Koforidua, Jan. 19, GNA- The Eastern Regional Women Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Ms Evelyn Korang, has appealed to the former National Women's Organiser of the party, Ms Frances Asiam, to "forgive and forget the past" and return to the fold of the party as the party plans towards victory in 2008.
She made the appeal at a meeting of the Regional Executive of the party with constituency chairmen of the party at Koforidua on Wednesday .. Ms Korang cautioned Ms Asiam that if she maintained her stand of leaving the NDC, "where she is very much aware of the terrain", she could not predict what awaits her in any new groupings that she might wish to join. The Eastern Regional Chairman of the party, Mr Julius Debrah, commended the constituency executives for their support and co-operation which ensured a successful national delegates congress.
He appealed to any member of the party who might had been wronged "in any way" during the organization of the NDC 6th National Delegates Congress last December at Koforidua, to forgive and forget what occurred, saying, "almost all of the unexpected happenings were not intentional but did happened for various reasons which could not be anticipated by the organizers."
Mr Debrah appealed to the constituency chairmen to appeal to their members to stay focused and gave the assurance that there was hope for the party.
The Regional Secretary of the party, Mr Anthony Gyampoh called for unity within the party and assured the constituency chairmen of hard work and good leadership by the new regional executive. He reminded the constituency chairmen that they have the power because the elections take place at the constituencies and the branches. The Regional Organiser of the party, Mr Tawiah Boateng, advised the constituency executives of the party to stop issuing press statements that could divide the party but rather do things that could unite the party.
He assured them that the year 2006 was the "year for organization" to ensure that come 2008, the party wins the national elections. Jan. 19, 06
