‘I’ve no intention to contest for position of NDC Women’s Organiser’ – Obuobia

Deputy Director of Communications of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Obuobia Darko Opoku has debunked claims she is nursing an ambition to contest for a National Women’s Organiser position in the party.

The NDC will elect constituency, regional and national executives next year but ahead of the elections, there have been flyers indicating that she wants to contest for the top women’s position.

In a statement, the former NDC Parliamentary Candidate for Weija Gbawe dissociated herself from the artworks designed in her name suggesting she wants to contest for the position of National Women’s Organiser of the NDC.

“While I thank any well-meaning person(s) involved in that activity, I want to state that I do not have any intention of, neither have I considered, contesting for the position of National Women’s Organiser or any other National Executive position,” Obuobia noted.

Below is her statement;

I have become aware of artworks designed in my name and being circulated to suggest that I intend to contest for the position of National Women’s Organiser of our great party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

While I thank any well-meaning person(s) involved in that activity, I want to state that I do not have any intention of, neither have I considered, contesting for the position of National Women’s Organiser or any other National Executive position.

I am an appointed Deputy Director of Communications of the NDC. Thanks to that position and opportunity, I worked with other colleagues and a team of young men and women who volunteered and led a Digital and Street Campaign for the John Mahama 2020 Campaign. We are proud, very proud, of our contribution to the communications efforts of the Campaign.

As a loyal and committed member of the NDC, I want to assure all party members and my well-wishers that Obuobia Darko-Opoku will continue to work very hard for our party, including leading volunteer teams in our next campaign, if God gives us life and the strength. I don’t have to be an elected party executive to do that.
