Mr Chris Addy-Nayo, a member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Buem Constituency, has called for reforms in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to focus on strengthening the grassroot base of the party.

He explained that the challenges facing the party had its roots in the rural areas and there was the need to deal with the problems and challenges in rural communities.

Mr Addy-Nayo was speaking at a meeting in Berekum in the Brong-Ahafo Region with members of the constituency.

It was in response to the Professor Kwesi Botchwey Committee report to restructure and restore the capacity and effectiveness of the various organs of the party especially at the branch level which connected directly to rural communities.
NDC is embarking on a rebuilding exercise in its branch base to make it stronger and also as a foundation towards winning the trust of the electorate and help rebuild the party based on its social democratic credentials, reconnecting itself to social democratic roots especially with rural communities and the youth and women.

Mr Addy-Nayo noted that the current situation, where a greater proportion of the nation’s resources ended up in urban communities exacerbated the current social and economic challenges facing the country.

“Efforts must be made to invest more of the nation’s limited resources in rural communities, this will only be possible if political parties in the country focus their agenda on rural development.

“The leadership of the local constituencies in the Brong-Ahafo Region should engage with the national executives to refocus the ongoing reforms in the party prioritising the strengthening of rural branches to make them more relevant to their grassroot communities.
“Party members in the Brong-Ahafo Region must protect the environment, forests and river bodies, since this will help in the rejuvenation of a clean and healthy environment in rural communities, contributing to the social and economic development of the country,” Mr Addy-Nayo stressed.

The NDC continues to rebuild its structures and policies before going back to the people for a mandate towards the 2020 elections. -GNA
