NDC Swerves K’si Residents with Unity Walk
THE LARGEST opposition political party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), will hold its upcoming Ashanti Regional Unity Walk at the Asawase Constituency in the Asokre Mampong Municipality, contrary claims that it would be held in Kumasi.
Even though the public was made to believe that the Walk would be taking place in the regional capital, Kumasi, per the routes given by the party’s leadership, the event would not take place in Kumasi.
A statement issued to the media also confirms that the programmme would start and end in in the Asokore Mampong Municipality.
“The walk would start at 6am at the Aboabo Post Office. The entire membership of the party would walk and converge at the Dogo Moro Park for a mammoth rally”, a press release by the party’s leadership in the region, has stated.
The release, signed by Yaw Obimpeh, the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NDC, further stated that top party members like ex-President John Dramani Mahama would address members during the mammoth rally.
It entreated Ghanaians, who are hankering for the opportunity to vote out the non-performing New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration from political office, to turn out large numbers.
Meanwhile, some political watchers have described the decision to organize the Walk within the Asokore Mampong Municipality as a nice move as it would attract a sizeable participation.
According to them, it would have been a disaster for the NDC had they organized the event in the Kumasi Metropolis, where the people’s love and affection for the NPP administration had soared since President Akufo-Addo took office.
They said the possibility of some Kumasi residents either hooting at or hurling insults at the walkers would have been higher, had the programme taken place within the Kumasi Metropolis.
“Perhaps, the organizers of the programme considered all these things and then decided to organize it within their stronghold to help make it successful”, a political pundit, an observer said.
