NDC “Heroes Fund” not intended for political violence – Chairman

Dr Kwebena Adjei, National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has said the “Heroes Fund Foundation” was not to stimulate political violence against any opposition party.

The Foundation registered as a non-profit political organisation was to assist supporters and loyalists, who have encountered misfortune in the course of service to the party.

The Chairman said this at a fund raising and dinner dance held in Accra at the weekend to support members, who have suffered and continued to suffer in the discharge of their duties to the NDC party.

The event was also used to commemorate the 19th anniversary of the party.

He said the operations of the Foundation would also take care of non-members who have fallen victims of political violence in the country.

Dr Adjei called on party faithful to support the initiative to be able to assist the rather unfortunate members.

Mr James Victor Gbeho, Chairman of the Foundation, said the NDC party had been sensitive to the needs and wellbeing of its supporters.

Contributions from members of Parliament and other party functional would also support the Fund.

Meanwhile, various party members including President Mills and Vice President John Mahamah have pledged to contribute to the Fund.
