The NDC's Parliamentary Candidate for Ningo-Prampram, Sam Dzata George has described the party's campaign launch held at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium over the weekend as a massive earthquake.

To him, the complete display of unity by the leadership of the party cannot be glossed over.

Speaking on Peace FM's Kokrokoo Monday, Sam George noted that the rapturous uproar from the enthusiastic delegates when President John Dramani Mahama and his wife, Lordina entered the events grounds shows the crazy love the party has for the First family.

According to him, he was afraid when President John Mahama finally touched down in the stadium because he felt the stadium was going to cave in.

The Parliamentary candidate for Ningo-Prampram was commenting on the party's campaign launch.

To him, he will never trade the NDC for any other party because there is no party that can exhibit true sense of affection and unity like the NDC exuded during the event on Sunday, August 14, 2016.

Sam George further urged the party folks and the entire nation to take cues from the statements by the majority leader in Parliament, Alban Bagbin that the members should lay aside their differences and work in uniformity to ensure that the NDC clinches victory in the December polls this year.

He further threw a subtle jibe at the NPP's flagbearer Nana Addo who he subtly described as a "dictatorial emperor", claiming the opposition cannot act in unity like the NDC.

The NDC, he said, "is the party that shows hope. That is the party where we’re able to tolerate dissent and converging opinions. That’s why we call ourselves Congress. The umbrella is big to accommodate all of us. I will accept and live in a party and be a proud member of a party that is tolerant of divergent opinions than to live under a dictatorship of an emperor who’s naked and he doesn’t even know he’s naked.”
