FORMER MINISTER of Finance, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, who has his eyes on the presidency, has asked Ghanaians to answer calls by his party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), to register and join the opposition party as active members towards its re-organisation for change in 2024.
According to him, they, as members of the party, know that most “Ghanaians are very sympathetic to our party, the NDC,” but pointed out that “the task of organising to win power and rescue Ghana from the torturing policies of the ruling NPP requires all sympathisers to register to become active members.”
In a statement issued yesterday, the NDC flagbearer hopeful said registering to become active members of the party is an opportunity for people to rise through the party’s ranks and get groomed for political leadership in the present-future.
“Active members also have a stake in the grassroots decision-making process of the party. Most importantly, you get to choose the leaders of the party at branch, constituency, regional and national levels,” he noted.
Dr. Duffuor, whose debut in the NDC presidential poll stoked hopes for his potential, said moreover that a registered, proud and official member of the NDC will have the right to submit policy proposals and ideas for appropriation of the party’s policy document, the manifesto.
He described the NDC as Ghana’s biggest and most progressive people-centered political party, saying, “To be the party’s ambassador and direct agent of the change we all desire, every member of the NDC joins at the branch level.”
“Your membership at the branch is a proud statement of your bold association with the NDC. Don’t remain a mere sympathiser. Become an active member,” he appealed.
