1 min read

The National Democratic Congress (NDC), has announced that come Thursday, 26th November, 2020, it will together with other political parties, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and all progressive forces embark on a Probity and Accountability March, in honor of the memory and legacy of the Founder of the party and Ghana’s 4th Republic, Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings.

According to the party, the march in Accra “is intended to rekindle the principles of probity and accountability which were zealously championed by Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings, but have come under serious threats, as evident by recent developments in the country.”

The party said it believes that it is imperative at this time to rally Ghanaians to uphold and respect the principles of probity and accountability as enshrined in the 1992 Constitution of Ghana, even as the nation prepares for the December 7 Polls.

A statement issued by the party and signed by NDC General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia invited all teeming NDC supporters, political parties including the ruling New Patriotic Party, CSOs and the general public to join in the march, which the party said is a befitting tribute to the memory of “Ghana’s foremost anti-corruption giant.”

The statement said other details of the march, including the time and converging point would be communicated to the general public in due course.
