I just returned from a field excursion in Ashanti Region tracking the ongoing Registration course of action, the other week we were in Volta Area hunting into the alleged military deployments and I need to acknowledge a number of the Constituencies are even now mainly inaccessible.
I have listened to an ongoing discussion by some users of the NDC suggesting that their Social gathering Vacation resort to the procurement of motorbikes for this election as an alternative of the regular decide on ups dispersed to the Constituencies.
People let us do a minimal examination…
Just one Select up costs roughly $25,000, at the existing trade amount that is about GHC145,000.
Assuming the Party employs the GHC45,000 to procure a number of bikes, it’s left GHC100,000 which can be offered to the Celebration in two installments, GHC50,000 to function and GHC50,000 as Election Working day sources to form out polling agents.
So the opportunity charge of procuring a decide on up for each and every constituency would be 5-10 motorbikes which a number of Constituency Executives can have access to and thousands and thousands of Cedis in money resources.
If I have the likelihood to tips the NDC I would say search, you are NOT as resourceful as these in Federal government and there is NO level paying $25,000 to buy decide on ups if you just cannot get dollars for polling brokers on Election Working day.
Purchase motorbikes and distribute to the constituencies.
The Constituencies that already have some choose ups, give them a stipend to refurbish them for use.
We are just four months absent.
If I have the possibility to communicate the NDC Constituency Executives i would say appear, the mom of all means is NOT a pick up, the mother of all sources is Income!
Rather of requesting for a decide on up, consider the cash and use it to ran your Constituency Marketing campaign.
Take the money and have ample to feed your polling agents and even pay out them on Election Working day, so that no matter what revenue your Occasion brings on Election Working day would be a reward.
But earlier mentioned all I would say, shelve yourselves of the price tag stress of fueling a decide up which only couple of people today can ride in.
Just GHC10 gas in a motorbike and you can go the total working day.
5 Motorbikes signify 5 diverse men and women can go to different destinations at a time.
If the NDC truly would like to run a people’s campaign then Motorbikes and Dollars are the Major-Deal!!
Really do not waste GHC145,000 on Choose Ups which only one man or woman would stop regulate, get loads motorbikes and give the relaxation of the Dollars to the Constituency Executives to ran the Marketing campaign time period!!
