COMMUNIQUW ISSUED AT THE END OF THE NDC’S POST ELECTION RETREAT.
18TH APRIL 2021
The leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) concluded a three (3) day retreat in Ho, in the Volta region today, Sunday 18th April, 2021.
The retreat was attended by the party’s Flag-bearer and Running Mate for the 2020 Presidential Election, the Functional Committee, representation from the Council of Elders, Parliamentary Caucus Leadership, all 16 Chairman and Secretaries and other leading members of the Party.
The special programme was intended to assess the party’s performance in the 2020 general elections, strengthen the structures of the Party and strategize on the reorganization of the Party for victory in the 2024 general elections.
The leadership of the party resolved to immediately address the challenges that affected the party in the 2024 general elections, push for electoral reforms and embark on a series of programs to enhance party unity and rethink the spirit of commitment and hard work among the rank and file of the party for recapturing of power in 2024.
Party Executives at the Branch and Constituency levels are directed to urgently begin holding regular weekly meetings and activate steps for mobilizing existing and new members.
The NDC Parliamentary Caucus has been advised to work hard with a united purpose and hold the failed Akufo-Addo government accountable.
The leadership of the party wishes to express our profound gratitude to the rank and file of the party for the hard work, dedication and commitment exhibited during the just ended election. Our deepest condolences go to all the families of those who lost their lives in the defense of our democracy. These great men and women have attained martyrdom in the NDC and in our collective democratic pursuit, and the NDC will stop at nothing to seek justice for them.
The leadership of the party urges all members and sympathizers of the party to actively participate in the reorganization programme that will soon be rolled out by the party as we continue our quest to rescue Ghana from the clutches of the inept, deceitful and corrupt NPP Akufo-Addo government and restore her back to the path of development, inclusion and progress.
Hon. Johnson Aisedu Nketia
