The National Democratic Congress (NDC) marked its 32nd anniversary with a flag-raising ceremony at its headquarters in Accra, celebrating its history and reaffirming its commitment to the upcoming December 2024 elections.

The NDC, founded by the Late Jerry John Rawlings, held the event to commemorate its establishment in preparation for the 1992 elections, which saw Rawlings elected as president.

The ceremony was attended by notable party members, including Running mate Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman, Chairman Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, General Secretary Fiifi Fiavi Kwetey, National Youth Organizer George Opare Addo, National Vice Chairman Professor Joshua Alabi, and MP for Klottey Korle Dr. Zenator Rawlings.

Addressing attendees, National Chairman Johnson Asiedu Nketiah emphasized the party’s focus on winning the upcoming elections rather than on festivities. He highlighted the challenges faced by the party, describing their opponent as formidable, especially when considering the collaborators working against them.

Reflecting on the NDC’s history, Mr. Nketiah acknowledged that while the party hasn’t achieved all its goals, it has not failed in its 32 years of existence. He cautioned against undoing the progress made, warning of efforts to destabilize the country’s foundation.

Mr. Nketiah also raised concerns about the militarization of the electoral process, citing instances where military personnel have intimidated citizens during voter transfers, calling for voices of conscience to speak out against such injustices.

General Secretary Fiifi Fiavi Kwetey urged party members to prioritize genuine love for the party over loyalty to individuals, emphasizing that loyalty to the party should come first. He warned against aligning too closely with specific individuals, as this could lead to struggles when those individuals are no longer present.

The NDC’s anniversary celebration was a reminder of its commitment to its founding principles and its determination to secure victory in the upcoming elections.
