Kumasi, Jan. 29, GNA - Student and Youth Wings of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), have been admonished to endeavour to scrutinize the identity of those who infiltrate their camps under the guise of being genuine members of the party.
Alhaji Hamidu Mohammed, NDC Chairman for the Oforikrom Constituency, who made the call said such a measure would help prevent impostors from having access to the party's plans, strategies and tactics it was mapping up to chalk a landslide victory in the 2008 elections.
"As the country is gearing up for the elections, well-meaning NDC supporters should be vigilant and guard against any tricks from the opposition so as not to be overtaken by events", he said. Alhaji Mohammed was speaking at the Annual General meeting of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) branch of the Tertiary Educational Institution Network (TEIN) of the NDC in Kumasi on Saturday.
The meeting was designed to take stock of last year's activities with the view to formulating fresh ideas and strategies in augmenting the network's activities this year.
Alhaji Mohammed cautioned the students not to concentrate their activities in the cities but strive to reach out to people in the rural areas, saying, "you should explain the NDC's manifestoes and policies to them since they were the panacea to the country's socio-economic setbacks.
He further called on the students to desist from backbiting and divisiveness to enable them present a united front so as to enhance the party's chances of winning the 2008 elections. Mr Abdulai Abdul-Manan, acting President of the KNUST Branch of the TEIN of the NDC, expressed optimism that the network would put in place pro-active measures to increase their membership.
