NDC MARKS ANNIVERSSARY WITH A MOMENT OF SILENT FOR DEPARTED …
The National Democratic Congress remains one of the biggest political parties in Ghana. The party has contributed immensely to the development of the country through the various projects they have undertaken when they had the chance to rule Ghana.
The party was funded by the late President Jerry John Rawlings. He built the party on the principles of probity and accountability. Over the years, the NDC has won various elections and has lost some. Many leaders have led the party since its inception. Some of these leaders have departed to eternity with the rest working to make sure the party wins the next election.
The Party is celebrating its 29th anniversary and a lot of activities have been instituted to mark the day. The Sad news is that some heroes of the party are currently no more to witness the day. Let’s hold a minute’s silence for the souls of Mr. Kwabena Adjei, John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills, Paa Kwasi Amissah Arthur, and Jerry John Rawlings who have unfortunately died.
