The Eastern Regional Branch of the 2020 Volunteers for the ruling New Patriotic Party, has been undertaking a 3-day intensive workshop, in the five blocks of the region.
The workshop was aimed at training the volunteers on how to educate the public on the voting progress for the upcoming general elections, how to sell the achievements of the ruling party, canvass for votes for Nana Akufo-Addo and NPP parliamentary candidates in the 33 constituencies.
The groups are: the Alpha Patrons, Patriotic Gents, Loyal Ladies, Zongo for Bawumia, and Patriotic Health Team among others.
The Regional Coordinator of the 2020 Volunteers Committee for the ruling NPP, Mr. Alpha Nyarko Kissi Aka Alpha Gold who organised the workshop tasked the Volunteers to embark on an outreach campaign, voter education, make donations, and more importantly, involving ourselves in the activities of the local people.
The workshop was held at five blocks in the region, where the first block was Akropong /Juabeng which comprises of New Juabeng North, New Juabeng South, Akuapem North, Akuapem South, Okere, Suhum, Nsawam and Ayensuano.

Alpha Gold, as he is affectionately called, speaking to the media after the three-day event at Koforidua, explained that the NPP has what it takes to win another 4-year term to continue its great works for the country, hence the need to work hard and retain the power.
Mr. Alpha who has been very supportive to the agenda of Patriotic Health Team and the New Patriotic Party as a whole said he is of the greatest conviction that the logistics donated will go a long way to complement the group’s efforts towards a resounding victory by the NPP at the December, 7 polls.
He has thus admonished all the volunteer groups in the region to be more focused in projecting the achievements of the NPP since it took over power some 3 and half years ago, to help win election 2020.
He urged the volunteers not to be complacent or downplay the chances of their opponents. He rallied them to utilize the NPP good records during their campaigns.
The capacity building workshop was chaired by Mrs. Gifty Oware Aboagye, the Deputy CEO of National Service Secretariat who admonished the groups to work hard and retain the ruling party in the upcoming election.
