Ismaila Ali, affectionately called Horoya, an aspirant for the Zongo Caucus position of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Greater Accra Region, has said it is high time the Zongo Caucus of the party is revived so it can reclaim its past glory.
In a statement ahead of the regional elections on Saturday, Ali said the Zongo Caucus used to be the most vibrant and popular political group across the country, but leadership challenges has demoted its vibrancy now.
This he said badly affected the NDC towards the 2016 elections. He was however quick to add that it is never too late because he has identified all the problems, and needs the nod of the NDC delegates to enable him rescue and bring the collapsing Zongo caucus back to life.
The two ‘horse race’ between Alhaji Ashkah, the incumbent Zongo Caucus Coordinator of many years, and Horoya Ali, a former Ayawaso East Organiser has made the race very active since the formation of the caucus.
As one of his visions, Horoya promised to change the face of the Zongo Caucus with the necessary structures in place, if given the chance as the next regional Caucus Coordinator. He described himself as young and very energetic and can work hard towards victory.
He said he will introduce activities that would bring most of the youth back to help the party to return to power in 2020, when he revives the caucus front to harvest the lost youth in the Zongos across the GA Region.
He assured to build a new Zonfos caucus in the region that Nno Nasara can ever stand. Horoya revealed he brought Aziz Haruna-Futa, the current National Nasara Coordinator into football, and so handling him politically would never be a problem for him.
He also agreed with the assertions of the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin that the the NPP’s Nasara club is more vibrant today than the NDC’s Zongo Caucus.
“…I have joined the race to help change and reshape the course and focus of the Zongo Caucus,” Ismaila Horoya Ali stated.
Adding, he said, “My administration will put in certain measures and programmes that will help make the Zongo Caucus more vibrant, popular and attractive to the people.
“…Going into election 2020, the current Zongo Caucus needs a vibrant leader, with a focus to draw comprehensive and effective plans for the organization”, he said.
“The current Nasara club is under the leadership of the very known youth, therefore, an equally young and smart person like me must go and challenge and compete with him for the Zongo votes”, charge Horoya Ali.
