The newly-elected Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Adentan Constituency, Eric Nii Lomoh says he intends to unite the party at the constituency level, retain the Parliamentary seat and increase the presidential vote at the 2024 elections.
According to him, the party only faces challenges in the district during national elections when there was division after party primaries.
