Assin North Constituency’s MP-elect, James Gyakye Quayson’s win in the just-ended by-election is a significant victory for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and former President John Dramani Mahama, a member of the party, Stan Dogbe has stated.
He also pointed out that the win shows the party’s readiness to wrestle power from the NPP in the 2024 general elections and that the NDC has put enough mechanisms in place to collate and protect votes in the upcoming parliamentary and presidential elections.
“I have been in Assin North with many colleagues. The results should tell you that James Gyakye Quayson and NDC have done better than we did in 2020. We made great gains”, he noted.
He added that “the people are not only responding to how Gyakye Quayson has been treated, but as President Mahama said, they should vote and vote for the people of Ghana.”
Dogbe’s television and digital network, WoezorTV, collaborated with the NDC and John Mahama’s Elections Management Taskforce to collate results from all 99 polling stations ahead of the Electoral Commission (EC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in less than 90 minutes after the close of polls.
The Special Assistant to the former President expressed gratitude to party members and sympathisers for their contribution to the victory and assured viewers that the NDC was prepared for the 2024 elections.
Stan Dogbe asked the Akufo-Addo and Bawumia government to get ready to leave power since they failed in all economic aspects.
“After sharing money and last-minute projects, the Assin people were ready to vote against them, and that should tell you that Ghanaians cannot be taken for granted”, he stated in a post-election interview on WoezorTV.
Mr Dogbe showed appreciation to the leader of NDC and 2024 flag bearer, John Dramani Mahama, leading members of the party, NDC Members of Parliament (MPs), party executives at all levels across the country, as well as NDC sympathisers and traditional rulers in the Assin North for their contribution to Mr Quayson’s win.
According to Mr Dogbe, the NDC will not sleep after the by-election for the 2024 parliamentary and presidential elections.
He told viewers that, unlike previous elections, the party has put enough mechanisms in place to collate and protect the presidential and parliamentary votes across the 275 constituencies.
