Step aside – Group to NDC Chairmen
A group calling itself Coalition of Concerned NDC
Youth is calling on the regional chairmen of the
party to step aside for endorsing the former
President John Dramani Mahama to contest in the
2020 polls.

The group further appealed to the National
Executive Committee (NEC) and the Council of
Elders of the NDC, to call the ten outgoing
regional chairmen to book.

The chairmen on Thursday in a meeting requested
the former President to contest the 2020 elections
under the NDC ticket.

The Chairmen further recommended to him to embark
on a ‘Thank you’ tour to express appreciation to
NDC supporters during his tenure.

But a statement signed by the Convenor of the
group, Paramza Kofi Hamza, it said ‘In fact, the
seriousness of their conduct clearly flouts the
modus operandi of the ongoing reorganization
process’.

They argued that they have lost confidence in the
chairmen doubting if they will be fair to other
NDC gurus who have expressed interests to contest
in the presidential race.

According to the Coalition of Concerned NDC Youth,
the demeanor of the chairmen amounts to anti-party
conduct which merits suspension from the party.

‘The ten regional chairmen cannot be referees and
players at the same time. They must do the
honourable thing by stepping aside. We have lost
confidence in them. We believe they will never be
fair to other would be Flagbearer contenders,’ the
group fumed.

The group said the party must be healed first
before all other things calling on other
contenders to respect the Kwesi Botchwey Committee
recommendations.


Read details of the group’s statement:

COALITION OF CONCERNED NDC YOUTH
PRESS RELEASE
ALL 10 NDC REGIONAL CHAIRMEN MUST STEP ASIDE TO
ALLOW THE REORGANIZATION PROCESS TO GO ON SMOOTHLY
AND PEACEFULLY
We the Coalition of Concerned Youth of the NDC
would like to use this medium to express our total
disapproval and disgust at the manner in which ten
outgoing regional chairmen of our party conducted
themselves yesterday at a press conference they
held to endorse former President Mahama as our
Flagbearer for election 2020.
We would like to appeal to the National Executive
Committee (NEC) and the Council of Elders of the
NDC, to call the ten outgoing regional chairmen to
book.
In fact, the seriousness of their conduct clearly
flouts the modus operandi of the ongoing
reorganization process. As we speak, booklets are
not even available to register branch members, yet
what these regional chairmen are interested in is
for former President Mahama to lead the NDC again.
What happens to the reorganization? Why the hurry
to stampede the reorganization process; a process
which was initiated by NEC and included all these
ten regional chairmen who have suddenly turned a
blind eye to their own rules?
The ten regional chairmen cannot be referees and
players at the same time. They must do the
honourable thing by stepping aside. We have lost
confidence in them. We believe they will never be
fair to other would be Flagbearer contenders.
All those who are interested in leading the party
as our next Presidential Candidate, should abide
by the Constitution of our party; they should also
respect the Kwesi Botchwey Committee
recommendations. The party must be healed first
before all other things.
We are hereby appealing to the NEC and Council of
Elders to ask the ten infamous and lawless
regional chairmen to step aside and allow peace to
prevail. Their unethical and irresponsible conduct
has jeopardized the reorganization process. Their
demeanor amounts to anti-party conduct which
merits suspension from the party for a period of
time.
The party is bigger than all of us. Let’s apply
the rules regardless of status or name.
We are no longer confident in the leadership of
the ten regional chairmen as I said earlier. The
earlier they resign or are suspended the better
for the well being of the party.

Signed:

PARAMZA KOFI HAMZA
(CONVENOR)
CITIZEN SAWA
(SECRETARY)
