My Win Is A Victory For NDC – Aseidu Nketiah

The National Democratic Congress' (NDC) new chairman, Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, has called his election as party chairman a call to duty. After holding the position of general secretary of the NDC for 17 years, Mr. Nketiah ousted Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, who took over as party chairman in 2018 but was unsuccessful in seeking reelection.

“My election indicates that the NDC is not done with me yet. I see this election as a call to duty; the duty is enormous’’, he announced on Sunday at the just ended party's National Executive Elections in his victory address.

Mr. Nketiah thanked the delegates for their support of the new National Executive Members and stated that his first priority would be to organize the party's grassroots supporters for success in the legislative and presidential elections of 2024.

“This is a victory for the NDC and that their defeat (losing candidates) is not a defeat in the actual sense but an indication that the party needs them to serve in other positions,” he said.

According to the incoming Chairman, in order to regain the independence of this country, the NDC's National Executive Congress was holding elections. "We are prepared to sacrifice everything, including our lives to ensure that the country is rescued", he said.

Former President, John Dramani Mahama, congratulated all the new executives and thanked the party's delegates for their sacrifices and work on the party's advancement.

 “I believe the delegates have the best wisdom, and they have told us what they want. It is our duty to work with the blueprint,” he stated, advising the new executives to cut short their celebrations and go straight to work.

According to the former President, the most important election is in 2024, and the executives need to be aware of the obligations placed ahead of them.
