founding member of the National Democratic Congress, Prof. Kwamena Ahwoi has urged the clergy in Accra to convince members of their congregation to vote for President John Mahama.
“We beg you as we meet with you today [Wednesday], we are not hiding the fact that we are asking you to talk to your congregations to vote to for our president and our parliamentary candidates,” Prof Ahwoi said at a meeting with the clergy in Accra on Wednesday.
According to him, the governing National Democratic Congress, NDC is a peaceful and united party, and hence should be given the nod for the second time.
“The choice is very clear; it is between peace and violence. It is a choice between unity and division. It is a choice between nationhood and ethnicity. We beg you, listen to our message. Convey our message to your congregation.
“We have rebranded ourselves. We have especially through Professor Mills, succeeded by President Mahama, completely turned the NDC around… the times have changed so the NDC has changed with it. The times have changed; our governance pattern has changed with the times,” Prof Ahwoi said.
On his part, Julius Debrah, the Chief of Staff urged members of the NDC to “desist from activities that will lead to trouble, hooliganism and things like that.”
He assured that the NDC if given the nod, would provide employment opportunities for young people in the country, as it has the right measures in place to do so.
