NDC Needs $20 Million 4/11/2007
…To Win 2008 Elections
For the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to win the 2008 general elections, it will need a colossal amount of $20million.
Investigations conducted by The Crusading Guide newspaper has established that the party owed ¢650 million from the Congress it held at Koforidua last year.



According to a source who was at the NDC’s ‘family meeting which was held at the Coco Beach hotel, Nungua, the $20million needed for the electioneering campaign and other logistics was proposed by Dr. Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, one of the party’s defeated presidential candidates. Spio-Garbrah’s intervention was in response to Professor Atta Mill’s (the flagbearer) wish that members of the NDC would donate old pick-up towards the 2008 elections.



Spio-Garbrah was also quoted as saying that the party lacked resources and the will to move forward. He promised better resources and quality leadership. He also said, “you gave your mandate to Mills; so how will resources come?”. “When Mills could no longer absorb the heat, he had to leave the meeting with the excuse that he was going to address a press conference that morning”, our source intimated. The Minority leader in Parliament, Alban Bagbin alleged that Prof. Atta Mills was visiting constituencies without informing the Members of Parliament (MPs). “Observing that he (Mills) had left the meeting, Bagbin wondered whether he (Mills) was serious”, the source added.



He further told the Crusading Guide newspaper that the Minority Leader alleged that for five years he had requested from Mills his handing-over notes as Vice President; and that he only got the handing-over notes last month. At the meeting with the top NDC figures, the investigative team from Crusading Guide learnt there were three whites and four blacks who were described as consultants to advise the NDC on its 2008 election chances.


They were said to have distributed questionnaires that centered around the strength of the NDC, weaknesses, opportunities, threats to the party, public attitude towards the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and also weaknesses of the NPP.
