To assist in all legal situations affecting the party, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is thinking about implementing a “1-lawyer, 1-Constituency” strategy.
If the policy is put into place, party attorneys will be sent to each of the 275 constituencies in the nation to handle a variety of problems, including electoral ones.
National Chairman Samuel Ofosu Ampofo urged the policy’s swift implementation during a two-day meeting for the party’s attorneys over the weekend.
He stressed that there is a need to deploy attorneys even before 2024 to become familiar with the districts and, in some cases, to transfer their votes “and be part of those districts.”
“If we can ensure that we get people who will volunteer to be assigned to constituencies and then be introduced to the constituencies, work with them, visit them, have meetings with them and then by the time we get into the  elections, they would have bee part and parcel of those constituencies.”
The incumbent National Chairman, Mr. Ofosu Ampofo, claims that he has been given a mandate to oversee the execution of this policy by former President John Dramani Mahama, who was present at the event.
In order to assist persons on the ground, he also advocated for the establishment of a legal assistance fund from party members who are attorneys but are not always available to provide their skills.
Mr. Ofosu Ampofo lavished praise on the party’s attorneys who fight valiantly to defend the party in court.
The 2nd Annual Lawyers Conference was organized under the direction of Abraham Amaliba, Chairman of the NDC’s Legal Committee.
