NDC issues statement on meeting with Prez Mills, others

The discussions were frank, constructive and cordial and those present at the meeting made useful suggestions about deepening the process of consultation between the Executive and the various arms of the party.
It was agreed by Members present that the discussions held had been very useful and they had provided the opportunity for the Executive to clarify a number of concerns that had been raised, and also to give other Members in attendance at the meeting the opportunity to express their opinions on recent developments in the run up to the Party's Congress to be held in January next year.
A decision was taken to make these consultations between Government and Party a more regular feature in order to ensure that unity, internal cohesion and the focus on dealing with the development challenges facing the nation is maintained.
It was also decided that there will be an outreach programme to touch base with Ghanaians everywhere in order to assure them of Government's unity and focus to improving their living conditions and fulfilling the NDC's manifesto.
