The Volta Regional Secretariat of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has reacted to the resignation of Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, MP for North Tongu, from the Appointments Committee of the 8th Parliament of the Fourth Republic.

In a press statement signed by the Volta Regional Secretary of the NDC, Hon. James Gunu, the Secretariat salutes the North Tongu lawmaker for his landmark resignation and wish other principled MPs on the Minority side will cause the necessary change in direction from within so that the fading hope of a hang parliament will be restored.

According to Mr. Gunu, the decision by Hon. Okudzeto Ablakwa to resign has resonated with the party’s grassroots and the overwhelming majority of NDC members in the region.

He went ahead to state that “The NDC in the Volta Region is not the least surprised because we have always known Hon. Okudzeto Ablakwa for his principles and values.”

“We wish to reiterate our full support for the noble action of the North Tongu legislator. Hon. Okudzeto Ablakwa is one of the finest MPs our region has ever produced and we were not surprised when he was adjudged the best Minority MP for 2019.

We want to use this opportunity to call for calm among the rank and file of the party. Our great party shall emerge from the current challenges stronger and more formidable.

May the principles of probity, accountability and integrity upon which the NDC was founded by H.E. Jerry John Rawlings continue to inspire more of these inspiring principled moments in our history,” the press statement holds.
