NDC Members Urged To Unite

The chairman of Nkoranza constituency branch of National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Peter Owusu-Baffoe has advised members of the party to take a cue from the re-union of ex-President J.J. Rawlings, Dr Kwesi Botchwey and Dr Obed Asamoah and forge ahead in unity to enable the party to win the 2004 elections.

He was addressing a meeting of members of the party at Kranka to discuss plans to revamp the party in the constituency. The constituency chairman urged the members to stand firm and not to allow themselves to be deceived by other politicians. He said the NDC still exists and speculations being peddled by other politicians that the party is in shambles are part of propaganda to throw dust into the eyes of party members to divide their ranks. Mr Owusu-Baffoe urged he leadership of the party at all levels to bury their differences and unite so other members would follow their example and remain with the party.

Mr Owusu-Baffoe referred to the recent resignation of three leaders of the party in the constituency and asked members not to let the incident to worry them "as politics is a game" and there are other members to carry on with the party's programmes. He said the resignation of the three persons will have no effect on the progress of the party. It would be recalled that about a month ago, the constituency vice-chairman, Nana Baffoe-Nti, Mr Kofi Adu, youth organizing secretary and Mr Bediako Baafour, propaganda secretary, resigned from the party. Mr Owusu-Baffoe urged all zonal executives to start registering members in their areas and expressed gratitude to the members for remaining steadfast.
