According to the Deputy General Secretary of the party Koku Anyidoho, the three month deadline given to the committee “was not cast in iron,” therefore, they have been given at most a month’s extension to conclude its report.
The extension of the deadline is to allow for the committee to meet all interest groups some of whom are still yearning to meet the committee.
According to him, the demand by the supporters from the grassroots to meet members of the committee is good omen for a party itching to return to power and therefore merits an extension.
The committee members have since been travelling the length and breadth of the country engaging supporters to find out what they think are the causes of the humiliating NDC defeat.
The NDC lost an opportunity for a third term in office and a second term for candidate John Mahama who took over as president in July after president John Atta Mills died in office in an election year 2012.
