According to him, even though the party has a list of registered members at all branches across the country, the names are not compiled as an identifiable and workable document for the benefit of party members.

He stated that it is important for the party to know who its actual members are in its reoganisation agenda for victory in the 2020 general elections.

A comprehensive data base for the party at every level he said will help eliminate the challenge of identifying who the actual members of the party are in creating opportunities for them when the party comes to power.

“I have worked from the grassroot level as a ward secretary, branch secretary, deputy constituency, constituency secretary, a District elections Committee secretary and at various levels at the region; this is the time for me to move to the national level and take up the deputy General secretary position to serve the party” he said.

The NDC Deputy Secretary aspirant who is currently pursuing Law- LLB at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) had his Masters Degree in Development Management from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and first Degree (Bachelor of Arts) in Management and Psychology from the University of Ghana, Legon.
