Flagbearer hopeful of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Goosie Tanoh, is set to take the three regions in the north by storm with a new wave of campaign.
The veteran politician is taking his “ Rising Together Campaign Tour’’ to the doorsteps of his biggest contender, former president John Mahama.
Goosie Tanoh, a founding member of the NDC has already toured and engaged delegates in parts of Volta Region, Greater Accra Region and Central Region where he received overwhelming support for his message of grassroots empowerment.
The opposition political party is gearing up to elect a flagbearer ahead of Ghana’s next presidential and parliamentary elections in 2020.
According to political pundits, the NDC’s December 7, presidential primary will be a test of the legacy of former president Mahama who is also a candidate in the election.
The northern sector tour will afford Mr. Tanoh, an opportunity to woo more delegates ahead of the proposed date for the election.
Per his itinerary, he will visit Wa Central, Wa West and Nadowli Kaleo to meet elders and chiefs in the Upper West Region.
He will also meet and interact with delegates at Jirapa, Lawra, Nandom, Lambussie, Sissala West and Sissala East constituencies, all in the Upper West Region.
Goosie Tanoh is also expected to canvass for votes in the Upper East Region and then the Northern Region.
A total of 13 aspirants have so far declared intentions to contest for the vacant position of the flagbearer ship slot of the party.
