to impede their chances of winning elections Kumasi, Sept 5, GNA - The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expressed serious concern about what it described as crude tactics being adopted by political opponents to cow it down and to obstruct its chances of winning Election 2004.
Mr Alex Sawyer Attivor, Chairman of the Kumasi Metropolitan Co-ordinating Committee of the NDC, who expressed these sentiments, said it had been observed that some of the tactics included the peddling of lies about NDC members and false accusations levelled against activists of the Party in respect of destruction of posters of political opponents.
Mr Attivor expressed these sentiments when he addressed an emergency meeting of the NDC Metropolitan Co-ordinating Committee, held in Kumasi on Saturday.
The meeting was convened to discuss alleged strategies and tactics being pursued by some political groups in a bid to cow down the NDC and to impede its chances of winning the Presidential and Parliamentary Elections.
The Metropolitan Co-ordinating Committee of the NDC is an Assembly of all NDC Constituency Executive Members of the constituencies in the Kumasi Metropolis.
Mr Attivor, who is also the NDC Chairman for the Asokwa Constituency, asked members and sympathisers of the NDC not to be scared or yield to any threats and lies but to firmly stand solidly behind the NDC.
Mr B. A. Mohammed, NDC Organiser of the Metropolitan Co-ordinating Committee, entreated members not to leave the campaign solely to the Leadership of the Party but that they should also get actively involved by moving from house to house to canvass for more support for the Party. He said he was not happy that the media, especially the local FM radio stations, did not give adequate coverage to activities of the NDC. The meeting, however, lauded Kapital Radio and Luv FM for their neutrality and objectivity in the coverage of political activities.
