A Deputy Director of Communications for the NDC, Obuobia Darko- Opoku has distanced herself from posters alluding to her interest to contest for the National Women’s Organuser position in the umbrella family.
Madam Darko-Opoku indicated that she has no interest in vying for any executive position in the largest opposition party albeit ensuring the party scribes her commitments for the NDC.
It follows the circulation of her National Women’s Organiser “campaign” posters on social media.
In a statement on Tuesday, April 6, 2021, Obubia Darko-Opoku stated categorically that she will not run for an office when the time comes to elect new party executives.
“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,’ she wrote in the statement sighted by Original News.
The erstwhile Weija-Gbawe NDC legislator mentioned in the statement that “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.’
Instead, the statement noted that “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,”
