“I am contesting the regional chairman position because I believe Ashanti Region is very critical to the success of NDC. So we can’t be sitting on the fence whiles our expertise rots away. I know that I am the right person for the job to bring back NDC into power,” he told host of the show Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin.

The NDC, however, has scheduled to hold its regional congress in the first quarter of 2022 with some renowned names emerging to contest other positions.

Lawyer Evans Amankwaa is confident of a massive victory as he explained that “we cannot afford to lose the 2024 general elections so it’s incumbent on our delegates to try different set of leadership to walk NDC triumphantly into the Jubilee house.”
