The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has issued a press statement indicating it will organise a “Probity and Accountability” march on November 26th, 2020, in of honour its founder Jerry John Rawlings who passed away on last week Thursday, November 12th, 2020.
The leadership of the NDC noted that the march will be held in conjunction with other political parties, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and other parties that affiliate with the principles that were zealously championed by late President Rawlings.
The statement further read, “The National Democratic Congress (NDC), wishes to inform the public that it will, in conjunction with other Political Parties, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and all progressive forces embark on a Probity and Accountability March, in honour of the memory and legacy of the Founder of the party and Ghana’s 4th Republic, Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings.”
“The march is scheduled for Thursday, 26th November 2020 in Accra and is intended to rekindle the principles of probity and accountability which were zealously championed by Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings, but have come under serious threats, as evident by recent developments in the country.”
However in what can be described as unionism and love for country, is a call from the NDC to executives and members of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) to join the march, “the NDC kindly invites all its teeming supporters, Political Parties including the ruling New Patriotic Party, CSOs and the public to join in this march, which is a befitting tribute to the memory of Ghana’s foremost anti-corruption giant.”
