Nana Akufo-Addo

The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Wednesday declared Elections 2012 as “Electoral Retirement Package,” for the flag bearer of opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo.

“The NDC’s performance over the period, reducing inflation to a single digit rat, a feat the NPP failed to achieve within eight years, steady progress for attainment of the ‘Better Ghana Agenda’ and posture of Nana Akufo Addo makes the NDC an obvious choice for Elections 2012.

“We must therefore work hard to counter the propagandist mechanism of the NPP to derail the Better Ghana Agenda….the NPP is the same right wing forces which faulted the progressive development agenda of the founder of the nation, Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah.

“They are at it again and we must stop them in their tracks, politics is for social contentment and not for property owning”, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, a Vice Chairperson of the NDC stated in Accra.

Mrs Rawlings was speaking at the handing over and induction ceremony of the University of Ghana, Accra City Campus Chapter of the NDC’s Tertiary Education Institution Network (TEIN).

The induction ceremony attended by leading members of the party, including Dr Kwabena Adjei, Chairman, Ministers of State, past Executive Members of TEIN, branches from other campuses and representatives from Tertiary Students Confederacy (TESCON) of NPP.

Mrs Rawlings called on NDC members to change their attitude to restore hope and faith in politics but reminded the youth that the development of a nation demands the sacrifices of a whole generation.

“As we moved the nation forward under the NDC and PNDC regimes, then suddenly the NPP won power and moved us backward again…but we are in power again to move the nation forward. It calls for greater sacrifices and vigilance”, Nana Agyeman Rawlings stated.

The former First Lady commended the contribution of TEIN to the electoral victory of the NDC in Election 2008 and urged them to continue working hard for retention of power.

The National Youth Organiser inducted the new officers into office with a charge for them to engage the rival TESCON on sound and civil debate.

The Zulu Club of Accra Poly entertained the audience with “melodious noise”.
