Man to contest NDC Women’s Organiser position

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is holding internal elections to elect new branch and national leaders ahead of the 2024 general election.

A guy is running for election as the party’s women organizer in the Saboba Constituency of the Northern Region.

James Kwame Boame, also known as Elizabeth, has served the party as the branch chairman for Bonzali Camp for the past four years.

Man to contest NDC Women’s Organiser position

Elizabeth has now made the decision to run for a position often held by women while still attempting to assist the party at the constituency level.

Mr. Boame claims that his choice to defy convention is motivated by his conviction that a man is equally entitled of holding such a position.

“My name is Hon. James Kwame A.K.A Elizabeth. I have interest in contesting for the NDC Women Organiser position for Saboba.

“I want to aspire for the position because of my belief that not only women can lead for the position,” he told Konkomba TV in an interview shared via Facebook.

Speaking in his native language; Kokomba, Elizabeth asserted his decision to vie for the women’s position while stating his record in the NDC and what he is aiming to bring to the Women Organiser office.

“I was a Bonzali Camp Chairman in Saboba and I’m now aspiring for the Women Organiser position. As Bonzali Chairman, I was able to offer my support by constructing culverts among others.

“I don’t understand why women can become vice president but men can’t become Women Organisers. My colleagues in the NDC have no problem with me contesting the position. Vote for me and I will develop Saboba and make sure I construct a road to Toso for easy access for young people to do business,” he added.

Elizabeth noted that his decision to contest the position has been communicated to several leaders of the NDC including the 2020 flagbearer of the party, former President John Dramani Mahama.

According to him, he has already mobilised a campaign team and is poised for victory.

“I have made my intention known to Moses Mabengba, John Mahama and his running mate and party executives that I want to contest for the Women Organiser position. I have a solid campaign team and have bought them five motorbikes for their work,” he stated.

The NDC will be conducting its constituency elections on the 22nd and 23rd of October 2022.
