party foot soldiers, and when I say this, that is the duty of our many party executives, DCEs and members of Parliament and so on and so forth. So please as we are working, let’s be noting those who are giving their all, killing themselves for the party so that when the party comes into government, the party will also kill itself small for those people,” he said.
He further he will ensure that every constituency of the party gets it won building to call a party office.
“We also have to build our party into a modern political party, and so the practice where we have rented people’s houses as party offices should be a thing of the past and so in every constituency, we will put our heads together with the constituency executives and the members of parliament to put up a structure in every constituency that we can call a party office,”. he noted.
He, therefore, urged party members to give out their best ahead of the primaries and the 2020 elections.

“We will go into an election in 2020, the presidential candidate cannot be in every constituency at every time so it is the constituency chairman and the regional chairman and the others who will know who is doing what work,” he said.
The former president is scheduled to be in the region from January 28th to 2nd February to entreat delegates to vote for him in the constituencies during the presidential primaries scheduled to take place on February 23, 2019, for him to lead the party into the 2020 general elections.
