Candidates who intend to run for office are being asked to conduct themselves with the utmost candour, decency, and diplomacy before, during, and after the constituency-level elections.
The NDC continues to be a peaceful party, thus the candidates were urged to try to avoid controversy, violence, and needless drama.
On September 20, 2022, Donatus Akamugri, the NDC’s Upper East Regional Secretary, made these remarks in an interview with Mark Kwasi Ahumah Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show.
According to Mr. Akamugri, there were sufficient safeguards in place to address any potential problems that might arise. He advised NDC candidates and members to use the party’s internal channels to resolve disputes.
“I would take this opportunity to advise that if a decision is taken and you are not happy, don’t take the law into your hands. Don’t rush into the centre and start organising violence because our party is not known to be a violent party.”
“We are a peaceful party and for that matter, all the structures are made for you. If somebody had erred or a decision has been taken and you think it has not been properly done, you ought to go to the next level. The arrangements have been done in such a way that from the constituency you can go to the regional level. From the regional level, you can go to the national level.”
The Regional Secretary of the NDC continued to say, “we would urge that everybody respects the tenets of our party.”
