NDC advised to shelve destructive tendencies
The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), has pleaded with members of the party to avoid acts that are likely to create image problems and erode public confidence in the body.
Mr Yaw Owusu Obimpeh asked the NDC to stick to laid down internal procedures to address their grievances.
Speaking at a meeting with regional youth organisers of the party in Kumasi, Mr Obimpeh admonished them not to allow personal interest to override that of the party.
The meeting mapped out strategies to unite the youth and get them fired up ahead of the 2012 general election.
The Regional Chairman said the party recognised the role the youth played to bring the NDC back to power and encouraged them to work with the executives to win over more voters.
Mr Obimpeh drew attention to the need for unity of purpose and understanding at all levels, to support the government to deliver the “Better Ghana” agenda.
Mr Alex Sawyer Attivor, First Regional Vice-Chairman of the NDC, called on the party’s youth to carry themselves well, reminding them that their attitudes and behaviour would provide a yardstick to judge them when they decide in future to contest for leadership positions.
He urged them not to relent in their efforts to mobilise and help the people to appreciate government achievements.
Mr Omar Ibrahim Nyameya, Regional Co-ordinator of the National Youth Employment Programme called on the youth organisers to work hard to counter negative propaganda against the NDC.
