Nothing came out of NDC Congress – Kwesi Pratt

By on


The Managing Editor of the ‘Insight’ newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jr has called for a change in how political parties in the country organize their National Delegates Congress.

The renowned journalist was speaking to the just ended National Delegates Congress of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).

According to him, nothing extraordinary came out of the just-ended congress except the controversies surrounding the solidarity message of General Secretary of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Ivor Greenstreet.

“How can a ruling party go to congress and after the only thing you hear is Greenstreet, Samuel George and so on,” he bemoaned.

Contributing to a panel discussion on Tuesday’s edition of ‘Kokrokoo’, Kwesi Pratt said: “in other places, congresses are to find solutions to problems facing the country and the way forward… how to apply their philosophy and then at the end of the congress, they find a resolution to the congress – but in Ghana that is not the case; either they are sharing iron rods, cloths, insults and so on. There was nothing from the congress; what message are the delegates taking back to their regions? Nothing…”

Kwesi Pratt however hoped “that Ghana will get to a point when political parties will go to congress and will devote four to five hours to discuss national issues and there will be a one or two pages resolutions after the congress,” he added.
