NDC Don't Know How To Reward Loyalty—Concerned Member

NDC Don't Know How To Reward Loyalty—Concerned Member
MAY 9, 2019 GENERAL NEWS

As the Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) prepares for election 2020, many keep wondering whether the party has corrected its ways and imbibed the core principles of the party, especially as the Kwesi Botchway committee allegedly attributed the NDC's 2016 defeat mainly to apathy among its members

A concerned member of the party in the Sunyani Technical University of the Brong Ahafo Region, says the party does not reward its loyal members.

Moro Mamudu made these claims in a statement he released, titled "Is the NDC Party Worth Dying For?".

He referenced a quote from Harvey Mackay which states that "employee loyalty begins with employer loyalty. Your employees should know that if they do the job they were hired to do with a reasonable amount of competence and efficiency, you will support them".

The NDC Member indicated that the party has in recent times, worked so hard to deliberately deviate from its basic principles.

He explained that both the Regional Youth Organizer and Deputy Regional Communications Officer for the party in the Bono Region, Efo Worlanyo Teskpo and Eric Adjei respectively were left to their faith when they were involved in terrible accidents.

"Some few days ago I was informed about a gory accident that involved one of the hardworking regional youth organizers Efo Worlanyo Tsekpo, the B/A Regional Youth Organizer. I did my checks to make sure it is true he was involved in an accident on his way from somewhere in the hinterland where he went to work for the NDC party, to my utmost surprise the young man who has dedicated his life to serve the party has been left to his fate after series of greetings from the party people", he noted.

He added that "Just some few months ago, I visited a comrade Eric Adjei, the deputy Communications Officer for the NDC in the Bono Region, who was also involved in a fatal accident in when he was assigned to monitor the presidential primaries in some constituencies, if not for God's mercy on the young man he would have lost his life for nothing, even after the young man was discharged from the hospital, not even a single national executive officer thought it wise to go and visit him, it took the grace of God and the benevolence of his family and other few individuals around him to bring him back to life. Anytime I see this young man on TV or listen to him speak on radio projecting the NDC I feel so disappointed in him, I ask myself isn't Eric Adjei the same person who was ignored sometime ago when he found himself in between life and death by this same NDC people".

He bemoaned, that even though the two gentlemen unfortunately got involved in the accident in line of their party duties, they were still neglected by the party hierarchy.

Moro Mamudu further alleged that the brilliant but young party officers in the Brong Ahafo region are seen as nightmares to the so called old and experienced politicians.

"If even regional executives are treated this way, then what will happen to those of us nowhere near the leadership of the party?" he quizzed.

Below is the full statement

A CONCERNED NDC YOUTH IN BONO REGION WRITES...IS THE NDC PARTY WORTH DYING FOR?

Harvey Mackay once posited that "employee loyalty begins with employer loyalty. Your employees should know that if they do the job they were hired to do with a reasonable amount of competence and efficiency, you will support them".

The NDC party in recent times has worked so hard to deliberately deviate from this basic life principle. I am peeved, I demoralised, I am worried for I feel the current NDC we belong to doesn't reward loyalty, our party is not much of a photocopy of our biggest opponent the NPP, whose tradition from time immemorial has been been that, one becomes important when you are needed to accomplish a task.

Why am I saying this, as a young man who has dedicated a chunk of my life to make sure the NDC regain power, I feel so terrible knowing the NDC doesn't seem to care about her members.

Some few days ago I was informed about a gory accident that involved one of the hardworking regional youth organizers Efo Worlanyo Tsekpo, the B/A Regional Youth Organizer. I did my checks to make sure it is true he was involved in an accident on his way from somewhere in the hinterland where he went to work for the NDC party, to my utmost surprise the young man who has dedicated his life to serve the party has been left to his fate after series of greetings from the party people.

He is yet to make terms with how to get on the road a car he borrowed from his friend for party assignment.

This youngman even on the hospital bed was making arrangement for programs for his branch Youth Organizers in the Region.

Just some few months ago, I visited a comrade Eric Adjei, the deputy Communications Officer for the NDC in the Bono Region, who was also involved in a fatal accident in when he was assigned to monitor the presidential primaries in some constituencies, if not for God's mercy on the young man he would have lost his life for nothing, even after the young man was discharged from the hospital, not even a single national executive officer thought it wise to go and visit him, it took the grace of God and the benevolence of his family and other few individuals around him to bring him back to life. Anytime I see this young man on TV or listen to him speak on radio projecting the NDC I feel so disappointed in him, I ask myself isn't Eric Adjei the same person who was ignored sometime ago when he found himself in between life and death by this same NDC people.

Whoever is closer to Eric Adjei, the B/A deputy Communications Officer should tell he has no idea what he is doing.

Interestingly, these two cases and many more alike happened in the Brong Ahafo region. A region where even campaign launch prior to the 2016 General election was unsuccessful, a region where the old corroded ones feel so much pain within when they see the young ones work so hard to bring the party back to power.

In this region, Brong Ahafo, the brilliant but young party officers are the nightmare of the so called old and experienced once.

I need answers to this, where are the vehicles meant for the 2016 campaign being kept, who is in charge of what in this region?

In Brong Ahafo nothing seem to be done well, the "I don't care" type of leadership, coupled with greed and jealous is what drastically reduced the NDC's numbers in the 2016 election over here and the story seem not to change anytime soon.

This culture of discrimination within the NDC party is very disturbing and the earlier something is done about it the better.

If even regional executives are treated this way then what will happen to those of us nowhere near leadership of the party.

It is therefore not surprising to see young energetic individuals find the NPP a safer haven than they find the NDC. The situation is becoming so worse that most of us are also thinking of moving on to places where our welfare will be the prime concern of the entire group.

I will conclude this with a quote from Dolly Parton, "If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then, you are an excellent leader.”

...Signed!....
