- A member of the NDC's communications team has suggested the party sells the Kwesi Botchwey committee findings
- He says the public interest in the report is an opportunity to gain revenue for the party
A National Democratic Congress communicator, Alhaji Naziru Mohammed has urged the leadership of the party to consider selling copies of the much-awaited Kwesi Botchwey report.
Alhjai Naziru opined that since there is a huge level of public interest in the findings, it would be a great marketing avenue if copies of the committee's report were sold.
". . NDC must take advantage of the high level of interest shown in what the research findings say. It is a way to recoup the investment into the project and also make extra money for the party," Alhjai Naziru said on UTV's morning show.
The Kwesi Botchwey report is to bring to light the factors that caused the National Democratic Congress's defeat in the 2016 general elections.
Led by Prof. Kwesi Botchwey, the committee tasked to research the party's loss has only disclosed snippets of their findings, as to what led to the downfall of the NDC in 2016.
The committee has since completed its research, however the full reports and findings have not been released to the public.
Since the NDC's defeat in 2016, many political commentators have speculated as to what circumstances might have been against the party, to cause its loss in 2016.
These commentaries have been further fueled by the intra-party bickering that emerged when some members of the NDC began blame games on each other over the party's defeat.
The founder of the NDC, Former President Jerry John Rawlings, at the party's Silver Jubilee on Sunday, June 11 had said the NDC lost the general elections due to the high level of corruption in certain branches of the party.
He is not the only one to have shared such sentiments, as some members of the NDC have also blame the leadership of the party for causing their defeat.
However, the main executives of the NDC have called for calm among its supporters, urging them to remain steadfast as they work to make a comeback in 2020.
