It is understandable that the members of the great NDC family feel aggrieved, upset, angry and disappointed about the recent defeat of the 2016 general election.

The scale and shocking manner of the defeat is what has prompted the National Executive of the party to put in place the Kwesi Botwey Committee to investigate and find out from members and all interested parties the causes and reasons why we lost the election the way we did.

The Committee is still in place and working, so the expectation is that anybody with any grievance or have anything to say will make a submission to the committee through the agreed and laid down format. It is rather surprising that some members including senior members of the party have chosen to go down the route of the media to air their grievances. Going down this route is certainly not helpful and will rather compound and complicate matters.

It is on this basis that on behalf of the UK/Ireland Chapter and on my own behalf as the Chairman appealing to everyone to take a sober reflection, cease fire and rather go to the Kwesi Botwey Committee with any grievance and anything we have to say.

What we need now is for us to re-channel our energies and rally behind the party’s efforts to regroup and reorganise. By all means let us talk, but let us talk within ourselves and to ourselves before we go out to talk to the nation as a party.

Long live the NDC, long live Ghana.
