About 120 cadres of the erstwhile Provisional National Defence Council (PNDC) in Nkoranza South and North Districts of Brong-Ahafo have held a joint meeting at Nkoranza to initiate plans aimed at promoting unity and cooperation among the leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to ensure the party’s victory in the December 2012 elections.
Mr. Michael Sarpong, acting secretary of the cadres’ front disclosed at the meeting that a delegation from the group would visit former President Jerry John Rawlings and President John Atta Mills to ensure the resolution of any impasse between them.
This, he said, would enable the two important figures of the NDC party to join hands and rally round all other members and supporters to win more votes for the party during the forthcoming general election.
“It will be wrong for cadres to sit down unconcerned and allow the party to go into opposition as a result of misunderstandings and differences among the leadership”, the acting secretary stated.
Mr Sarpong stressed the need for Former President Rawlings and Prof. Mills to relegate whatever differences that exists between them to the past and team up to unify members and supporters of the party to maintain the spirit of oneness in the NDC.
He urged the cadres to continue to campaign for the success of the government’s better Ghana agenda.
Mr. Sammy Asumah, a former Nkoranza District organizing assistant of the Committee for the Defence of the Revolution (CDR) advised NDC members not to be deceived with gifts and other enticements from politicians “who are only after your votes, not your welfare”.
He urged NDC members and supporters to regard themselves as belonging to one family working towards one goal and appealed to the leadership of the party to consider the plight of cadres “whose sweat and toils led to the formation of the NDC”.
In an open forum the cadres urged District/Municipal Chief Executives to bring all cadres in their areas together and encourage them to embark on serious campaign for a resounding victory for the party in the December elections. GNA
