Flagbearer hopeful of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Goosie Tanoh has stated that breaking away from the party ahead of the 2000 general election was necessary because the NDC had lost its way.
He explained that the Reform Party was a sacrificial lamb for the empowerment of the party’s grassroots and the atonement of their sins.
Addressing delegates in Hohoe as part of his three-day tour of the Volta Region, Goosie Tanoh noted that “if people had sacrificed giving their lives, their careers, people who were to go to the universities never went because they were dedicated to the course and principles of 31st December revolution and working day in and day out.”

“How is it somebody can say the voice of the masses does not matter, they can dictate to the masses what they do, that’s how come reform rose to consolidate grassroots empowerment and accountability”.

“Our plan is to stand up for NDC to be stronger and firmer by showing principles originated its foundation, in life you must stand up for what you believe in if it means hardship, we believe in NDC because we were part of its birth, truly we were the midwives”.

“When you have a baby, you love that baby, you don’t want the baby to spoil and we didn’t want it to spoil that’s why we rose up,” Mr Tanoh said.

He was the leader of the National Reform Party, a breakaway group from the National Democratic Congress between 1999 and 2007 and represented the party in the 2000 presidential election, where he came third with 1.1per cent of the national vote.

Mr Tanoh returned to the NDC with his colleagues from the National Reform Party at the behest and upon several appeals made by the late President John Atta Mills in 2007/2008.

He will have to compete with 11 other contestants for the flagbearership slot of the party to lead it into the 2020 general election. –kasapafmonline.com
