A Presidential Staffer Kale Caesar has admonished members of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) in troubled constituencies in the Upper West Region to put aside their egos and work towards retaining the party in power by voting massively in the 2016 general elections.
In an interview with Ultimate News’ Musah Lansah in Wa, he attributed unresolved disputes in some of the constituencies to the ego factor among members in the area.
Some constituencies in the Upper West Wegion notably Lawra, Wa East, Nandom and Sissala have been embroiled in misunderstandings which rose out of the parliamentary primaries of the NDC in 2015.
Though the party has tried reconciling the feuding factions, it is yet to yield results as no side is willing to concede to the reconciliation process.
This development Mr. Caeser noted is not healthy for the party as it goes into the 2016 elections.
He intimated that though its normal to have people peeved due to unfair treatment, members of the party should think of the bigger interest of the party.
Citing Former President John Kuffuor’s argument that, “it’s better to be a messenger in a ruling party than being a General Secretary in an opposition party” to buttress his point, the presidential staffer urged District Chief Executives (DCEs) who are in those areas to take responsibility of reconciling the party.
According to him, “in areas where the DCE’s are part of the conflict, they (DCEs) should be the ones leading the reconciliation process. If the DCE decides to unite the executives, there is nothing the MP or the candidate can do than being part of the team”.
On the chances of the party in the elections, Mr. Caeser expressed optimism that the party will win all the 11 seats in the region.
According to him, the ruling NDC has done so well in the region that, the people will not hesitate to give them another chance to rule the country.
