General News of Sunday, 31 December 2017
Former President Mahama has said the principles of probity, accountability and social Justice which underpinned the 31st December 1981 revolution cannot be lost on the NDC, as it’s an offspring of that junta.
He said even though the tenets of probity and acoountability as practiced during the revolution era could differ from constitutional era, the party was well awake to its founding principle.
The former President was speaking at the 36th anniversary commemoration of the 31st December revolution held in Ho in the Volta region on Sunday.
The event brought together the rank and file of the NDC as well as party stalwarts to reflect on the theme ‘Uniting around the principles of Probity, accountability and social Justice.’
Mr. Mahama also used the opportunity to urge party faithful to commit to the reorganisation process they work to build a resilient NDC for election 2020.
He nonetheless took a swipe at the governing NPP, daring President Akufo-addo to carry out his threat to prosecute alleged corrupt officials of the erstwhile NDC government.
According to him, all persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty by a competent court, thus urged party faithful to show solidarity for former appointees who might fall victims.
