Be guided by your consciences not to sell votes – Richard Kasu warns NDC delegates

The Executive Director of the Community Focus Foundation (CFF), in Ghana, Richard Kasu has cautioned delegates of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) not to sell their votes to any of the aspirants contesting for a position in the party.

According to him, the future of the party is being threatened by excessive monetization of its internal political processes as witnessed in recent times.

Mr. Kasu said it was critically important to prompt political players when veering off the path of democratic consolidation and noted that whatever affects the NDC may one way or the other have direct or indirect effects on Ghana’s democratic credentials.

“NDC delegates just like any other delegate of the political process occupy privileged positions in their political party and it is critically important their judgment including voting for people seeking political office must at all times reflect the aspirations and the hopes of party members on whose behalf they are exercising those internal voting obligations.” Mr. Kasu said.

The Executive Director of CFF added that pledging to the highest bidder of the party is a dangerous act especially when the person with the “huge money bag is not for purpose.”

“Let the aspirant’s dedication to duty and meritorious service to the NDC and Ghana be the influencer of your decisions to choose the best team to steer the affairs of the party.” Mr. Kasu added.

He further commended the former President, John Dramani Mahama for intervening in the rift between the National Youth Organizer, George Opare Addo (Pablo), and National Communication Officer, Sammy Gyamfi.

Mr. Kasu also felicitated all aspirants for taking a huge step in the party. “may the best candidates emerge victorious for God, Party, and Country.” He added.

The 10th National Delegates Congress of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is set to take place on Saturday, December 17, 2022, at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The Congress invites over 9000 delegates from across the country to the Stadium to elect new executives who will steer the affairs of the party at the national level and work on their win in the 2024 general elections.
