The Deputy National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Godwin Ako Gunn, has served a strong warning to the party’s executives at the Constituency, Ward and Branch levels to desist from certain prevailing actions that run counter to the overall interest of the party. According to the firebrand communicator, ” there is a reason why we are spending a much longer time on the branches, it is to make sure we get the basic unit of the party right” so the party will not sit aloof to watch some defiant executives ruin its effort as it prepares for the 2024 polls.
He therefore reminded those executives of the consequences of such actions he considers as inimical to the party’s interest. Mr. Gunn wondered why some party executives in possession of party documents could not account for such documents while others seek to manipulate such documents in their interests.
The Party is currently embarking on what it calls an Outreach Program in all the Constituencies across the country to ascertain the party’s preparation towards the 2024 general elections with particular focus on the ongoing limited registration exercise for new members of the party.
Below is the full unedited post by Ako Gunn.
IF I CANT TRUST YOU WITH PARTY REGISTER, CAN I TRUST YOU WITH OUR PINK SHEETS?
BY: Godwin Ako Gunn
Registration of new members are going on smoothly in many places, while others are selfishly behaving like there is no tomorrow for this party. Let me announce to such people that there are consequences to all these. If you are reported and suspended, you can not be part of the process, and when the disciplinary committee finds you guilty, sorry, you can’t contest.
There is a reason why we are spending a much longer time on the branches, it is to make sure we get the basic unit of the party right. We are interested more in who becomes the branch executives than who becomes national officers, because the job is at the branches.
How can a coordinator, or a constituency executive say branch registers in his possession are missing so new books should be given for fresh registration? If you can not protect a register, how can you protect our election results?
Others too have seized books that don’t belong to them and populating them. It’s only a branch secretary who can add someone to the register and their cards signed by the chairman. This is just to caution you, if it comes up to the regional or national level, you will have yourself to blame.
It’s unfortunate others too are not meeting and as such are not allowing people access to our registration. This registration process is for all NDC members, you can not deny people registration and expect them to come out and work for victory 2024. No branch executive should cause pain in the heart of anyone. Together we stand.
Finally,let me say that the newly created branches may be a new addition to the number of branches we already have, but it doesn’t mean that everyone whose name is in that register is new. Neither does it mean that anyone at all can fill them. If you don’t vote there, don’t put your name there with the mindset to contest. The EC register can guide you incase you forgot where you voted, especially in clustered areas.
May God guide all of us as we work towards victory 2024. Thank you
