The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expressed optimism that it will bounce back into power in the year 2020, following regrets on the part of Ghanaians over the leadership of NPP in the past few months.
The party however believes their come back, will not materialize if members do not channel their energies in reorganizing the party towards victory 2020.
Some senior members of the party after the party lost the polls blamed and pointed accusing fingers at the executive and former president John Dramani Mahama.
But addressing the press today [Wednesday], National Chairman of the largest opposition party, Kofi Portuphy appealed for cessation of the public bickering.
He also charged those who are vying for position to be reminded of the reorganization of the party instead of their quest for positions.
He said: …I have had cause to appeal for cessation of the public bickering. Today I wish to make a fresh appeal especially to those nursing leadership ambitions in in the NDC; Let us not put the cart before the horse. The task we face now is reorganization of the party and mobilization for victory. Those who aspire to leadership positions, including the flagbearership position, must understand that they will need a strong, united and formidable party to stand behind them in the quest to regain power in 2020.’’
He also admonished party supporters to ‘’act in ways that play into the hands of the ruling NPP which appears determined to use its presidential and parliamentary majority to rule We with impunity and arrogance. All of us from the rank and file to senior members must understand that we cannot fight the NPP with a divided front. And if we, by our actions create a void, our detractors will continue to fill the void with falsehoods.’’
He reminded party supporters that the NDC encountered similar challenges in the year 2000 but managed tp put the challenges behind them and won the 2008 general polls.
‘’The NDC can do it again, not in eight (8) years but God willing in 4 years.’’
The NDC he stressed will bounce back because Ghanaians are expressing anger and are disappointed in the current administration for failing in their promises.
‘’The NDC will re-organize. The NDC will unite. We [NDC] will emerge stronger having learnt our lessons, ‘’he stated.
