NDC faithful optimistic of successful congress

Party faithfuls and delegates attending the National Delegates Congress are optimistic of the success of the event.

That, they said was as a result of the measures instituted by the National Congress Planning Committee of the party.

They said for instance, the security measures were helping to ensure law and order.

They cited the checking of accreditation as a good example of the steps taken to ensure a peaceful event.

A delegate, Kwame Baffour said he was confident that the party would emerge out of the congress united.

He expressed the hope that the delegates would elect people that would lead the party to victory in 2024.

Another member of the party, Ayomah Moro said the party would remain united after the congress, no matter who emerged victorious at the congress.

He expected all candidates to come together to prosecute the agenda of the party after the congress.

The Member of Parliament for Ablekuma South, Alfred O. Vanderpuije also said the NDC was the only alternative to rescue Ghanaians from the economic situation plaguing the country.

For him, the congress would be a success.

Today's congress is the 10th since the formation of the NDC in 1992.

The congress is enshrined in Article 20 (1-3) of the NDC Constitution which establishes congress as the highest decision-making body.

Congress is convened every four years by the General Secretary acting on the direction of the National Executive Committee.
