Mills Undertakes Nationwide Tour

The flag bearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the 2008 elections, Prof J.E.A. Mills, has started a nation-wide one-on-one interaction with various groups and individuals within the party.

The move is described as an effective way of disseminating information to ensure that his message goes down well with Ghanaians to ensure a resounding electoral victory for the NDC.

Mr Kwesi Ampah, who was with Dr Ekwow Spio-Garbrah campaign team prior to the NDC congress, made this known to the Daily Graphic, to announce that he had joined Prof Mills's communication team.

He said he, together with Mr Amete-Quarmyne, also formerly of the Spio team, joined the flag bearer's team with the blessing of Dr Spio-Garbrah to contribute their quota in securing a landslide victory for the Professor.

He said the move was also in fulfilment of Prof Mills's declaration during the congress that all should forget about their differences and join hands to secure victory for the NDC to take Ghanaians out of the mess created by the New Patriotic Party government.

He said Prof Mills would be meeting traditional and opinion leaders, professional bodies and other associations.

Mr Ampah, who is currently with the flag bearer, touring the Greater Accra Region, said Prof Mills had had a successful tour of the Northern and Central regions and described the Central Regional tour as unprecedented.

He said there was every indication that there had been a great change in the hearts of the voters in areas where the NDC flag bearer lost during the 2004 elections and among Ghanaians in general.

He explained that during their rounds the team was overwhelmed by the frustration and suffering expressed by the people as a result of the abysmal performance by the NPP government.

Mr Ampah said it was incredible the rate at which the inhuman policies and programmes as well as untruth by the Kufuor administration had made life unbearable for a lot of Ghanaians.

He also described the reception given to Prof Mills everywhere he had been as marvellous, saying that was a sign that victory would be secured.

But he was quick to add that the NDC would never be complacent but would work harder and be vigilant before and during the 2008 polls.
