PROVIDENCE, RI, USA – On behalf of the Chairwoman, Ms. Sowah,
and all members of the NDC branch in Rhode Island, USA, I wish to congratulate
President John Mahama on being affirmed by the Supreme Court as the
legitimately elected President of Ghana.
NDC members and supporters in Rhode Island have always
believed that Ghanaians made the wise choice by electing President Mahama. NDC
Rhode Island members are very delighted
about the outcome of the petition, and applaud the resilience of the Ghanaian
people and institutions for keeping the peace for the last 8 months, and
ultimately showcasing democracy to the World, Africa, and ourselves. Make no
mistake; our actions have implications
beyond our borders.
The President’s cause is our cause. And hence, NDC Rhode
Island supports and shares his views on the ‘Better Ghana Agenda.’ We are
interested in being an asset by bringing ‘Ghana’ to Rhode Island and vice versa
through job creating, scholastic research, cross-cultural communication, etc. Rhode
Island universities have already made
major advances in partnering with their counterparts in Ghana through major
researches, and we hope this relationship continues to flourish.
We look forward to promoting President Mahama’s cause in
Rhode Island and in Ghana. May God bless NDC Rhode Island, may God bless NDC
Ghana, may God bless the people of Ghana, and may God bless Ghana.
