The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has set a special taskforce to handle issues that have come up with the registration of and issuance of cards to its members especially in the Techiman South and Agona East constituencies.
The Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of the party in a statement said since the start of the National Outreach Programme where issues including the renewal of registration and the issuance of Party Cards to members were discussed, some constituencies have been confronted with challenges, particularly regarding the registration and issuance of cards to Party members.
The FEC has discussed these challenges at several of its meetings including engaging regions and constituencies where the resolution of these challenges have proven intractable, the statement signed by General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia, said.
“The Agona East and Tèchiman South are (two of Such constituencies.) In view of the fact that the National Executive Committee (NEC), through FEC has approved a national time table for the execution of various programmes for the year, and the fact that time is of the greatest essence, FEC has decided to form Special Task Forces to take over the registration and issuance of party cards in the Agona East and Techiman South Constituencies.
“The Techiman South Task Force will be led by Comrade Prof. Joshua Alabi, while that of the Agona East will be led by Comrade Ako Gunn.
“The mandate of the Task Forces is to take over the registration and issuance of cards in the said constituencies and handle same till the end of the exercise.
“Constituency executives are free to accompany the Task Forces in their rounds, if they so wish. However, they are not to interfere in the work of the Task Forces. All Regional and Constituency executives are entreated to co-operate with the Teams for a successful execution of the exercise. Please treat this letter with the greatest urgency that it requires.”
