Prof. Jane Opoku-Agyemang calls for urgent national reset on party's 32nd anniversary

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has celebrated its 32nd anniversary with a flag-raising ceremony at its headquarters in Accra on Monday

The celebration was marked by fervent calls for a national reset to address pressing developmental challenges.

Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, the party’s vice-presidential candidate, emphasized the need for a transformative approach to governance.

Addressing party members and leaders, including Chairman Johnson Asiedu Nketia, General Secretary Fiifi Fiavi Kwetey, and National Organiser Joseph Yamin, Prof. Opoku-Agyemang lamented the cyclical pattern of governance that hampers national progress.

"The country will have to be reset so that we stop this back and forth. If one group comes to clean and another comes to destroy, how can we make progress as a country?" she questioned.

Reflecting on the NDC's history, she honored the party's founders and their enduring vision.

“We, today, are the beneficiaries of those who started this a long time ago. They thought that the nation needed help, and they stayed the course. It is our turn now,” Prof. Opoku-Agyemang remarked, urging current members to uphold the party’s legacy.

Chairman Johnson Asiedu Nketia acknowledged that while the NDC has faced challenges, its contributions to national development are undeniable.

He criticized opposing political forces for undoing the NDC's efforts, stating,

“We are always the party that comes to clean the mess. When we leave, others come and destroy everything that we have built.”

Asiedu Nketia also highlighted concerns over the militarization of the electoral process, particularly noting the deployment of armed forces during voter transfer exercises.

“If there is any voice of conscience in the country, this is the right time for them to speak,” he warned.

As the NDC prepares for the upcoming December elections, its leaders emphasize the importance of maintaining a united front and focusing on sustainable development to overcome the nation’s challenges.
