The minister for Local Government and Rural Development, Hon. Ofosu Amfo has said that the untimely demise of the Ghanaian late president John Evans Atta Mills has brought unity among members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
According to the minister for Local Government and Rural Development, the unity that has emerged in the party will continue to exist during and after the elections without any impediment.
?As the death of the late president has reunited us, we will burry our differences and rally behind H.E John Dramani Mahama to retain the seat in order to lead Ghana to the Eldorado land?
He contended that the manner in which the crowd hailed ex-president Jerry John Rawlings at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium signifies how fortified the NDC front has become.
He dared the party followers to also support the incumbent president in unity to face their opponents squarely in the December polls.
He noted that, at the Sunyani congress Jerry John Rawlings did not gain much funs from the people like he had at the special delegates? congress at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium because he was strongly rallying behind his wife, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings to the late president.
?If today he has liberated himself from his wife?s decision to champion a good course of democracy, he is warmly welcome because we in the NDC abhor discrimination,? he stated.
He affirmed that the Presidential Candidate for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) ought not to be voted for indicating that during his term in office as Member of Parliament (MP) for Kyebi in the Eastern Region, he refused to transform his home town thereby denying them all the basic social amenities that the people want.
?The late president under his tenure in office has developed the place before his untimely death adding that God has recognised the good deeds of the NDC and that He has showered his unction on the party,? he said.
