The People's National Convention [PNC] has criticised the presence of an elephant on the grand medal of The National Honours Award.
A statement signed yesterday by Mr. Gabriel Kwamang, General Secretary of the PNC said that such events of national interest should not be tainted by partisan attitudes for that could lead to disunity.
It said that though the NPP criticised the National Democratic Congress [NDC] for displaying party colours at national events, the NPP appears to be making similar mistakes. According to the PNC, the situation will cause people to wonder whether or not those given the grand medals with the symbol of the NPP will have to surrender them when another party takes over the reins of government after the next general elections.
The statement then called on government to replace the symbol of the elephant on the grand medal with a national motif so as to give the awards a national appeal. The PNC pledged to continue to champion its cause to develop a national plan different from that of a political party in order for the country to maximize her progress effort and prevent political differences from retarding her growth.
