Hogbetsotso: Afriyie-Ankrah calls for unity among all ethnic groups

Aspiring General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah has called for a united front among all people of diverse ethnic groups to help promote unity of purpose for Ghana’s development.

Speaking on the sidelines of the Hogbetsotso Festival of the Anlo state, the current Elections Director of the NDC said, “while the quest for political power is critical in spearheading development, the gracing of the Hogbetsotsoza by the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, following the special invitation by Awomefia Togbe Sri signifies a longstanding effort to bring all cultures in Ghana” together.

While attending the festival, Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah, took time to interact with Former President John Dramani Mahama, leading chiefs in the Volta region, leaders of the NDC across all levels of the party, opinion leaders, elders, members and sympathisers of the party to assure them of his commitment towards a united party in the National Delegates Congress in December.

Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah has declared his intention to vie for the General Secretary position because he believes “Ghana is at the crossroads having been led by the incompetent leadership of Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo-Addo and vice president Mahamudu Bawumiah” who heads the economic management team.

Elvis Afriyeh Ankrah, insists, “following the comprehensive development undertaken by the John Mahama led administration, it has become imperative for the NDC to be elected in the 2024 elections to give hope to the ordinary Ghanaian and restore the dwindling economy” back on track.

The Hogbetsotso Za has become one of the most prominent festivals in Ghana which seeks to rally all Ewes across the country and unify other Ghanaians of other ethnic groups towards the development of the country.
