General Mosquito Charges NDC Faithful

The General  Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has called on party members to rededicate themselves to the principles of probity, accountability and social Justice explaining, ‘these are principles that have enabled the party to come this far.’

He said the NDC, since its formation, has upheld its core principles and managed the affairs of the state properly, whenever   it was elected into power.

In a statement to mark the 21st anniversary of the formation of the NDC, Mr. Nketiah said even in instances when the party had been out of power, it had always presented a loyal and objective opposition and had never undermined or compromised the country’s peace and stability.

Mr Asiedu Nketiah, also known as “General Mosquito” said the victories the parties has chalked in national elections is an expression of confidence in their philosophy of social Democracy.

‘That the NDC has won four out of six elections it has contested, is ample testimony to the confidence Ghanaians have in our party as the most broad-based and representative of the entire country.’

“We have over the years striven through the implementation of egalitarian policies, enhanced the welfare of the masses and these have resulted in significant improvements in the Ghanaian economy, education, agriculture and all facts of life in our nation,” he said.

He added that the NDC owed its successes to its members who have struggled and toiled to sustain the party.
While congratulating these gallant and faithful members for their effort over the years, Mr Asiedu Nketia called on them to remain loyal to the cause, as they work together in achieving greater development for Ghana.

“More than ever before, we urge unity and resoluteness among party faithfuls in the face of the challenges that confront us. We must rally behind our leader, H.E. President John Dramani Mahama to deliver on the overwhelming mandate bestowed on him by the people of Ghana” he stated.”

Mr. Asiedu Nketiah assured Ghanaians that the NDC would always put Ghana first in all that it does.
The NDC which prides itself as a social democratic party was founded by Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings in 1992, prior to multi-party elections that ushered in the Fourth Republic.

The then Head of State, Flt. Lt Rawlings became the NDC standard bearer in the December 7, 1992 elections and won.  He was subsequently re-elected in 1996, but the NDC lost the 2000 and 2004 general election under the flagbearership of the late John Evans Atta Mills.

It regained power under Professor Mills in the 2008 general elections and again elected in 2012 with John Dramani Mahama as its candidate.
