Mr Emmanuel Aboagye Didieye, Member of Parliament for Afraim Plains North, has appealed to supporters of the National Democratic Congress not to celebrate after the Supreme Court delivers its verdict on August 29.

He said this is essential to safe guard the peace and unity of the nation saying: “No matter how the verdict of the Supreme Court goes, we all have to accept it”.

Mr Didieye said this during the first general meeting of the National Forum of National Democratic Congress Constituency Chairmen (NAFOCOC) in Accra.

The forum which brought together constituency chairmen of the party across the country with the exception of the Greater Accra Region was on the theme: “Promoting the welfare and sustenance of political activists for accelerated peace and development”.

Conspicuously absent from the function were the current functional national executive committee of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), regional chairmen and Senior Ministers of State.

He urged the party chairmen to set aside the August 25 -26, for a peace march throughout the country and use it to sensitize the people on the need to preserve the peace and stability of the nation.

Mr Didieye appealed to them to inculcate in the young ones the culture of tolerance and to avoid politics of insults.

“In your own small way, do something that will bring peace and development to our great party and the nation.

“Without peace, there can be no sustainable development,” he said.

Mr Didieye, himself a former constituency chairman and the youngest Member of Parliament in the current Parliament, said NAFOCOC is not a pressure group within the NDC, but rather it seeks to promote the well-being of both present and past constituency executives of the party.

He said the NDC’s match to victory in the 2016 election has begun and all must put their shoulders to the wheels.
