The former president noted that, it was important for even former appointee or official of the NDC work hard for victory in the 2020 elections, instead of following him everywhere he goes.

They say ‘agoro ne fom’ – the work is at the branches – and, so, every appointee, ex-appointee, ex-DCE, every person who is committed to NDC, you have a branch, you have a constituency; assist materially and physically,” Mahama said while speaking at the 27th anniversary lecture of the NDC.

Go back to the constituency as often as you can and join them in their activities. The work you do in your own constituency and in your own branch is more important than following the flag bearer”, Mr Mahama noted.

The NDC leader is of the view that the party can only wrestle power from the NPP government if every member shows commitment and works hard toward 2020.
