Published

on

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) will hold a special National Delegates Congress at the end of 2021, to deliberate on important issues affecting the party.

The National Chairman of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, said this is necessary because anytime such a forum is convened for elections, the critical issues affecting the party are missed.

This, he said, is because more attention is usually paid to the elections to the detriment of these issues.

Mr Ofosu-Ampofo said this on Friday, June 4 in Accra at the party’s forum to mark the 42nd anniversary of the June 4th Uprising on the theme, ‘The Relevance of June 4 to Contemporary Ghanaian Democracy.’

He said the special National Delegates Congress of the party would look at the structure of the party, constitutional review and how to reposition the party to take the commanding heights of democracy in the country.

“We will make it an all-inclusive activity and bring all stakeholders on board, so that everybody would be found to be part of it. Together, we build this party and no one will be left behind,” he said.

Mahama’s Promise To Cancel E-levy Is A Political Talk – NPP

Published

The ruling government New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said John Mahama's promise to Ghanaian to scrap the E-levy if NDC win power in 2024 is a just a political tlak.

The ruling government New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said John Mahama’s promise to Ghanaian to scrap the E-levy if NDC win power in 2024 is a just a political talk.

According to NPP, the e-levy which started on Sunday, May 1 cannot be abolished by the NDC party.

Just like the one-time premium and the repeal of talk tax that John Mahama and his NDC promised, but failed to implement when they were in power, this promise is just a political talk.”

“In any event, can John Mahama explain the difference between his 17.5% tax on financial transactions and his manifesto pledge to impose a uniform tax on all electronic transactions? Are these measures E-Levy in disguise and does he stand by them?” Communications Director of the NPP Yaw Buaben Asamoa wondered at a press conference in Accra Wednesday.

He stressed: “If we reflect deeply, we will accept, as the records show, that significant change to our political institutions and conduct, economic structure and management and positive social impact, has mostly happened under the NPP’s watch.

“Many very significant national reverses occurred under the six years of John Mahama’s Presidency. He has since been rejected twice in elections. It’s possible his recent address is motivated by self-preservation towards his continued leadership of the NDC into 2024, given that both insiders and external observers are writing him off”.

He added: “Under John Mahamas’ leadership, Ghana will slip backwards into chaotic incompetence. Just like his autobiography tells all, he cannot take decisions. As he says in his book, he will ride this country like a bicycle, out of control and dangerously downhill, merely hopeful of survival.

“The 2024 presidential election is expected to be about two choices: whether we choose to build on the significant gains so far made under President Akufo-Addo with a new presidential candidate from the NPP who comes with his or her own fresh ideas as well or to choose the candidate the NDC are threatening to bring back, John Dramani Mahama.”
