As part of its preparation towards ensuring victory in the 2016 elections, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Germany is organising a training programme for Polling Station Agents and election volunteers who will be traveling to Ghana to assist in the various constituencies.
The one-day programme which is scheduled to take place in Hanover on Saturday April 16 2016 aims at providing the volunteers with a clearer understanding of the electoral process especially the duties and responsibilities of the Polling Station Agent and more importantly the need to maintain vigilance at all times.
Mr Kwaku Anane-Gyinde, National Organiser of NPP-Germany who disclosed this at meeting with party supporters in Frankfurt, explained that the massive interest and the high patronage of the programme underscore the yearning for change in Ghana.
According to him over fifty volunteers have so far confirmed their participation and urged those still interested in being part of the training to submit their names to their local chapter chairpersons or secretaries, adding that “our target is to recruit and train at least one hundred committed and dedicated volunteers who are prepared to defend and protect our votes on November 7”.
According to him, Ghana deserves better and assured Ghanaians that an Akufo-Addo led government will offer honest and purposeful leadership dedicated to the prudent management of the country’s resources for the benefit of all Ghanaians.
For his part, Mr Owusu Ansah, Chairman of NPP-Frankfurt indicated that the party is mobilising both human and material resources in readiness for the November 7 polls and encouraged members to fulfill their financial pledges to ensure victory for the NPP.
He announced that NPP-Frankfurt has embarked on a number of activities including fund raising, talking to friends and relatives back in Ghana and membership drive campaign all with the view to rallying support for the party.
