The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for Buem, Mr Henry Ford Kamel, says that although the party enjoys an appreciable amount of goodwill currently, it would require a lot of hard work to dislodge the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) from power.
“There should be no room for complacency since NPP can exploit its incumbency to frustrate our efforts to reclaim the Castle,” he said
Mr Kamel was addressing a conference of the party in the constituency to review its activities and chart a new course to enable it to win the seat during the 2008 election.
The conference was also used to brief members about proceedings during the last meeting of Parliament and enabled the MP to seek their views on certain important national issues.
Mr Kamel told the Daily Graphic in Accra that he explained to members of the NDC in the constituency the need to stay united so as to beat the NPP to its own game.
The MP asked supporters of NDC throughout the country to be wary of activities of the Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) since that party, which broke away from the NDC, was bent on winning more of its members from the NDC.
He commended the national executive of the party and the founder, former President J.J Rawlings, for working tirelessly to keep up the spirit within the party.
The MP appealed to the various political parties to organise their campaigns towards the 2008 elections in a civil manner to ensure an incident-free elections.
On the development programmes within the constituency, Mr Kamel said that a ¢24.3 million library complex for the Teteman community had been completed, while the rehabilitation of a school block at Kayadan, executed at the cost ¢40 million, had been completed.
He said in collaboration with a non-governmental organisation, Christ Leads, 76 people in the area had been offered free medical treatment of their various diseases.
