Member of Parliament for Ashiaman constituency in the Greater Accra Region, Ernest Norgbey has said the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has a strategy in place to capture twenty-five (25) seats out of thirty-four in the Region in 2020.

The NDC lost six seats in the 2016 Parliamentary election it had prior to the 2016 elections.

According to the Ashaiman legislator the enthusiasm that had characterized the just ended Regional election, shows how the grassroots base of the party is being rejuvenated and the NDC is poised to form the Majority in Parliament come 2020.

Seats that were traditionally NDC that were lost would be recaptured, we are going to take seats that are not traditionally NDC, in addition we would increase the numbers; for instance in my constituency Ashiaman we worn by fifty-two thousand votes we are going to increase it, he stated.

In an interview, he pointed out that the fact that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government is failing Ghanaians and they are complaining, they are yearning for the comeback of the NDC to rescue them from the sufferings.

He added that policies, projects and programmes put in place by the previous administration is being destroyed by the current government.

“Look at our educational system the standards are going doing they are now talking about double tracking system, again the number of corruption being perpetuated”, he lamented.

We have been out of power for almost two years now,  you would realize that Ghanaians are already dissatisfied with this particular government and are calling for our come back,  we would just have to put our acts together and get down to the grassroots level, he said.

“But, we as NDC should not just say because NPP is failing for that matter we have worn 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary elections we need to work harder”
