The Volta region is witnessing transformations in political affiliations, with a doubling of votes for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), said Mr. Makafui Woanyah, regional chairman of the party.
He said the region, which until then had been known as a “no go zone” for the NPP, is now reaching out, as seen in the last general election.
Mr Woanyah told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on Friday that the people were benefiting from social development initiatives under the NPP-led administration, which included health, nutrition and education programmes. ‘education.
“The narrative is changing. Gradually, Voltarians understand that there are political parties that mean good to them,” he said.
“The social democrats themselves are not in a position to put in place a social policy for them; no social program. We’ve done school feeding, we’ve done free SHS, capitation, free maternal care, roads, and all of those things are obvious.
“The Eastern Corridor – you know they don’t shout anymore. A lot of work is done there. »
Mr Woanyah, who is seeking re-election, said Party votes had doubled in the region under his leadership and asked to be kept on to pursue political empowerment strategies.
“We have done a lot over the period, knowing where we come from; the recent elections – national elections. We have increased our projection and it is unprecedented.
He promised to complete the party office complex suitable for Ho, which is about 80 percent complete, to help rebrand the party in the region.
These and many others, he noted, were indications that it should be maintained.
Mr. Woanyah is challenged by two others; Reverend Johnson Avulete, former Vice Regional Minister of Volta, and Mr. Joseph Homenya, currently Regional Secretary.
