At a ceremony to swear them into the NDC in Wa, the General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah called other regions to emulate the example of PPP Upper West by joining the socialist movement of the NDC.

The General Secretary posited that the only strongest progressive party in Ghana is the NDC, thus saying the NDC is the home for all progressive minds.
He said people must forget about ‘big names’ and slogans and join forces with the NDC to annex power from the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The former Regional Chairman of the PPP, Mr Adams Osman, who was sworn into the NDC, said the decision to join the NDC is to support the party to take power from the NPP.
