Minister urges NDC members to tolerate divergent views


Alhaji Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak, Minister for Youth and Sports, has urged members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to be tolerant to divergent political views.

He said multi-party democracy was about pursuing one's ideological agenda but with respect to others political views and ideas noting that under no circumstance “should we fight each other in our political activities”.

Alhaji Mubarak was addressing a meeting of the Asawase Constituency Executives of the NDC in Kumasi at the weekend.

He said the country had many challenges confronting it such as unemployment, high illiteracy rate and indiscipline and urged Ghanaians to co-operate with each other in order to address those problems.

The Minister, who is also the Member of Parliament (MP) for Asawase, stated that, it was important for the executives to close their ranks as they worked to consolidate the party's gains.

Mr Stephen Gyan, Deputy Constituency Secretary of the NDC, said his outfit had stepped up its political activities and membership drive as well as enhancing its internal structures to benefit the party.
