The Center for Progressive Governance (CenProG) has followed with keen interest the recent back and forth within the the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the largest opposition party in Ghana and as such supposed to act as a Government-in-waiting.

In the aftermath of a gargantuan election loss, the NDC rightly set up a committee to investigate the circumstances surrounding the loss and make recommendations to that effect. Many political pundits hailed the move since the committee was not to be at the whims of a privileged few but open to all members of the party.

CenProG is therefore taken aback that some party stalwarts who ought to know better are running to the media to air their grievances instead of facing the committee set up for same. This unwarranted move if not checked could plunge the NDC into political oblivion and render their base ineffective for 2020.

Leading members of the NDC have been proferring varied reasons for their party's loss and some in their attempt to absolve themselves are rather muddying the waters by trying to incite their supporters against HE John Mahama. This move is highly counterproductive since the former President seems to wield a lot of influence amongst the support base of the party.

CenProG believes that until the NDC stops the blame games and collectively accept the blame for their abysmal performance in the 2012 elections, the NDC has no chance whatsoever in any future elections.

For now, the grassroots of the NDC remains resolute and undivided in the midst of the chaos at the top and so the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Party needs to, as a matter of urgency, takes steps to halt this trend before it affects the base of the party. To this end, the NDC might have to take a cue from the ruling party, New Patriotic Party (NPP) as to how they dealt with a similar canker in the run up to the 2012 elections.

CenProG believes that the oppostion has a role to play in order for the NPP government to render quality and accountable governance. The NDC therefore owes it to Ghanaians to stay united and not shirk their responsibilities in the name of fighting eachother to stay relevant.

God Bless our homeland Ghana and make it GREAT and STRONG.
