The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) yesterday held its third ‘Unity Walk’ in Cape Coast in the Central Region.

The walk is part of the party’s campaign to engender solidarity and re-organise to position it for political power ahead of the 2020 elections.

Supporters converged at the Siwdu Park and walked to the London Bridge where leaders of the party interacted with them.

The former President John Dramani Mahama graced the walk which comes on the heels of two others held in the Northern and Greater Accra regions respectively.

Addressing the mammoth crowd after the four-hour walk, former President Mahama noted that a number of reforms being carried out by the party are part of initiatives to implement recommendations made by the Professor Kwesi Botchwey Committee report.

He indicated that the recommendations are already being instituted.

The committee was tasked to establish reasons the NDC lost the 2016 elections by going around the country to interview the rank and file of the party.

According to the former President, the party will kick-start the implementation of the recommendations with branch registration of members this month.

He entreated every member to go to their respective branches to register and not go to the regional headquarters.

After Joy FM started serialising the leaked 65-paged executive summary of the Prof Kwesi Botchwey Committee report, top functionaries of the party denied the reports.

The Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Inusah Fuseini had said he has no doubt that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was behind the document circulating in the media as the Prof Kwesi Botchwey Committee report.

Describing the contents of the executive summary of the report as fake, he said it was impossible for the Prof. Kwesi Botchwey Committee to produce things being cited as having been written in the report.

Former President Mahama also took a dig at the Akufo-Addo-led government, pointing out that the NPP rode on lies and propaganda to capture political power.
Using the recent gaffe of embattled Commissioner to South Africa, George Ayisi-Boateng, said he will prioritise needs of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) members at his duty post.

Former President Mahama said he remembered vividly how President Nana Akufo-Addo promised to be father for all after assuming office but has lied when it comes to treating all Ghanaians equally.

According to the former president, the new digital addressing system, Ghana Post is a huge scandal that needed President Akufo-Addo to set up a committee to investigate the abysmal job done. –myjoyonline.com
