AN ASPIRING Deputy Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Jacob Adongo Atule, has successfully gone through vetting process to contest for the post.
Mr Adongo, who is visually impaired, and who proved everyone wrong by passing the vetting process, said he was ready to become a deputy national communications officer of the party.
Sources within the NDC circles revealed that Mr Adongo stands a better chance to be the next deputy communications officer of the party as delegates believe he is capable of partnering the team to push the party’s agenda.
Some of the delegates who spoke to the paper said they had monitored the comments and participation of Mr Adongo in party activities and believe that despite his inability to see, he is present at almost all important party functions.
“Based on this, some of the delegates’ rate him high above all the contestants because they say he has travelled to all the 10 regions and spoken to them about the need to strengthen the communications sector of the party,” a delegate stated.
Speaking to this paper in Accra, Mr Adongo said all indications point to the fact that the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) is short of ideas on how to run the economy and therefore has subjected Ghanaians to an unimaginable hardship.
He said currently many Ghanaians cannot enjoy three square meals due to the bad polices of the government.
“We were deceived by the NPP because of their numerous promises but 20 months in office the party has failed to deliver, ascribing it to the implementation of one policy, the Free Senior High School; so didn’t they know this after they went on promising heaven and earth?” he asked.
Mr Adongo said “my plan to the communications sector of the party is to develop the skills of presenting the party’s agenda and also separate propaganda from the truth.
“We will have regular meetings to discuss the coherence and consistency on national dialogue. I call on all party faithful to support this quest,” he appealed.
