National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Samuel Ofosu Ampofo says he is not ready to relinquish his seat for anyone in the party.

He says he cannot work his socks off to make the NDC attractive for anyone to just come and unseat him.

According to Mr Ampofo, the NDC party has become very attractive since he took over as National Chairman, and that the party is now on a path of unprecedented progress in its 30yrs history.

Speaking on Accra-based Asempa FM. Mr Ampofo, says he will still maintain his position as chairman no matter who comes against him in the party's forthcoming internal primaries.

"Nothing will change about the chairmanship of the NDC, the track record is there. The performance is there. We have made the party attractive, things that are happening in the NDC today, since 1992 some have not happened before", he said.

"Today, when we are doing branch elections, national officers and Members of Parliament are there to supervise the elections. 

“It is unprecedented in the history of this country and it is under my watch and I believe that the NDC is moving from strength to strength. 2024 we are going to see an NDC which will form the next government", he added.

When pushed to speak on Mr Asiedu Nketia's rumoured interest in the Chairmanship position, Mr Ofoso Ampofo says he is not aware of the former's interest as nominations have not yet been opened.

He says he only focuses on getting himself ready to pick forms to seek reelection when nominations are announced.

He added that his achievements and performance will make him stand shoulders above anyone who will pick forms to contest him.

"I don't know anything. What I know is that my tenure as chairman is not over... I will pick forms when nominations are opened and ask delegates to look on my works and vote for me

"I will go and account to them and tell them to look at the indicators, where I took the party from in 2018. The seats we had in 2018 and the seats we got in 2020, the votes we had in 2016 and the vote we had in 2020.

"Our good performance is that for the first time in the history of our party, we have a Speaker from the opposition party which is historic.

"If for nothing at all, I have worked with a group and I'm proud of the group that I have worked with. I say kudos to all my national executives, regional executives and constituency executives. The delegates should look upon our works and retain us", he said
