Accra, Sept. 08, GNA – Former President John Dramani Mahama has said, he would be participating in the Northern Region National Democratic Congress’ (NDC’s) “Unity Walk” in Tamale on Saturday, September 9.
He said the solidarity walk was designed to show that members of the party were one, and to raise the spirit of their people.
Former President Mahama made the announcement, in his address, on Friday, in Accra, during the induction of the first batch of students to be admitted at the Ghana Institute of Social Democracy (GISD), an ideological school of the NDC.
The GISD courses outlined in this module include, Political Leadership and Party Organisation and Political Activism; the History of the NDC, the Philosophy, Principles and Practice of Social Democracy.
The former President noted that the NDC had enough people in the Northern Region to ensure a successful “Unity Walk”; adding that it would be replicated in all the regions.
He explained that due to an international assignment, he would not be able to participate in the Greater Accra Region’s NDC “Unity Walk”.
He appealed to all party members and cadres to fully partake in the event in their respective regions in due course.
The induction ceremony was attended by former Vice President Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur; Mr Julius Debrah, former Chief of Staff; Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the General Secretary of the NDC; and Mr Lee Ocran, first National Vice Chairman/Acting National Chairman of the NDC.
Others are Professor William Ahadze, Acting Rector, GISD/the NDC’s Director of Research; Alhaji Huudu Yahaya, a Member of the NDC’s Council of Elders; and Madam Anita Desoso, a National Vice Chairperson of the NDC.
