The newly elected Brong Ahafo Regional Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expressed its satisfaction with the manner President J.E.A Mills and his team have so far managed the administration of the nation.
According to them, the processes and strategies put in place by the government to manage the huge debt portfolio bequeathed the NDC government by the previous administration, create jobs, promote education and health among other sectors were laudable.
The committee also impressed upon the party’s numerous followers to rally behind the government in its effort at addressing the numerous challenges confronting the nation.
In a release issued to the press in Sunyani and signed by Mr Justice Samuel Adjei, the Regional Secretary, it said the regional FEC made the observation at its first meeting held in Sunyani to appraise the state of the party in the region and also to outline and discuss an action plan for the party for the first quarter of 2010.
It said the regional FEC had also followed closely the recent developments within the NDC and had come to the realisation that there had been conscious effort by a section of Ghanaians to consistently and tirelessly launch destructive criticisms at the NDC administration, headed by President Mills, with the aim of derailing whatever the government had achieved over its short stay in office, thus destroying the stability, cohesion and unity of the NDC government.
“We therefore, express concern about these negative developments and call on all members and sympathisers of the party to bury their differences and forge ahead in unity, so that together, we can work to retain power in 2012,” the release said.
“Running an administration in a democratic dispensation such as ours demands a lot of patience, tolerance and resilience, which are the basic ingredients of ensuring a cohesive and unified action, while at the same time ensuring that we do not compromise on the basic need for achieving accountability, rule of law and good governance, while exacting sanctions where and when there are infractions on the law,” it noted.
Meanwhile, all is set for the NDC National Youth Conference scheduled to take place in Sunyani, the Brong Ahafo Regional capital, on Saturday, January 9, 2010.
