The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has extended its warmest felicitations to Ghanaians on the occasion of the country’s 57th independence anniversary.
In a statement issued in Accra and signed by Mr Johnson Asiedu-Nketiah, General Secretary of the NDC, the NDC appealed to all Ghanaians to be guided by the sacrifices made by the nation’s leaders who fought to free the country from the shackles of colonialism.
“We believe our forefathers foresaw a bright and prosperous future through hard work and dedication. The NDC urges Ghanaians to use the occasion to remind ourselves of the need to continue to uphold the principles of the founding fathers, which are enshrined in the country’s motto – freedom and justice”, the statement said.
It said the hard work and unity of Ghana’s forbearers had culminated in the peace that Ghana had enjoyed over the past five decades and the NDC expected Ghanaians would work for the maintenance of the peace and stability prevailing in the country.
The statement said the NDC was committed to the course of democratic governance being pursued by Ghana and would not relent on its efforts to collaborate with all stakeholders to nurture and sustain multi-party rule in Ghana.
The NDC urged Ghanaians to on this occasion remember the sacrifices of the forefathers, workers, farmers, fishermen, the security services, women, the youth and all Ghanaians who had toiled to bring Ghana that far.
The statement expressed the hope that the examples of Ghana’s forefathers would inspire the current generation in efforts to build a better Ghana.
