He reiterated his commitment to ensure that each constituency would have a well-furnished office for party work.
According to Mr Ntim, it is a common knowledge that he started the office project for constituencies while serving as the National First Vice Chairman, and true to his nature, he would ensure its full implementation when elected as the national chairman.
The tour, which started in the Upper West Region where he met delegates in their various constituencies to share his vision with them, was described as productive.
He received an overwhelming endorsement from the delegates; a feat which some of the delegates described as further enhancing his dominance in the race for the chairmanship.
Throughout the constituencies he visited, he was given an assurance that “it is his time to be given an opportunity to serve the party in the capacity of national chairman.”
In the Upper East Region, the delegates admonished him to continue working hard for the party.
They also expressed appreciation for his policy of recognising the aged and the sick in the party, since a lot of party members who had made sacrifices for the party over the years had been neglected.
While in the region, he visited a party member who had his leg amputated in the course of his service to the party.
The delegates also stressed the importance for the construction of party offices for the constituencies as it was a major concern to them.
Mr Ntim ended his tour in the Northern Region with excitement as the delegates assured him of their unflinching support.
According to them, he has worked hard enough over the years and so he deserves the position of national chairman.
