The National Democratic Congress (NDC) extends its best wishes to all Ghanaians as the country joins the world to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Our warmest felicitations go to all Ghanaians on the occasion of Christmas which is observed and celebrated as a landmark on the Christian calendar. It is a period of sharing, reconciliation and preaching of love, peace and goodwill to all.
The NDC is strongly embedded in this belief and, views the occasion as a special period for the nation, irrespective of religion, creed, and tribe to continue to preach peace, love, forgiveness and reconciliation to mankind. We believe the bond of love and unity has undoubtedly earned Ghana her invaluable recognition as a very peaceful democratic country with an enviable record of upholding the rule of law and freedom of expression which are essential requirements in any multi-party democratic environment. The NDC also believes the nation’s sense of patriotism, unity and love played a pivotal role in the just ended peaceful elections which has further deepened the country’s democratic process and, confirmed the global recognition of Ghana as a beacon of democracy in Africa.
It is in this vein that we urge all Ghanaians not to relent on their efforts to pray for God’s love and peace to enable the country to consolidate the prevailing peace and stability as the nation prosecute the Better Ghana Agenda. The NDC wishes to use this occasion to entreat motorists and Ghanaians in general to observe strictly the traffic regulations, drive safely and be moderate in their celebration to ensure a very peaceful and enjoyable Christmas. We congratulate all Ghanaians on successful and peaceful elections and, wish all a very peaceful Christmas and prosperous New Year.
