The NDC launched the National Institute of Social Democracy about a month ago with the aim of inculcating the party’s principles, ideologies, and values to its members.

The school was setup to help train party members on the social democratic philosophy and also foster patriotism among members.

The former president was confident the institute will help address the problem of parochialism, disunity and back-biting in the party, as they seek to forge a united front into the 2020 elections.
