NPP’s fortunes in Volta region slow but positive

The leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has been urged to be hopeful rather than disappointed about the party's fortunes in the Volta Region. This is because the Party's progress in the region has been slow  but positive and required equal attention in preparations towards the December 28 Presidential run-off.
    Mr Albert Gbortsyo, Former President of the Ho Polytechnic branch of the Tertiary Education Students Confederation (TESCON) of the NPP said the leadership would be making a grave mistake leaving out the region in arrangements towards the  Presidential run-off.
     He said every single vote is crucial in the run-off.   Ms Mariama Adamu, an NPP sympathizer expressed disappointed that the region has been left out of the Party's free 

transport arrangements for its supporters who wish to travel outside Accra to vote on December 28.    She said she has three sisters hawking in Accra who have expressed the desire to come down to Ho to vote for the party's Presidential candidate.
     Mr Johnson Avuletey, Volta Regional Organizer of the Party however assured that the region has not been left out of that arrangement and that things were being sorted out to ensure a grand victory on December 28.
In another development,  Mr Modestus Ahiable, Volta Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) said the Party has no special arrangements to ferry its supporters from Accra to vote, but would see what help could be given to those who organize themselves.
