Kwesi Botchwey C’ttee presents report today

NDC- Mr. AnyidohoThe Professor Kwesi Botchwey led committee investigating the woeful performance of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2016 general election will present its report to the party hierarchy today.

The presentation would be done at the NDC head office at Adabraka in Accra at 10am, the Ghanaian Times can authoritatively disclose.

The 13-member committee which was set up after the party lost the elections have been touring the country and interacting with the grassroots and executives for the past four months.

It is to find out the causes of the NDC defeat and the best way forward.

The party’s deputy general secretary, Koku Anyidoho told the Times in an interview on Friday that the presentation would put an end to all the hullabaloo surrounding the report.

He said once the report is presented the executive would use the recommendations to rebuild the party from the branch, constituency, regional to national levels.

‘We will use the report to rejuvenate the NDC as we tour the country celebrating our silver jubilee’.

Asked what he envisaged the report would recommend, Mr Anyidoho said the committee would determine why some supporters of the NDC declined to vote at the 2016 polls.

“It will definitely give us the detailed analysis as to why our supporters failed to vote and how the NDC government became disengaged with the people,” he stated.

According to him, it was expected that the report would further come out with “concrete reasons why the party structures should never be abused again in any future elections and that at any time the party and its structures must remain supreme”.

The deputy general secretary added that any future NDC government would be reminded that nothing should be done to undermine the party’s structures.

He thanked the founder of the party former President Jerry John Rawlings for the positive role he played during the 25th anniversary durbar at Ashaiman and the advice he gave, which he believed would go a long way to unite the party.
