STATEMENT BY NDC PROFESSIONALS FORUM
WALKED, HEALED AND UNITED FOR VICTORY
After the electoral defeat in 2016, members of the National Democratic Congress suffered humiliation, taunting and abuse.
We became hopeless as our leaders at all levels began blaming each other for our electoral defeat.
The Party appointed a Committee to embark on a nationwide search for [ads1]the reasons why we lost and make attempts at healing the emotional pain and agony of our rank and file.
We spoke but we were not healed.
Then came the magic of Unity Walk:
In our view, in the 26 years of NDC politics, three distinct events have occurred that achieved the most in terms of membership mobilisation and loyalty.
One was the event leading to the 1992 Cape Coast National Congress
The second was the grief that united us following the death of our Beloved President PROF JOHN EVANS ATTA MILLS
The third of course is the NDC Unity Walk:
The Unity Walk has been one unique phenomenon in the contemporary history of Ghana and NDC politics.
It has become unparalleled, in healing the pains and agony of members, galvanizing their energies and rebuilding a true sense of membership and ownership of the NDC.
From the great minds that conceived the idea of Unity Walk, the first Walk in Tamale. It grew from strength to strength against both internal and external oppression and suppression.
We need to congratulate the gallant organizers on their fortitude, forbearance and resilience.
For it is in a crisis that natural leaders emerge, and they indeed have exhibited and demonstrated their true leadership and mass organizational skills.
To them and all those who in diverse ways made the Regional Walks such a success, we say Ayeekoooo.
How proud are we that, former President Manama did not allow opposing voices to stop him but stayed loyal to the Unity Walk.
Some young Ladies who participated in the Tarkwa Walk were heard saying…Hei this Gonja Man is strong oooo. See how many miles he has walked and he is still not tired….
We in the NDC Professionals Forum are of high expectation that the upcoming Unity Walk slated for Volta Region, a region commonly referred to as the World Bank of the Party will receive massive attendance. This walk is seen by many to climax all the Regional Walks
We are dreaming of the idea of the last UNITY WALK in Accra, soon after the Regional Congresses of the Party. For this rally, we expect all former National Council of Elders, the Former Presidents and wives as well as the wife of Late Prof Atta Mills including all Flagbearer Aspirants, to be invited.
Those Aspirants who will attend should be allowed to address our members.
The National Unity Rally should be climaxed with the much-awaited declaration
TO CONTEST OR NOT TO CONTEST
In this case, Former President John Manama, will hand over a HEALED Party, If he is not contesting and / or a UNITED Party if he is going to contest.
On behalf of the entire NDC PROFESSIONALS FORUM, let me congratulate the former President H. E. John Manama, the organizers and all members of the NDC who in diverse ways contributed to the success of the UNITY WALKS .
