Eastern Region Founding Members of NDC appeal to Rawlings

National Democratic Congress (NDC) Founding Members in the Eastern Region have appealed to former President John Jerry Rawlings to stop utterances that would have adverse effect on the party and destroy its image.

“We the founding members supported you during the eight years you were the President of Ghana and we are appealing to you to also support the current President of the Republic of Ghana and the flag bearer of the party, President John Atta Mills,” they said.

This was contained in a statement signed by six founding members in the Region and copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Koforidua.

They are Nana Asante Yemoah, from Suhum Kraboa Coaltar, Mr Alex Sam Darko, Kwaebibirim, Mr S.O. Agyeman, New Juaben, Alhaji Abu Mohammed, East Akyem, Major (Rtd) Ted Tetteh, Lower Manya and Mr Anfo Antire, Fanteakwa.

The statement called on the former president to consider the founding members and the grassroot members of the NDC who suffered during his tenure of office and stop making utterances that could damage the party.

“We are also appealing to all party faithfuls to stop the use of confrontational language against the former first couple,” it said.

The statement called on all founding members in the country, supporters and sympathizers to support the NDC government to win the 2012 elections to complete the “Better Ghana Agenda” for Ghanaians.**
