The South African National Democratic Congress Council of Elders Chair and the Group Chairman for Allied Consortiums, Mr. Benjamin Kofi Quashie has indicated that the NDC would give Ghanaians a message of hope going into the 2024 elections.
That message of hope would resonate with the Ghanaian people, which seeks to redeem them from the current economic mess. Speaking on ‘Epa Ho A Daben’ show on Happy FM, the SA NDC chair, claimed that, it wouldn’t be a message for just winning elections but, a message that is redeemable after winning the 2024 elections.
When his attention was drawn to the fact that politicians normally promise and don’t deliver, he assured, “we would deliver. We’ve learnt our lessons in opposition and we’ve a leader who wants to rally everyone around to build a better Ghana that we all want together”, he stated.
“The focus would be ‘building together’. We wouldn’t be selective and be focusing on friends and family, cronies here and there but, building it together”, Mr. Quashie emphasized. Again when his attention was drawn to the fact that ‘would the NDC use known NPP people to help them in building the Ghana we want?’ He answered in the affirmative saying, “This is common knowledge. The Senchi consensus brought everyone on board to solicit ideas to help our country then. The likes of Kwame Pianim and other learned people from the opposition with regards to the economy were there”, he stressed.
According to him, this is possible because President Mahama is an all-inclusive person and would consult anyone who has ideas to help salvage our fortunes. “Like he (President Mahama) says, we’ll need to be patriotic. We find ourselves in a ditch, let’s all come out of it together”, he shared, in reference to President Mahama’s all inclusive nature.
In his opinion, President Mahama is not going to be adamant and ignore sane suggestions from others but, would coalesce such ideas to build a better Ghana for us to enjoy.
