The Youth Wing of the Central Regional branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has assured Ghanaians and members of the party that it is solidly behind its flag bearer, Prof. John Evans Atta Mills.This was contained in a release signed by the Regional Youth Organiser, Mr Samuel Ato Amoah, and Mr P. Kofi Ashice Owusu, Secretary, Youth Working Committee, and issued to the press in Cape Coast on Friday.
The release said Prof. Mills was the only flag bearer who could lead NDC to victory and, therefore, called on Ghanaians to support him to take the country out of the present economic doldrums.
The release said Prof. Mills was hale and hearty and was growing from strength to strength to contest the December 7 elections and win to become the President of Ghana.
It assured all that the Central Regional NDC had absolute faith and trust in Prof. Mills' capability to win the elections, irrespective of the rumours about his health, and called on Ghanaians to ignore and condemn all those rumours.
It debunked all false stories being peddled against Prof. Mills and said it would resist any attempt by anybody or a group of people to undermine the stability prevailing in the party and the undemocratic attempt to remove him as the flag bearer of the party.
The release called on all party members to remain calm in these turbulent times to undermine the victory of the NDC and that of Prof. Mills, adding that it was time for members of the party to stay focused and lend their support to Prof. Mills to win the election and restore smiles on the faces of Ghanaians.
