The Zongo Caucus of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Tamale has commended members of the party who contested various positions during the party’s 8th National Delegates Congress, but were not elected.

According to the caucus, the composure and commitment to the party, as demonstrated by these contestants, partly contributed to the peaceful conduct of the congress.

“We appreciate their tolerance, understanding and hope to work with them and the elected executives towards realising the “Better Ghana” agenda of the NDC,” the group said in a statement signed by its Secretary, Mr Adam A. Tijani.

The position of vice-chairperson produced the highest number of candidates, but only six were elected out of 18 contestants.

The Zongo Caucus also commended winners of the various executive positions for their painstaking campaigns which earned them victories. They, however, entreated them to live up to the enormous challenge of working assiduously to help the party retain power.

The group recognised the willingness of the party’s top hierarchy to close their ranks and handle their differences amicably, describing it as a good development for the party.

They noted that it was good for the party to cross-fertilise ideas, because this was necessary to move it forward.

The group also commended the party for hosting the congress in Tamale, and said the events there had justified the decision of the executives.

“We appreciate the effort of the Northern Regional Executive of the NDC for organising and hosting the delegates congress peacefully.”

They also commended the youth wing of the party and the good people of Tamale for exhibiting the highest sense of maturity before during and after the three-day congress.
