The Regional Chairmen caucus of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) has indicated that the John Mahama-led administration was on course in working out to improve the socio-economic conditions of the country.
This was contained in a four-point communiqué issued in Tamale on Saturday, after a three-day NDC Regional Chairmen Caucus meeting to deliberate extensively on the social, economic and political situation confronting the country, and to see how best as regional chairmen, they could contribute their quota towards helping the president to execute the “Better Ghana Agenda”.
The four-point communiqué jointly signed by the Northern Regional Chairman, Mr Sorfo Azorka, and the Central Regional Chairman, Mr Adu Yeboah as convener said, “a review of government business indicates that the Mahama-led administration is very much on course to improve upon the socio-economic situation of the country”.
The communiqué said to be able to consolidate the gains made so far, there was the need for Ghanaians to close their ranks and focus more on issues that would unite the people for the mutual benefit of the nation.
They appreciated and endorsed measures being taken by President Mahama to fight corruption in all sectors of the economy, and called on all individuals in the country to cooperate and assist the President to win the fight against corruption.
The communiqué said; while the NDC was preparing towards constituency and regional conferences, as well as the National Congress, it was important for the rank and file of the party to exercise maximum restraint since the party would ensure a fair and transparent process.
It assured members of the party that the executives would continue to work closely with the grassroots of the party, so as to give President Mahama the needed support to accomplish the task ahead for Ghanaians to renew his mandate in 2016.
