Apam Ward of NDC worried about some events in party

Apam (C/R), July 15, GNA - The Apam Ward of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expressed worry about some developments in the party and appealed to the Council of Elders to rise up and nip them in the bud before things get out of control.

At a meeting with the ward executives at Apam on Tuesday, Mr Isaac Quansah, Ward Co-ordinator, pointed out that if the National Executives of the party and the Council of Elders did not take immediate action to resolve the factionalism which was rearing its head in the party, they would live to regret after 2012.

"We cannot continue to deceive ourselves that there is no division in the NDC," he pointed out, and appealed to the party's members and leaders to use party structures to address issues rather than rush to the media.

The Ward Co-ordinator appealed to all members to think about the repercussions of their actions on the fortunes of the party.

"Election 2012 is just at our doorsteps and we need to unite to seek the renewal of the people's mandate for the party," he stressed, adding that "the supporters on the ground were expecting the unity to transcend from the top down to the grassroots, but if they are quarrelling against each other then what do they expect those in the lower ranks to do?"

Mr Quansah, who is also the Accountant of the Gomoaman Mutual Health Insurance Scheme, urged the party to give the government peace to carry out the work Ghanaians voted the party into office to do, since its success or otherwise would reflect on the party. "Let us give peace a chance," he stressed.
