The Upper East Regional branch of the People’s National Convention (PNC), on Tuesday commemorated 29 years of the overthrow of Dr Hilla Limann, President of the Third Republic of Ghana in Bolgatanga.
The PNC called on members to eschew sycophancy and unite for the total development of the party.
The National Youth Organiser of the party, Mr Emmanuel Wilson expressed regret that one of the major problems affecting the party was the flattery behaviour exhibited by some members.
He said the party could bounce back to power if members remain united and forge ahead to campaign to win more people to its fold.
Mr Wilson condemned the celebration of the 31st December Revolution by the ruling National Democratic Congress, describing it as “unconstitutional”.
He said Dr Limann’s Administration was constitutionally elected into power, hence his overthrown by the Military tantamount to “high treason”.
Mr Wilson said instead of celebrating the coup, the perpetuators of the event should have been brought to book.
The Regional Secretary of the PNC, Mr Henry Fatchu who delivered a topic on: “Expectation or Realities of Limann’s Administration,” said it was very regrettable that Dr Limann was overthrown for being in power for 27 months.
He said the ex-president was imbued with vision and could have brought about the positive development of Ghana.
Mr Fatchu commended the media for expanding the frontiers of democracy in the country leading to freedom and Justice.
The Regional Chairman of the Party, Mr Baba Mohammed said the PNC would institutionalise the commemoration of the overthrow of Dr Limann.
He asked members of the party to remain united for the sake of developing the PNC.
