Cape Coast, June 13, GNA - Dr Ato Quarshie, Chairman of the Central Regional branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has appealed to members of the Party to ensure peaceful co-existence among the ranks and file to enable them to prepare adequately for Election 2004.
Dr Quarshie, who is also a Member of Parliament for Komenda-Edina-Eguafo Abrem Constituency, made the appeal when he settled a rift between Mr Harry Hayford, Member of Parliament for Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese Constituency and Apostle Kojo Jackson, the Party's Chairman in the Constituency, at Cape Coast on Saturday.
He said, now that the general election was around the corner, it would not augur well for members to antagonise each other. Dr Quarshie, therefore, appealed to Ward Executives, who attended the function, to bury their differences and gear their efforts towards the elections.
Smoking the peace pipe, Mr Hayford shook hands with the Chairman and they embraced each other.
He asked the aggrieved Party Executives to let by gone be by gone and concentrate on their campaign towards Election 2004. Mr Hayford said the Party could retain the Constituency Seat only when the Executives did away with petty squabbles and worked harder than before.
