  • (1888PressRelease) December 30, 2010 - London, United Kingdom - The 31st December Revolution occupies a prominent place in the history of the struggle for probity and accountability as regards how governance is carried out in our country. The revolution has helped plant the seeds of the growing economic and political stability we currently enjoy as a country-the longest period of democratic stability in Ghana's history.

    We carry with us factual memories of the rapid turnaround of Ghana's economic growth rate from negative 7.1 per cent in1983 to positive economic growth within a transformational short time period of 18 months, an achievement which dramatically changed the economic and political landscape, thereby paving the way for increased decentralization and democratization at district levels and subsequent re-introduction of participatory multi-party democracy in 1992.

    During the days of the revolution, Ghanaians drew inspiration from the enormous sacrifices made by all cadres led by His Excellency Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings in restoring dignity to public service. Members of the NDC UK & Ireland Chapter also acknowledge the exemplary role the revolution played in advancing the spirit of communal hands-on approach to nation building when leaders of the revolution led nation building by example: joining in communal cleaning exercises, rail line repairs, electricity extension to remote villages, etc.

    We look forward to joining hands with all those who believe in the spirit of stable nation building in an atmosphere of peace and unity as we together respond to the challenges of building a better Ghana. We particularly look forward to working with the cadres of the revolution to further promote and protect the better Ghana agenda and the constitution of the Republic of Ghana.

    The NDC UK & Ireland Chapter also looks up to the cadres to support President John Evans Atta Mills' government as he works to alleviate poverty through investing in the hardworking people of Ghana, jobs and the economy.

    We owe it to the good people of Ghana to better coordinate our efforts and collaborate amongst ourselves so that the government's better Ghana initiatives can bring immediate and visible results.

    Together, as part of one political family, we must ensure that we work towards the good of President Atta Mills' government and ultimately, towards the good of all Ghanaians.

    Secretary, NDC UK and Ireland Chapter
