Don''t take partisan view of national issues - NDC 4/10/2007
Accra, April 09, GNA - Ghanaians have been urged to discuss national issues devoid of partisan and sectional consideration to foster national unity, stability and cohesion.

The Chairman of the Odododiodoo Constituency of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Daniel Nii Okai, stated this at meeting with party supporters in Accra, on Sunday.

He said this was the only way the country could move forward in its development efforts and entrench the democratic culture that Ghana had embarked on.

Mr Okai said issues like the current energy crisis facing the country, "Affected everybody be he an NPP, PNC or NDC supporter, which makes imperative for all citizens and groups to come together to find a solution to the problem".

"It should not be seen as a problem for the government alone to solve", he said, adding that, "If any citizen has an antidote he should not be left out because of his political affiliation". He said the recent offer by the NDC to help solve the energy crisis should not be seen by the government as "A defeat or a slight that it is incapable. If one is not able and can not call for help, he must be rescued".

The Odododiodoo NDC Chairman expressed concern about what he said was the attitude of the government of "Not involving others in discussing and planning of national issues and programmes like the Ghana at 50 to mark the Golden Jubilee of the country''s Independence celebration".

Mr Okai said, "This is not good enough and does not augur well for the national reconciliation that it has been preaching about". He asked supporters of the NDC to "disregard the negative propaganda of the pro-government press to dust and smear the party and the Founder" saying, "If the former President was not a democrat he would not have handed over power peacefully to the NPP".

Mr Okai said the NDC was a democratic party and would never take power by force and said the government was afraid because it had realised its failure and stated that "Come December 2008 and the NDC will march gracefully to the Castle to take over the mantle of government after the elections".
