The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is aiming at stopping the New Patriotic Party (NPP) from winning 100,000 votes in the Volta Region in the December 7 polls, General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has hinted.

Dominated by Ewes, the region is an established NDC stronghold and was a huge waterloo for the Akan-dominated NPP in the early years of the Fourth Republic.

However, support for the NPP in the region has steadied and they have garnered over 100,000 votes in each of the elections since 2004.

But according to Mr Nketia who is popularly known as General Mosquito the NDC is bent on stopping the trend.

Speaking on Asempa FM's Ekosii Sen on Thursday, he said, "we're aiming at stopping NPP from getting 100,000 votes in the Volta Region. They do not deserve that.

He further discounted the NPP's claims that the NDC had turned the Volta Region into a "Voter Region" saying "don't mind the NPP, the people of Volta Region really know that the NDC has developed the their region very well".

"If we have not developed the place they should wait and see as we get the votes", he said, adding that "we believe the developmental projects Voltarians are enjoying from the government would turn into votes".
