All 10 regional chairmen of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have asked former president John Mahama to embark on a ‘Thank you tour’ to appreciate party loyalists for their support during the December 2016 polls.
They believe the tour, although belated, will help in the party’s reconciliatory and healing process.
Following the NDC’s defeat in the December 2016, there appear to be pockets of disgruntled members divided over who was responsible for the party’s defeat.
The National leadership of the party tasked a special Committee led by Prof. Kwesi Botchwey to tour the country to listen to concerns of party members after it was evident the many of the party’s supporters were not happy with the results of the election.
The party has also undertaken 3 Unity Walks in Accra, Tamale and Cape Coast as part of the healing process.
The 10 regional chairmen of the party, under whose leadership the party suffered the electoral defeat believe the former President’s “thank you tour” will help in such efforts to ensure peace and unity within the party ahead of the 2020 polls.
