NDC prepared to recapture power- Ofosu-Ampofo



The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) says it is prepared with unity and a common sense of purpose to recapture political power from the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in next year’s general election.

We will “rescue the nation from the clueless hands of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo come 2020 general election, so as to put the nation back on the path of growth and prosperity”.

“We welcome 2019 with hope and optimism, cognisance of the untold hardship and misery, the shambolic performance of the Akufo Addo–Bawumia government brought Ghanaians in 2018.

Last year brought in its wake peculiar socio-economic and political challenges, emanating from the incapable leadership, corruption and maladministration of the NPP government.”

The largest opposition party, made their case in a New Year message released in Accra and signed by its national chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.

The message said while experts had predicted very hard times in 2019, “we wish to extend a message of hope to our fellow citizens.

As you may be aware, the NDC have hitherto demonstrated that we have a formidable team of efficient hands, waiting to form a government that is not only sensitive to socio-economic plights of its citizens but also frowns heavily on nepotism and corruption”.

According to the message, the New Year would bring in its wake, a renewed sense of responsibility and patriotism to hold the NPP accountable for its stewardship to Ghanaians.

“We wish to assure the rank and file of our party, that we will leave no one behind in this rescue mission; we are resolute and resolved to leave no stone unturned in the delivery of this mission to rescue our beloved nation from the socio-economic misery the NPP administration has visited on the innocent Ghanaian.

We extend a warm hand of invitation to all progressives far and wide, to join hands with us in this mission. We have no excuse to fail the people of this country,” the message added.

It explained that it was “in line with our philosophy of solidarity and social justice, let us use the season to show care and love to the vulnerable and underprivileged in society, whose plights have been worsened by the performance of this incapable Akufo-Addo government.”

“The NDC, therefore, urged the nation to welcome 2019 with a renewed sense of patriotism, selflessness, discipline and commitment towards the attainment of our national aspirations.

May God make our nation great and strong again.”
