Constituency executives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Sunyani West would have to look for other sources of funding for their ambitious vision to construct an ultra-modern office facility for the party.
The executives could only realize a paltry GHc25,000 in actual donations and pledges out of their GHc500,000 target at a fund raising event held at Sheila’s Executive Lodge in Sunyani yesterday.
The newly elected executives upon assumption of office have resolved to construct a multi-purpose edifice which would serve as the constituency office and host all activities of the party both at the regional and constituency level.
The event which was well attended by branch executives and grass root supporters of the party also had some party big wigs in attendance.
Among them were former Ghana’s Ambassador to Algeria and former Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, His Excellency Kwadwo Nyamekye Marfo, former Deputy Brong Ahafo Regional Minister Justice Samuel Adjei and Regional Chairman of the party, Opoku Atuahene.
Others were Regional and National Executive position aspirants and some invited persons from the business fraternity.
Mr. Opoku Atuahene lauded the move by the Sunyani West executives and called on executives of other constituencies to emulate.
Sunyani West Constituency Chairman of the NDC Johnson Nketiah told myarkfmonline.com that the late start of the program affected them immensely.
He blamed the delay on the late arrival of some of the dignitaries.
He said some invited guests could not attend because they were caught up with other equally important events elsewhere.
The constituency chairman however expressed confidence that invited guests who could not attend the event would make their donations available.
Johnson Nketiah said the executives would still make the construction of the office their major priority and see to its completion before the end of their four year mandate.
He called on all party supporters to help make the dream come to pass.
