Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, told the ruling New Patriotic Party that newly elected executives are willing to risk their lives for electoral victory in 2024.
In Saturday’s election, Asiedu Nketiah defeated Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.
After taking the oath of office on Sunday morning, the former NDC general secretary thanked delegates for their support and promised that the new executives would challenge the NPP in the next election.
“We are prepared to sacrifice everything and I mean everything including our lives to achieve victory,” Mr Asiedu Nketiah said, adding that “wherever impunity becomes law, resistance becomes a duty. Looking at the array of executives elected today I have no doubt the party wants us to carry the battle to the elephant, we cannot let the country, and we cannot let the party down.”
He also urged party members to band together and reject hatred and bitterness in order to win the general election in 2024.
“We are not taking the confidence for granted, Ghana is in crisis and the NDC is also at a crossroads. What we need is unity, we pledge on behalf of myself and the new executives that in the coming days our first assignment is to work to unite the party and bring everybody on board even as we march forward to defeat the elephant and set the nation on the path of progress.”
