Politics of Friday, 31 December 2010
The Volta Regional Branch of the United Cadre Front of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Friday pledged its support for President John Atta Mills led NDC in pursuance of it "Better Ghana" agenda. This was contained in a statement signed by Mr Samuel Adablah and Mr Seth Adevu, acting Regional Secretary and acting Regional Coordinator respectively, to mark the 29th Anniversary of the putsch that toppled late President Hilla Limann's administration.
The statement noted that the wrongs of "mismanagement, maladministration, corruption and nepotism, social injustice and exploitation, disappointments and frustrations" that the 31st December revolution set to right had gradually crept back into the mainstream of politics in the country. It said however that that awareness among Ghanaians to battle the wrongs in society remained an incontrovertible legacy of the 31st Revolution. "We of the United Cadre Front of the NDC saw the political intervention of the 31st December Revolution as one that had created an opening for greater political consciousness of the citizens to enable them stand for their rights and privileges" the statement said.
"Never again should they (Ghanaians allow a few privileged ones in our society to take the country for a ride by enriching themselves at the expense of society." The statement also lauded the ability of that Revolution to "push the country into a level of political maturity next to none in the sub- region."
