The Council of Elders of the National Democratic Congress NDC has urged the two principal officers of the party, the national chairman and the General Secretary, to reflect soberly on the situation and be mindful of the overall national interest and the toils of the Party’s rank and file over the years to make the party strong, viable and ready to assume the reins of government in 2024.
In the interest of party cohesion, internal discipline and long-term stability, the Council further urged all contestants to regional and national positions, especially the incumbent national chairman and General Secretary to be circumspect in their campaigns by adhering to ground rules discussed and agreed upon. These according to the council include the use of decorous language, refrain from media attacks, breach of confidentiality and misrepresentations of decisions taken in relation to past actions of leadership.

According to the elders, at the time when the party should be getting itself ready for election 2024, the NDC needs nothing other than internal cohesion and togetherness adding that the country and rank and file of the party expect nothing else.
