PNC National Congress in March

Dr Edward Mahama, leader of the People's National Convention (PNC) announced at Wa on Sunday that the party's national delegates congress in March would decide whether the party should dissolve and join a united Nkrumaist party under the Convention People's Party (CPP).
Dr Mahama made this known when he addressed the Upper West regional delegates congress of the party at Wa.
He said talks about uniting the Nkrumaist parties started since 1992 and that various compromise proposals he and other leaders suggested were rejected at various negotiations.
The PNC leader said one of the proposals he made was that the Nkrumaist parties could adopt the name PNC with the CPP symbol for a united Nkkrumaist party with the slogan God and Ghana first but the CPP rejected it.
Dr Mahama said a book, which he had written with the title the 'New Ghanaian Politics of Integrity', which deals with political philosophy of the late Third Republican President Dr Hilla Limann would be launched soon.
He called on PNC members and supporters to be steadfast in their loyalty to the party.
In his address, the out-going regional chairman of the party, Dr Gilbert Bainge called on party members to make sure that the PNC registers marketable candidates for 2004 elections.
