The National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Volta Region has appealed to Ghanaians to participate in the ongoing Population and Housing Census (PHC) 2021.

Mr. James Gunu, Regional Secretary of the Party underscored the importance of the exercise, which he said would help the Party better serve the people when it wins back poser in 2024.

“We strongly believe Ghanaians will derive the full benefits of the 2021 census only when the NDC wins election 2024”, the Regional Secretary said in a communiqué issued by the NDC in Volta at the end of its post-election retreat in Ho and copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA).

The Party, in the communiqué, said some entities were allegedly using the census exercise to fuel tribal and xenophobic agenda and must be checked.

“We, however, caution that those allegedly moving from house to house inquiring as to the nationality of people (asking whether they are Togolese or not) to put a stop to the said uninformed act”.

The retreat was organized under the auspices of the Volta NDC Parliamentary Caucus and the National Secretariat of the Party, to review the just concluded general elections.

The National Chairman and other top executives of the Party were at the retreat and all stakeholders including traditional leadership were commended for their roles in ensuring a successful election.

While commending its support base for helping secure almost all parliamentary seats in the Region, the Party continued to lament shortcomings observed during the elections.

The Party sympathized with individuals who lost their lives and those who were affected by border closures during the electioneering period.

The Party’s MPs were commended for undertaking social intervention programs in their constituencies and were asked to expand them to cover more people.

The retreat called for an “urgent” revival of the welfare scheme of the Party at the constituency level towards the social-economic advancement of the people.
