The New Patriotic Party has launched a new campaign dubbed ‘adopt a polling station’ in an effort to sponsor party agents as the party struggles to manage meagre campaign finances.
“The polling station is the most important level of the election. Therefore we have polling agents who supervise the elections at those places, those who go round to call electorates from their homes to come out and vote. We also have those who secure the polling stations to ensure there is no problem at the stations,” campaign manager of the party Peter Mac Manu said at the launch.
He added: “This requires a lot of money and time. We as sympathisers of the party must, therefore, support the NPP in this regard. Some can bring foodstuff, money, your time and energy will also be appreciated and any other thing you think you can help with is welcome.”
Mac Manu reminded supporters of the party that elections are won at the polling station, adding that the party needs to do all within their power to secure the ballots.
He mentioned that they can only do that when they motivate the volunteers of the NPP during the elections.
“It is time for John Mahama and NDC to call Nana Akuffo Addo and congratulate him. We can only do this when we support the polling stations with the needed items amongst other things,” he said.
