Tensions High In NDC

Passions are running high among National Executive Members of the opposition National Democratic Congress over the refusal of some members of the 31st December Women?s Movement who are in possession of party vehicles to surrender them.

At the party?s National Executive Committee meeting held in Accra last Thursday, it came to light that some members of the 31st December Women?s Movement, with the full support of the former First Lady, are still in possession of 10 of the party?s vehicles.


They are reported to be using the vehicles for their private businesses while some key executive members are performing party duties without official vehicles. As a result of this, some members are very annoyed and have vowed to break away from the NDC unless the National Executive Council of the party retrieves the vehicles from the selfish 31st December activists.

They wondered why the former first lady, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings should still back these people to keep the vehicles when she herself had told the whole world that the 31st December Women?s Movement is not a political affiliate of the NDC but an NGO.
