Listen to Ablakwa Kobby & Ford Kamel
A Deputy Minister of Information Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has said that, the greatest gift that National Democratic Congress (NDC) can give the party’s founder and former president J. J Rawlings is for the party to win the December polls so as to preserve the legacy and dignity of the founder and his family.
According Mr Ablakwa, the NDC founder and his family have suffered so much dehumanizing treatments during the eight years tenure of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and stated that the former first family is likely to suffer similar feat under another NPP administration. He therefore called on party members to work very hard to retain the NDC in power with or without the support of the founder.
Mr Ablakwa was addressing members of the Ho central constituency chapters of Tertiary Educational Institution Network (TEIN) of the NDC at the Ho Polytechnic auditorium on Friday.
On his part, Mr Kobby Acheampong, Deputy interior Minister said the NDC was at a crossroad and in the process of a re-birth. The re-birth according him, would ensure the party’s continuous existence.
He therefore urged members to remain focus and “follow the leader of the Party” to go thru the re-birth successfully, stressing that “At every given time, there is only one leader and that leader is the one we need to follow”.
The Volta Regional Minister, Mr Henry Ford Kamel, also urged members of the party not to be discouraged by the recent challenges in the Party, but instead, rally behind President Mills, the leader of the party to ensure that the NDC succeeds.
Mr Ludwig Hlordze, National Youth Organiser of the NDC said young people in the Party has great future; and urged them to propagate the “good works” of the Party and “win souls” for an easy task in the December polls.
President of Ho Polytechnic TEIN, Mr Chris P. Awudi, called for a succession plan to be developed for the youth to assume leadership positions in the Party.
