Politics of Tuesday, 7 February 2017
Mr Francis Ganyaglo, former Deputy Volta Regional Minister, has said that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) was only on holidays and not dead.
He said the Party’s seemingly calmness meant it was organising to re-launch itself after the massive defeat in the December polls and not dead.
Mr Ganyaglo was addressing an end of year get-together for media practitioners in the Volta Region under the auspices of the Ghana Journalists Association, Volta, with support from Mr Emmanuel Bedzrah, Member of Parliament for Ho West and Mr Kwame Agbodza, Member of Parliament for Adaklu.
He said though the NDC was in opposition, the Party would maintain good relationship with the media to recapture power in 2020 and called for support from the media.
Mr Agbodza commended the media for its role in promoting good governance and charged it to ensure that projects started by past governments were completed.
He said the NDC was not against the creation of a new region in the Volta Region and prayed that the exercise was done to benefit all.
Mr Bedzrah asked the media not to see itself as for or against the government but should continue as an agent of development, irrespective of the political party in power.
He stated that the NDC Volta Caucus in Parliament had resolved to meet regularly with stakeholders in the Region to push for its rapid development.
Mr Bedzrah said the annual end of year get-together would be expanded to include all MPs in the Region and some chiefs.
He presented awards to three journalists and announced a sponsorship package for any journalist in the Region who would win the Best Reporter in Environment at the annual Ghana Journalists Association award ceremony.
