2008 is a must for NDC – Prof Mills
The Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, Professor John Evans Atta Mills, has warned that the party would not allow all efforts it would put in the 2008 general elections to come to waste.
He said: "Anybody who has intentions of rigging the 2008 elections must advise himself," adding that, the party was not going to take chances this time round but would ensure that the rules of the game are followed to bring peace.
Prof Mills said this at the inauguration of Greater Accra Regional Women's Working Committee of the NDC in Accra on Wednesday.
He appealed to the women to be more tolerant and not to be detracted by the negative criticism against the party but continue to work hard to bring NDC back to power.
Prof. Mills said through quality leadership of the NDC, women are now recognized as social partners in development and urged them to unite and rally behind the party, come 2008 general elections.
Mrs. Ama Benyiwa Doe, National Women Organiser of the party advised the women to step up their activities to openly canvas for NDC by starting house-to-house campaign.
Miss Vivian Ankrah, Regional Women Organiser and Chairperson of the Regional Women's Working Committee also advised the women to be vigilant and mobilize themselves to champion the cause of the NDC.
She assured Prof Mills of their unflinching support, especially as they prepare towards victory in the 2008 general elections, but admitted that the party needed to mobilize enough funds and secure the right logistics for effective campaign.
Mrs. Benyiwa Doe later swore-in a 27-member Working Committee comprising of constituency women organizers in the Greater Accra Region.
