Mr Samuel A. Azasu, Organizer hopeful, said he was confident the discerning delegates knew the kind of leadership they wanted going into the 2024 elections and “I know they’ll speak.” 

“All I can say is, having served this party with my heart and being a grassroots man myself, I am confident the grassroots will give me the mandate to help break the 8.”

He said the Party would break the 8 with a leader who is attractive enough to win people from all angles, more importantly who cuts out and could represent the grassroots at every level. 

The elections of these executives come off April 28 to May 2, this year.
