The National Democratic Congress (NDC) U.S.A Chapter, the mouthpiece and the umbrella organization of all lawfully instituted NDC branches in the United States, on behalf of NDC Ghana wishes to inform the general public, both home and abroad that a group formed by Lawrence Appiah, a.k.a “Dr. Lawrence” parading themselves as friends of John Dramani Mahama (JDM) is an unauthorized group.
The NDC and NDC USA wish to clearly state that “Friends of JDM” under the leadership of Lawrence Appiah has no connection to the party, nor the party's flag-bearer, who is also the President of Ghana,
H. E. President John Dramani Mahama, or the Party.
The National Democratic Congress, Ghana and the NDC USA have clearly written to Mr. Lawrence Appiah and his group “Friends of JDM” not to engage in fundraising activities using the reputation of the party, or that of any of the party's agents or leading figures including the President of Ghana, who is also the party's flag-bearer.
Anyone who donates money to Mr. Lawrence Appiah (Dr. Lawrence) and or his group “friends of JDM” does so at his or her own risk.
NDC, Ghana and NDC USA does not endorse any activity of Lawrence Appiah and or “friends of JDM”.
The NDC USA wishes to inform the public that they can crosscheck the legitimacy and credibility of individuals, groups and organizations from the Ghanaian community in the USA. Most importantly if such groups claim to represent the President of the Republic of Ghana, by verifying their legitimacy through the Ghana's Embassy in Washington DC, USA.
