- The opposition NDC will turn 25 on June 10
- The party has laid out plans to celebrate the anniversary which includes a rally on June 10
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is expected to celebrate its 25th anniversary on Saturday June 10.
The anniversary is expected to see party executives clad themselves in party colours as they reflect on their future and chances of winning the 2020 elections.
YEN is gathering that there will be a mammoth rally on Saturday where the founder of the party, Jerry Ralwings is expected to share a stage with the former president, John Dramani Mahama under the theme : “Mirroring the past into the future”.
Jerry Rawlings has been in the news lately after he took to the stage on June 4 to commemorate the uprisings he championed in the 80’s.
Former president, Jerry John Rawlings, who is also the founder of the National Democratic Congress has said the party only has a chance to make a comeback in 2020, if there is a complete restructuring of the party's leadership.
According to Jerry Rawlings, corruption and the impudence of power under the Mahama administration caused them their loss in the elections.
John Mahama, had revealed in an interview that the main reason behind his loss was due to the fact that he had led “a lame horse” to the vigorous 2016 elections which saw Nana Akufo-Addo as the fiercest of contenders. But in his usual “boom” speech at the June 4 commemoration, Rawlings revealed that the cause of failure was precisely due to corruption.

So far, the defeated NDC party has set up a committee to investigate the actual cause of their failure.
The Kwesi Botchway committee is said to have revealed that the abuse of power, corruption and the complacency definitely caused the party to suffer such humiliating defeat. Meanwhile, concerns are being raised for the former president Rawlings to take over the affairs of the party - concerns of which are yet to be considered by Jerry John Rawlings.
