- Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, has charged party folks not to hold back their contributions in helping the party back to power
- According to him the party will only reward members who contribute once in power
The National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) says the party will run a “no contribution, no chop” government when it returns to power.
Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, therefore, charged members of the NDC to double up their efforts in helping the party win the 2020 elections.
According to him, the party will reward the efforts of those who contribute to help bring NDC back into power.
The NDC voted John Dramani Mahama as its flagbearer ahead of the 2020 general elections.
The ex-president became the NDC’s presidential aspirant after beating off competition from six other candidates.
Mahama polled a whopping 213,487 votes, representing 95.23% of the total votes cast.
The other competitors – Prof. Joshua Alabi, Alban Bagbin, Goosie Tanoh, Dr. Ekwow Spio Garbrah, Sylvester Mensah and Nurudeen Iddrisu – had 5% of the votes combined.
However, Mahama will have to once again overcome incumbent President, Akufo-Addo who defeated him in the last elections.
The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) won the 2016 elections by a landslide margin, polling 53% of the total votes cast while the NDC could only manage 44.4%.
Mahama’s defeat in 2016 remains the worst ever election defeat suffered by an incumbent President in Ghana’s Fourth Republic.
