Greater Accra executives of NVP elected
Mr Aaron King, national chairman of the New Vision Party (NVP), said the party was founded on social democratic principles and was committed to pursuing policies that would bring development to all Ghanaians.
He said the country's poor development compared with its abundant resources was as a result of greed by its leaders and accused the Government of mismanaging state resources.
Mr King said these at NVP congress to elect its Greater Accra regional branch executives on Saturday in Accra.
