A consortium of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) youth and women groups in Tamale called the NDC Coalition said former President John Evans Atta Mills’ bereavement should serve as a symbol of reconciliation and unity among party members.
The group noted with deep concern that the late President Mills was bent on reconciling all NDC members ahead of the December polls for which reason his unfortunate death should not deepen the cracks within the party.
President of the Coalition, Ziblim Yakubu Emmanuel, made the statement at the party’s northern regional Secretariat where he signed the book of condolence.
He said the sad news about President Mills’ death came as a shock to the youth and women wings of the NDC in Tamale.
Ziblim conveyed his group’s condolence to the former first lady, Naadu Mills and the entire nation which is gearing up for the one week memorial service scheduled for Tuesday July 31.
He recalled some of the late President’s traits as humility, loyalty, firmness and peace.
Yakubu hoped his death would also encourage the NDC youth and women to help the Mahama administration complete the unfinished “Better Ghana” agenda.
He congratulated President Mahama and described him as an astute politician who should be supported to deliver on the NDC campaign promises.
He further implored leaders and supporters of the various political parties to exercise maximum restraint on their campaign platforms to ensure peaceful elections on December 7.
