Aspiring presidential candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr. Ekwow Spio-Garbrah believes a wind of change blowing through the party.
According to him, the level of change which occurred during the party’s branch constituency and regional level elections prove that the NDC is ready for a massive change.
Speaking to the media at the party’s National Congress on Saturday, Dr. Spio-Garbrah said the wind of change shows that the NDC is ready for the 2020 general elections.
“From the branch level, look at the level of change, there was about 70 percent change. At the constituency level, there was more than 70 percent change, and the same was the regional level election. So there is a wind of change,” he added.
Over 13,000 members of the NDC are currently at the Trade Fair Centre in Accra of which 9,000 delegates are expected to elect new executives to lead the party ahead of the 2020 general elections.
Dr. Spio-Garbrah during the interview further clarified that the wind of change does not mean that all the executives will be defeated because “most of them have themselves change their positions.”
“Most of them are not even trying to stand in the same position. If you look at the national executives very few are trying to stand in the same position, less than ten percent.
The majority are trying to be something else so they could still be eligible. This is because they know that their current positions may be hazardous,” he added.
