Deputy National Youth Organizer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Ruth Dela Seddoh has sternly warned the naysayers in her party not to impede the progress of the party in their quest to liberate Ghanaians from the “clueless” Akufo-Addo government.

According to her, the youth of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) are hungry for power as they are poised and charged to return NDC to power come 2020 and so any force, person and group of persons trying to impede their progress will be fiercely resisted, taking a cue from their founder’s “positive defiance” mantra.

She bemoaned the bad blood which has taken the centre stage of the NDC, reminding her party folks not to forget how the 31st December Revolution brought together people with diverse opinions and ideas to form National Democratic Congress (NDC) and restored the deteriorated economy in the 4th Republic.

“For many of us who are young, the economy was running in negatives. People had to be in long queues for kenkey, don't touch me soap etc. Kalabule was the order of the day. Within the shortest time, the PNDC restored Ghana's economy to normalcy through sweeping economic reforms, notably, The Economic Recovery Programme. The PNDC laid the foundation stone for the 4th Republic and the gains thereof can be largely attributed to the 31st December Revolution. That history must not be lost on anyone”.

“It is the revolution that gave birth to the National Democratic Congress; a congress of diverse ideas, opinions and people but united with a purpose. Today, the situation is not the same. There is so much internal rancor, disrespect for leadership, name calling and character assassination. We recorded our worse defeat ever in 2016 and it seems we haven't gotten over it yet, the earlier we do and prepare for the task ahead of us, the better for us and the future of the masses”, she bemoaned.

The NDC Deputy National Youth Organizer however urged the rank and file of NDC to consider the interest and welfare of the masses as a social democratic party guided by the principles of probity, accountability and social justice.

“In all circumstances, the interest and welfare of the masses is always supreme in our considerations. Somehow, we faltered somewhere along the line, human became Zeus, with no listening ears and disregard for our youth and party hierarchy”.

“To our flag bearer aspirants, the youth want to hear more from you, we want to know what is in stock for us. Whilst at it, be kindly reminded that we are in an internal contest, we are in this together, power in 2020 is our prime interest and we urge you all, don't divide us, unite us, don't use us, but partner us”.

“To our founder and leader of the revolution, Sir, many of us, the youth take serious inspiration from your ideals of probity, transparency, accountability, integrity and social justice. Your unparalleled leadership qualities of promoting grassroots participatory democracy will continue to guide us even as we wrestle for power in 2020”.

Addressing the 37th anniversary of the 31st December Revolution, Ruth Dela Seddoh extended the warning to the newly appointed Electoral Commission Chairperson, Jean Naana Mensah to work for Ghanaians in spite of her political affiliation to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).

“To the naysayers, I would like to issue a stern warning to you that the youth of NDC are hungry for power. We are more than poised and charged to return NDC to power come 2020. Any force, person or group of persons who try to impede our progress will be fiercely resisted and we take a cue from our founder's, "POSITIVE DEFIANCE" mantra”.

“I would like to end by alerting the newly appointed  EC chairperson, we know your political affiliation, we are watching you closely. You were appointed by an NPP government, but you must work for Ghanaians. Stop leading us to a funeral parlour. Let me re-echo to you that any attempt to gerrymander election 2020 would be met with a hot chase, madam chairperson, beware!”

Touching on Akufo-Addo’s administration, Ruth Dela Seddoh said the current happenings in Ghana is not what were promised to Ghanaians as corruption is at the highest peak, prices of petroleum products are skyrocketing, prices of foodstuffs and other consumables are the highest in many years as well as poor performance of the Cedi among other Currencies.

“We now have a family and friends league of a government with so much cluelessness in the system. Tax rates are high and so much youth unemployment making us sit on a keg of gun-powder. Our market women are suffering, our drivers are suffering and our business men are suffering whilst banks are collapsing. We don't have the luxury of time, let’s get together, win political power and fix the system, it is possible! Ghanaians deserve better and we can do it better for them”, she charged.
