The Volta Regional arm of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said it will ensure that a Voltarian becomes the running mate to whomever leads the party as flag bearer.

Kafui Agbleze, Director of Communications for the NDC in the Volta Region, told Kwabena Prah Jnr. (The Don) on Accra100.5FM’s Ghana Yensom a day after the party’s National Delegates Congress which elected new national executives, that: “All Voltarians across the country are unified with one voice for a running mate from the region.”

A defeated National Organiser aspirant, Anita De-soso, a Voltarian, said at the Congress grounds that the defeat of many Voltarian candidates who were aspiring to frontline positions meant that Ewes had been sidelined from the game, adding that: “Let’s see how it goes”.

The Volta Region sees itself as the ‘World Bank’ of the NDC.

Mr Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, an Akan, who is not the newly-elected Chairman of the NDC, beat Mr Dan Abodakpi, a Voltarian, and three other aspirants at the Congress.

For the two-man General Secretary race, Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia, an Akan, beat his former Deputy, Koku Anyidoho, a Voltarian.

Mr Sammy Gyamfi, also an Akan, beat Mr Fred Agbenyo, a Voltarian, to become the new National Communication Officer.

Mr Agbleze, however, said the claim that “the Volta Region is not represented in the executive architecture … is untrue”.

“When you look at the two Deputy Youth Organisers, they are Ewes or they are Voltarians. When you look at the Deputy Women’s Organisers, one is a Voltarian. [With the] Deputy Organisers, one is a Voltarian. [With the] NEC members, two are Voltarians. [Of the] two Deputy Communications Officers, one is an Ewe”.

“Voltarians across the country are unified with one voice, they want one key substantive position; that is if John Mahama becomes the flag bearer or whoever becomes the flag bearer, Voltarians want a running mate. The Volta Region wants a running position. That is the thinking; that is the mindset; that is the reality on the ground in the Volta Region. This thing was even espoused before we went for the National Delegates Congress.”
