The Eastern Regional Chairman for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Bismarck Tawiah Boateng has sternly appealed to his party members in the country not to trade insults and blows at the Professor Kwesi Botchwey led committee.
According to him, such interruptions during the Committee’s meetings will mar the intent of the party to unravelling the cause of the defeat the NDC suffered in the 2016 general elections.
Hearing by the Prof. Kwesi Botchwey led committee probing the 2016 election defeat of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) party was once again interrupted following a fight between two internal opposing groups in the Lower Manya Krobo Constituency on Friday.
The clashes led to injury of some supporters of the party.
Angry youth stormed the Somanya Community Center where the meeting was being held with placards in protest against their executives accusing them of collapsing the party in a constituency which is the NDC stronghol,d hence the party’s unprecedented shambolic performance in the constituency in 2016.
In view of the happenings in the Committee’s meetings, Mr. Tawiah Boateng on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' Morning Show urged his party members not to engage in scuffle to ruin the Committee’s work to ascertain the cause of the party’s defeat in last year’s elections.
“I want to take this opportunity to make our party members to understand that if Kwesi Botchwey’s Committee engages you in a meeting to ascertain the cause of defeat, don’t engage them in a scuffle but rather be bold to speak the truth to the committee if even your comment is against any personality present at the meeting,” he urged.
“This will help the Committee to know how the defeat came about and work against it. We know that NDC will come back to power with God on our side, but we should do things in truth, in modest and in unity as a party,” he averred.
