Hurray, the P/NDC is 20 Years Old!

Sat, 2 Jun 2012 Source: Agyemang, Katakyie Kwame Opoku

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) will be celebrating its 20 year anniversary as a political party in Ghana next month. As a result, I present to my noble readers the profile of this diabolic party to enable the youth, the undecided voters, and Ghanaians in general to be well-informed as they prepare for this year’s general elections. In doing so, I beg to portray the NDC as a political ‘armed robbery’ institution in line with Mr. Martin Amidu’s recent gargantuan revelations. The NDC under Prof. Mills, has succeeded in robbing mother Ghana huge sums of money leaving majority of her sons and daughters in abject poverty.
