The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Dramani Mahama has been assured of 62 percent of total votes in the Central Region during the 2024 general elections.
The assurance was given by the Regional Chairman of the party Professor Richard Asiedu while speaking at a rally at the Methodist School Park in Assin Breku to wrap up the opposition party’s ‘Thank You’ tour, attended by the flagbearer Former President John Dramani Mahama, on Sunday, July 9.
The tour, which climaxed on Sunday, July 9, was to thank constituents in Assin North for the electoral victory given to the NDC in June 27 by-election won by the NDC’s candidate James Gyakye Quayson.
Prof Asiedu said “Central region will not disappoint His Excellency John Mahama, we are launching agenda 20 seats for NDC in Central Region.
“With presidential, we are giving His Excellency 62 percent, this is the decision we took during our meeting.”
He further served notice to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) that the NDC will snatch the Assin Central parliamentary seat from the governing party.
The seat is currently being occupied by Mr Kennedy Agyapong who is aspiring to be the flagbearer of the NPP in the 2024 general elections.
But Prof Asiedu told him to focus on his presidential ambition and forget about the seat because the NDC is taking it in 2024.
“Assin area has in the past been described as the stronghold of the NPP but we have changed the narrative, Assin has now become the strong base of the NDC. In 2024, we will take not less than two out of the three seats in Assin.
“Let me tell Assin Central that the ‘Mugabe’ [referring to Kennedy Agyapong] who is on the seat should focus on his presidential ambition, I will take the seat from them to the NDC.”
