FROM PATRICE SYLVESTER SELORMEY, HO
AS THE Ho Central branch of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) goes to the polls on February 22, 2018 to elect officers of the party for the next four years, polling station executives of the party have vowed to leave no stone unturned in their quest to get their most trusted aspiring candidate Mr Innocent Dey elected as the constituency chairman in their upcoming delegate’s conference.
The polling station executives backed by opinion leaders in the constituency and some bigwigs of the party has, thus, launched a vociferous campaign team to champion the chairmanship ambition of the renowned businessman.
According to the DAILY HERITAGE’S sources, the polling station executives and their key stakeholders had already motivated hundreds of their colleagues in the constituency to help execute the agenda.
One of the leading members who wants to remain anonymous for now, told the DAILY HERITAGE that the party in the constituency is convinced that the vocal businessman is the best to win the ultimate for the NPP in the 2020 general election because their current chairman, Mr Richard Kwadekpo a.k.a Zola had not been able to unite the divided front of the party.
“Mr Innocent Dey, a former 1st vice chairman of the party in the constituency is a genuine man with good intentions and charisma; therefore, we members of the Osono family are yearning for him to become our next chairman.
“The people of Ho Central NPP are ready for a change and our vision is to do all we can legally to win the delegates conference for Dey,” the leading member said.
Another top constituency executive, who spoke to this reporter on condition of anonymity, said if rebranding of the party is the way to go, then Mr Dei is the right choice.
“He has brought to the party a new form of dynamism which, hitherto, was missing. He has also won a lot of souls for us since he made his intention known a year ago”
The NDC has dominated Ho Central constituency since the birth of the Fourth Republic in 1992.
Mr Dey, who is the longest serving member of the Ho Municipal Assembly, has a vast of experience from a wide range of backgrounds.
“Over the years, he has devoted his time, knowledge and resources to help people in the constituency and beyond. His role as a respected and dedicated advocate and believer in the power of the youth as his way of helping them realise their potentials in transforming society has guided him over the years.
“He is committed to providing the right guidance and tools to the youth to realise their potentials. He is guided by a conviction that the youth are the leaders of today and as such needed to be empowered to take up their responsibility in the constituency and other parts of the country,” the executive stated.
Mr Dey, a former campaign coordinator for the current Municipal Chief Executive, Mr Nelson Akorli in the 2000 elections, has fearlessly advocated and taken advantage of every opportunity to inspire many mostly through his public speeches, his deeds and by volunteering to help those in need.
