“We are expecting over two thousand (2,000) supporters of our great Party including the former President, John Dramani Mahamah to converge at Captain Nfodjo Park, Ho, the Volta Regional Capital for the 36th Anniversary of the 31st December Revolution”, that’s according to the Chairman of The Local Organizing Committee and the Volta Regional MPs’ caucus Chairman, Emmanuel Kwasi Bedzrah.
He said, “we’re expecting about 2,000 NDC members from the host region, but there are indications that, more people are coming from all the regions across Ghana.
In an interview with ahead of the Anniversary, Mr. Bedzrah who is the Member of Parliament for Ho West, was optimistic that, several people, individuals and groups affiliated to The NDC have designed their own banner, T-shirt and other paraphernalia to come and shakeup Ho township.
According to him, why the Volta Region was chosen was because they know that, without Volta, NDC cannot stand, adding that, “NDC is Volta and Volta is NDC.
Therefore, if we really want to get the soul of The Party back, by uniting around The Party using the vehicle of the 31st December and former President, then we should be using Volta Region.”
The NDC leadership is coming because we’ve invited the Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of The Party and we’re sure of their participation, Mr. Bedzrah disclosed.
The activities lineup included, match pass through some of the principal streets in Ho, a wreath-laying and the lighting of the perpetual flame at the ceremony which will be graced by The Leader of The Revolution, Founder of The NDC and former President, Flt Lt. Jerry John Rawlings.
At the inaugural meeting of the Local Organizing Committee, it was revealed that, the commemoration is a sober and reflective moment which seeks to remind the Ghanaian populace of the principles that underpinned the popular revolution.
The 2017 celebration is focusing on “Uniting around the principles of probity, accountability and social justice.”
