The National Democratic Congress (NDC), has observed without surprise the attempt by our opponents to divert attention from the debilitating energy crisis that the country is saddled with, and the failure by President Kufuor and his NPP Government to keep faith with their numerous promises to solve the problem.
In a statement signed by its National Chairman, Dr. Kwabena Adjei, the NDC it indeed held its second Family meeting at the Coco Beach Hotel last Tuesday, April 03, 2007, at which several issues of concern to the party were discussed in an open, cordial and frank manner, in furtherance of the party's adherence to true democratic practice.
It said the way forward for the party was certainly the core subject of discussion, focusing on the urgent need to intensify their campaign efforts in response to the yearning of Ghanaians to be rescued from the hardships imposed on them by the unfocused and insensitive leadership of President Kufuor and the incompetence of his NPP regime.
The party observed that a section of the media that collaborates and sympathises with the NPP have taken bits and pieces of what they must have heard, and added their usual diabolical spin to suit their diversionary agenda, the statement said.
The leadership of the party, it said, wishes to inform the teeming supporters of the party that the words, phrases and statements that the pro-NPP media have attributed to certain NDC personalities emanate more from the figments of their imagination than what was actually said at the Family Meeting.
The leadership of the NDC also wishes to reassure members of the party that the front of the party remains more united than ever; that their party is even more poised for the beckoning 2008 electoral victory and that they should rather stay the course, desisting from being distracted by any vile propaganda until victory is won in December, 2008, the statement concluded.NPP DIVERTING ATTENTION WITH JERRY STORY — NDC
