THE former Chairman of the Berekum Zongo Community of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Alhaji A. Salifu aka Alhaji Frafra, has cautioned supporters of the party, especially the youth, not to take the laws of the country into their own hands since Ghana adheres to the rule of law.
He urged them to desist from all acts that could tarnish the image of the party and work towards the unity and the common good of the country.
Alhaji Salifu, who gave the caution at a victory meeting of members of the party in the Berekum municipality of the Brong Ahafo Region over the weekend, also congratulated President J.E.A. Mills on his assumption of the highest office of the land.
He said President Mills’s victory in eight out of the 10 regions of Ghana was a great achievement.
Alhaji Salifu called for unity to move the party and the country forward and pledged the community’s commitment to support President Mills to achieve growth and development in the country.
Alhaji Salifu, who is also one of the founding fathers of the party in the Berekum Constituency, noted that the days when the government of the day alone carried the burden and responsibility of the people were over, saying it was the moral obligation and constitutional responsibility of all to assist in nation building.
He therefore called on supporters of the party and the people of Berekum to rally behind the NDC government.
The former chairman further called on Ghanaians to exercise restraint while the government took the necessary measures to fulfil its electoral promises.
Alhaji Salifu praised the zongo community of the party and the executive members for withstanding all forms of extreme provocations when the party was in opposition and assured them that their long suffering and sacrifices would never be in vain.
Alhaji Salifu also congratulated Mr J.H. Owusu Acheampong on his election as the region’s representative to the Council of State.
