Swearing in the campaign team members, the Greater Accra Regional Communications Officer of the party, Mr. Jerry Johnson entreated them to value team work and unity in order to achieve their goal.
He said the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government has failed Ghanaians, hence the need to campaign effectively to vote the NPP out of power.
Mr. Johnson asked the people to vote for the NDC Parliamentary Candidate for the constituency and the Presidential Candidate of the Party, John Mahama during the upcoming election.

The Parliamentary Candidate, Mr. Emmanuel Adotey Allotey, said the ruling NPP government has indulged in so much corruption, mentioning contracts for sale at Public Procurement Authority (PPA) under the Minister for Procurement, PDS fraudulent deal, DVLA sells Ghc10 first aid kit for Ghc100, Special Development Ministry blows Ghc800k on website, Asuogyaman DCE buys Ghc1,850 printer for Ghc16,000, and over 600,000 litres of BOST contaminated fuel disappears to buttress his point.
He asked that the NPP be rejected in the December polls and called on the people to vote him as parliamentary candidate and John Mahama to be the next president of the country.
The Constituency Chairman, Mr. Kwasi Arhin Jnr called on party sympathizers to support the campaign team.

Mr Arhin Jnr advised them to explain the party’s achievement, policies and programmes to the electorate to disabuse their minds of any negative propaganda of their political opponents.
Chairman of the Council of Elders, Alhaji Mamudu Amadu advised the youth to exercise restraint and tolerate opposing views to promote peace in the society.
He entreated the party supporters and sympathizers to rally behind the campaign team towards retraining the seat.
He charged them to do away with petty squabbles and rather work as a united front towards winning both the presidential and parliamentary elections to better the lot of the people.
