The National Treasurer of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Akane Adams, has assured the rank and file of the party of the readiness of the recently constituted fundraising committee to deliver.
“We have enormous confidence in the calibre of persons proposed by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party to solicit/raise funds for the party’s upcoming national delegates’ conference/congress,” Mr Adams, who is also the Chairman of the Finance Committee, said in a statement on Wednesday.
Over the weekend, the opposition party inaugurated a seven-member committee headed by multiple-time flagbearer Dr Edward Nasigre Mahama to help reckon resources and funds for a congress to be successfully held.
“Indeed, the rank and file of the party is solidly behind all the proposed members of the committee,” the statement said, “and we shall give them the necessary support and assistance they may require inter alia.”
He encouraged members of the committee to be “diligent” and “cooperative” with one another in the discharge of their duties.
The party has given the Finance Committee oversight responsibility over all internal financial activities.
This is per Article 58(C) of the party’s constitution.
“The Finance Committee shall therefore look forward in expectation for the details of the final report by the congress fundraising committee before its onward submission to the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Party.”
