Speaking to Rainbowradionline.com after submitting his nomination forms Mr Anyidoho said, delegates are buying into his message and was hopeful God willing, he will be victorious.
He described his engagement with delegates as excellent and exciting and ''they have enjoyed the message of party first'', he added.
He is looking forward to strengthen the base and structures of t6he party, and promised to uproot all sprinter groups.
‘’We need to maintain party discipline and respect party structures and move away from any sprinter groups. These are some of the reforms we are bringing on board and I am sure we will surely win 2020.’’
He further emphasised he is not contesting anyone rather he is vying for a position.
A total of 67 members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) few weeks ago picked nomination forms to contest for the various national positions ahead of the 2020 general election.
Among the list are a former Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Mrs Betty Mould Iddrisu; a former Local Government Minister, Mr Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, and a Vice Chairman of the NDC, Alhaji Huudu Yahaya, who are all contesting the position of national chairman.
This year’s national executive elections will see some changes in key positions, including the election of the vice chairman.
The position of the national chairman will have three vice chairpersons instead of six as prevailed in the previous elections.
The party has also changed its voting pattern where one form is used to vote for several positions for different candidates. Each vote will be exclusive to a candidate.
