The General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress Johnson Asiedu Nketia has said the party has managed to shed off its violent image of the past, and also achieved most of its objectives as a political movement.
Addressing teaming supporters of the umbrella family at its headquarters in Accra as they mark their 24th anniversary today, Friday, June 10, Mr. Asiedu Nketia also revealed that party’s manifesto for the 2016 elections is ready.
“We think that over these 24 years, we have a lot to celebrate. We have been the longest serving party in power, we have won more elections than any other political party in Ghana.
“We have polished our image. You know that some time ago we were branded with the tag of a violent party and luckily we have managed to shed that branding completely and another group has graciously taken over that branding and we thank them for that,” he stated.
He added: “ We are supposed to prepare our manifesto before we get into the next elections, I want to report to you that the manifesto is ready now and waiting for the ascent of the leader so we can fix a date to outdoor it”.
The NDC was founded by former President Rawlings in 1992 after he had ruled Ghana for many years through a military coup. He rode on the back of the party to win the 1992 and 96 elections under a democratic system.Asiedu Nketia By -starrfm
