- Former President Rawlings has advised the NDC to select officers who are principled and secure
- According to him, it is the only way to build a strong and effective party
- The NDC will elect officers to run its affairs from September 1 to Sunday, September 2, 2018
Former President Jerry John Rawlings has urged delegates of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to elect candidates of integrity into the leadership cadre of the party.
In a message to the delegates ahead of their regional elections, Rawlings stated that the outcome of the elections will potentially affect the party's future.
He therefore asked the delegates to "reject those whose conduct and lack of genuine commitment have contributed to the weakening of the party."
According to him, "In the recent past the monetization of our internal selection process has adversely affected the fortunes of the party.
I therefore urge you to resist the influence of money and material inducements from those who are more interested in themselves and their selfish interests than in building a strong and effective party".
Rawlings’ piece of advice was contained in a statement issued by Kobina Andoh Amoakwa of his Communication Directorate.
In the statement he emphasized the need to ensure that delegates “elect those who respect the essence of team work and who are principled, truthful and sincere.”
Delegates from all 275 constituencies will assemble at various designated centres to select the leaders for the party.
The exercise is expected to be carried out from Saturday, September 1 to Sunday, September 2, 2018.
The elected officers will then assume the responsibility of selecting the party’s flagbearer for the 2020 elections.
