The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has organised a three-day retreat in Ho in the Volta Region aimed at “rekindling the spirit of commitment and hard work” among the rank and file of the party for the recapturing of power in 2024.
The retreat which ended on Sunday, April 18, saw the development of a bespoke roadmap for the reorganisation of the largest opposition party ahead of the crucial 2024 elections.
In attendance were the NDC’s flagbearer and running mate for the 2020 presidential election, John Dramani Mahama and Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang as well as members of the Functional Executive Committee (FEC).
In a communique, the General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, said the event gave them the chance to reevaluate thoroughly the party’s showing in the 2020 general elections.
It also afforded them the chance to strengthen the structures of the party and strategise on the reorganisation of its rank and file for victory in the 2024 election.
"Also, the meeting thoroughly examined the role of the Electoral Commission, the military, and other security agencies in the 2020 general election," he said.
The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) in a recent survey projected that the NDC will win the 2024 election, but with a different person as the party’s flagbearer.
President Nana Akufo-Addo defeated the former president in the 2020 election to secure another four-year term; collecting 51.302% of the votes cast against the latter’s 47.359%.
The votes difference between the two candidates stood at 517, 231, representing a four percentage point, one of the highest since 1996.

Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang made the donation on behalf of the former president when she visited the family of Ishmael Mensah on Tuesday, April 13, 2021, to commiserate with them.
The Ofaakor District Magistrate Court remanded into police custody the two teenagers who allegedly killed Mensah.

Their remand was to allow the police to conduct more investigations into the matter.
