Regional retreat ends with health walk in Tamale


imageimageGovernment appointees have rounded up a three-day regional retreat with a health walk in Tamale with Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) from Northern, Upper East And Upper West regions and some bigwigs of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The walk which started at 6 am Sunday morning at the Tamale jubilee park through some principal streets of the metropolis ended at about 8 am with party bigwigs address.

The MMDCEs during the retreat were taking through the rudiments of their work by seasoned experts in local governance such as Professor Kwamena Ahoi, Totobi Kwakye and Faustina Nelson.

The regional retreat preceded the presidential retreat which was held at Ho in the Volta region. The regional retreat which was patronized by activists of the NDC was to energize and also take a sober reflection ahead of the crucial 2016 general elections.

Top guns including the Chief of Staff, Mr Julius Debrah and some Ministers took turns to explain how far President John Dramani Mahama led administration #Changinglifes Transforming Ghana project is and the need for them to explain the government policies to the people.

Bickering and acrimony that are seemingly creeping into the party in the regions were also addressed with the aim of winning the 2016 general elections not less than 57%.

Speaking to the media, the Northern Regional Minister, Alhaji Mohammed-Muniru Limuna said the health walk was to examine the health status of party faithfuls to execute the 2016 elections campaign properly for a resounding victory.

He told the media that even though that the NDC will not win in a silver platter, the party has no doubt of winning the elections because the people of Ghana are not ungrateful people judging from the developmental projects in the various districts across the country.

The party he said, will also direct its effort to ensuring that the spoiled ballot trend in the every general election is reduced to the barest minimum especially among its members and Ghanaians in general.

In the last elections, ‘ the spoiled ballot party’ beat almost all the smaller political parties and placed third which do not auger well for democracy, Alhaji Limuna added.

Alhaji Limuna hinted that government is making efforts to resource the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) to take up the national education.
