Mr Kofi Mintah, Founding Member of National Democratic Congress (NDC), has suggested the need for the party to set up a complaint unit, to enable members to seek redress for their grievances.
Mr Mintah, former Central Regional Chairman of the party said the unit would prevent members from washing their dirty linen in public. He was reacting to the backlash of the public against prominent personalities in the party and government officials who resorted to the media to air their disdain against some developments in the NDC.
Speaking to Ghana News Agency in an interview in Winneba on Tuesday, he said the NDC should organise regular meetings to enable members who do have no access to party leaders to discuss common problems.
Mr Mintah appealed to Ghanaians to give President John Dramani Mahama ample time to fix things and also fight corruption. He said Ghanaians should not sacrifice the image of the country for political advantage.
Mr Mintah noted that government is facing difficult times and appealed to members and supporters of the party “not to abandon the President mid-way the stream”. He said the President needs the support of all, especially the founding members to fight corruption.
“Fighting corruption should be seen as collective responsibility but not for the President alone,” he added.
The Founding Member said whoever is criticising the President should do so constructively and must not use partisan politics as a weapon for condemnation. “We are part of the problem and must all help to correct it but not to shift the blame on the President.”
