Bring NDC back in 2020 – Kuntu Blankson urges NDC faithfuls
A Former MP for Ekumfi and 1st Deputy Majority Chief Whip of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Hon George Kuntu Blankson has called on all faithful’s of the umbrella family to close their ranks to help the party secure victory in 2020 which is an inch closer.
According to the former Legislator, this is the time for the NDC leaders to do soul searching, address the weaknesses and re-claim its founding principles if it is to be unbeatable in 2020.
According to Kuntu Blankson if NDC leaders, members and stakeholders don’t do cautious introspection and openly show remorse for the betrayal of the people’s trust it might not recover in time for 2020.
Speaking after registering for his membership at the just ended NDC membership reregistration exercise at his Branch at Ekumfi Otuam, his hometown, the former District Chief Executive for Mfansteiman posited that unresolved grievances among members of the party need to be worked on to reduce unnecessary battles and factions that could cause serious damage to the fortunes of the NDC ahead of the 2020 general elections.
“Some people within our ranks and files are at loggerheads and don’t talk to each other from the branch, constituency, regional and national level. We should not continue to pretend that there are no problems in our party, there are and are several of them that contributed to our defeat, “he stated.
While admitting that in every grouping there are bound to be agreements and disagreements, the Former Board Chairman of the Ghana Airport Company Ltd under whose watch the Kotoka International Airport received massive facelift, is of the belief, there is much to be done to solve some of the disunity and infighting within the NDC
“Any attempt to allow divisions and factions will certainly spell doom for the NDC, which ordinarily should be the voice of the people now and the alternative platform for us to come to power in 2020, especially as the New Patriotic Party, (NPP) is clearly disappointing the citizens in the manner and way they are carrying on with governance,” he added.
He appealed passionately to the leadership of the NDC to shelve all differences and resort to dialogue, which for him, is the best option for a harmonious resolution of the internal issues of the party.
