In what seems to be another disappointment by the NDC grassroots, there has been another spree of disagreement by majority of the NDC grassroots, including some of their Members of Parliament who have come out to express their disappointment.
The NDC leadership in Parliament led by Hon Haruna Iddrisu on Wednesday, March 31, 2021 had a meeting with the National Chairman, the General Secretary and other Members of the Council of Elders of the Party, to engage on the recent issues of interest of the grassroots.
After a successful engagement, the National Chairman, Hon Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, issued out a statement,calling on their members to have trust in them as they work together in the supreme interest of the party.
Kindly find below the full statement
The Leadership of the National Democratic Congress has held a meeting with the Council of Elders of the party, and the entire Parliamentary Caucus in the aftermath of the disquiet and misgivings that characterized the approval of the Ministerial nominees of President Akufo-Addo.
The meeting was conducted in a healthy atmosphere in which the concerns of the teeming members and supporters were adequately ventilated and addressed.
Accordingly, the Leadership of the party wishes to assure all and sundry that the matters that have provoked public commentary have been dealt with in a manner that will promote and strengthen the cohesion of the party and all its organs.
We call on all to assure them on the need to put party unity over and above all interests so that together, we can hold the Akufo-Addo government to account even as we take measures to develop strategies towards the next general elections.
LONG LIVE THE NDC
ISSUED IN ACCRA THIS 31ST DAY OF MARCH, 2021
HON. SAMUEL OFOSU-AMPOFO
