NDC pressure group declares support for President Mills

Accra, June 29, GNA - Movement for the Defence of Democracy (MDD), a National Democratic Congress (NDC) pressure group on Wednesday called on the party delegates to vote for President John Evans Atta Mills during the upcoming July Congress in Sunyani.

"We strongly believe that Election 2012 is a forgone conclusion with candidate Mills=85, but it will be suicidal and amount to a truncation of the peace, stability and development we are enjoying, and the party will also be doomed forever, if somebody else picks up the slot."

These were contained in a statement signed by Ebenezer Kondo, a Leading Member of the group and copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Accra.

The group formerly known as Campaign for Change (CFC) in Election 2008, pointed out that President Mills within his two-and-a-half years in office had performed well, invested in people, ran an open and transparent administration, brought about infrastructural development and economic stability.

"Apart from these successes achieved in this relatively short period in power, President Mills has also brought to bear a high level of integrity, honesty, morality, humility and tolerance in our body politic and this no doubt has endeared him to a lot of voters, especially floating voters," the statement said.
