Greater Accra Regional Executives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have accused government of neglecting the rank and file of the party.
According to the executives, government officials have, in most cases, sidelined members of the ruling party in the activities of government, leading to a gradual apathy amongst the supporters of the NDC.
Speaking to Citi News, the Greater Accra Regional Organizer of the NDC, Anthony Nukpunu, said the situation if not checked might affect the party in the 2016 elections.
According to him, government should ensure it satisfies members of the party saying, “you must make sure the needs and wants of people who work tirelessly for the victory of the party are satisfied in a particular programme that you send to that area so that at the end of the day, you don’t step on toes.
“What we see is that programmes are run in our regions and we end up stepping on so many toes of the very people who work tirelessly for the party,” he added.
