A total of 54 persons have filed papers to contest various regional executive positions of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Volta Region.

The positions of the treasurer and communications officer have been declared unopposed as it is only an industrialist, Mr Daniel Agboka-Dzegede, who filed for the post of treasurer and Mr Kafui Agbleze for the post of communications officer.

According to Mr Agboka-Dzegede, his achievements as the deputy treasurer had qualified him to be unopposed because of his financial ingenuity to raise GH¢1 million for the regional branch adding that he was prepared to apply the same skills to raise funds as a substantive treasurer.

Various positions

The Administrator at the Volta regional office of the NDC, Mr Emmanuel Akoto, disclosed that Miss Aku Dzifa Ativor had filed papers to contest the chairmanship position with the incumbent, Mr John Kwadjo Gyapong.
