Public Lectures on the theme ” Unity, Loyalty and Vigilance for 2024″ were held at Ajumako, the District capital of the Ajumako-Enyan-Essiam Constituency of the Central Region, as part of the 45th-anniversary celebration of the June 4th uprising that redeemed Ghana from bad governance.

The event attracted hundreds of the NDC party supporters from the District and elsewhere in the country. The NDC Constituency Chairman, Professor Jonathan Annan, said he was grateful to the NDC members for attending the program in their numbers.

He called on Ghanaians not to see the celebration of the June 4th uprising as an NDC celebration but rather a celebration for all in the sense that, but for the June 4th uprising, Ghana would not have been as it is today.

Professor Annan also asked the citizenry to consider the ” Probity, Transparency and Accountability” of the June 4th uprising as ethical and not just a party slogan. He stressed, “No nation can progress or develop without considering these three words that constitute the slogan for the June 4th uprising.”

One of the speakers to the theme, “Unity, Loyalty and Vigilance for 2024 and Beyond”, Augustus “Goosie” Obuadum Tanoh, who doubles as a cadre of the NDC, while giving the historical account of the origin of the celebration pointed out that there was a worsening economic crisis such as a high unemployment among the youth, rampant corruption, economic mismanagement, depreciation of the Ghana cedis and an acute poverty in the country 45 years ago.

Mr. Tanoh revealed that the timely intervention of cadre members like Huudu Yahaya, Samuel Gariba, Yaw Akrasie Sarpong, Cecilia Johnson, Antwi Bosiako-Sekyere, Mike Hapatsu, and many other dedicated cadre members who supported Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings’ passion for change, accountability, integrity, and development saved the nation from bad governance.

Augustus “Goosie” Obuadum Tanoh paid a glowing tribute to Sherry Ayitey, Kojo Tsikata, Ebow Taylor, Aana Eni, and other cadres for their loyalty to the June 4th uprising.

Touching on the keywords that constituted the theme “Unity, Loyalty, and Vigilance for 2024 and Beyond”, Augustus Obuadum Tanoh asked all NDC members to unite as the founders did. This alone, he stressed when done, will enable John Dramani Mahama to win the 2024 elections to rebuild what he described as the present state of Ghana’s tattered economy. He also asked the NDC party supporters to be loyal as the cadres did to save the nation some years ago.

He called all party supporters to be committed to building the party in ways that prioritize the party over themselves. Mr. Tanoh urged NDC party supporters to remain vigilant just as the cadres did.

Augustus “Goosie” Obuadum Tanoh said Ghana was in 2011 seen as one of the fastest growing economies with 14 percent growth. Sadly, he lamented, Ghana’s economy within just a decade of the NPP’s governance, the unemployment and poverty rates among the youth had risen.

These indications, he said, are unacceptable. He urged NDC party supporters to help the party win the 2024 elections. This alone, he explained, will help save the nation from bad governance as seen in the country some 45 years ago.

The open forum saw some aggrieved party supporters suggesting to the leadership of the party what ought to be done for the NDC to win the upcoming elections.

Others suggested instituting public lectures that will help immortalize the good deeds of the party founders, as done by the Dankwa Institute of the NPP.
