Upper East NDC Organiser Predicts Victory For Party

ASIEDU NKETIA GEN. SECRETARY NDCRobert Yeli-Oni, the Upper East Regional Youth Organiser of the National Democratic Con-gress (NDC), has expressed optimism that the NDC will be retained in power in the 2016 general elections.

He explained that all the arguments the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) was now using against the NDC would be invalidated by the performance of the party (NDC) before the 2016 elections.

This optimism was expressed by Mr Yeli-Oni last Tuesday at a forum organised by the Tertiary Education Institution Network (TEIN) members of the NDC of the University for Development Studies (UDS), Navrongo Campus.

The forum was aimed, among other things, at inculcating into the members the zeal, spirit and courage to withstand the machinations and deceit of their political opponents and to also be in a good stead to tell the success story of the NDC so as to woo more supporters into the party.

According to the Regional Youth Organiser, with the stability of the cedi as compared with the major currencies, the move towards effective stabilisation of the economy was in motion.

He indicated that by the close of the year, the Atuabo Gas Plant would have started producing gas and there would be a boom in the energy sector as the nation would witness a regular and constant flow of electricity to end the load shedding.

Mr. Yeli-Oni, whose address was on the topic, ‘The sustain-ability of our social democratic ideology depends on information gathering, processing and dissemination’, stressed the need for proper gathering of facts in the sustenance of the social democratic principles of the party.

“The NDC is a social democratic party and for that matter pro-poor and there is no way its policies will be against the poor.

“And we will always be committed to the welfare of the poor in society,” he emphasised.

Mr. Aduku Amos Awinzor, the Regional NDC Communication Director, also addressing the students on the topic, ‘Effective communication: The role of TEIN in pursuing the “Better Ghana Agenda’, called on the students to gather their facts on what government had done and tell Ghanaians.

Mr. Awinzor contended that the NDC was given a mandate to serve the nation for four years, and it could only be judged at the end of its term, and asked the students to be strategic on issues concerning the good work the government was doing.

He asked them to do persuasive communication when they were hosted as panelists on radio or TV stations, and should not forget to resort to defensive communication in the presentation of their facts.

Alhaji Sugrinooma Iddrisu Seidu, who is contesting the Deputy National Youth Organiser position, advised the students to continue to support the party, because it was the only party that could solve the nation’s problems.

Mr. David Yaw Modey, President of UDS TEIN in the Navrongo campus, on his part, urged his colleagues not to allow anybody from the opposition NPP to infiltrate their ranks.
