At the annual conference of the party’s Professionals Forum Annual Conference in Greater Accra on Thursday, April 29, 2021, former president, John Mahama, ignored claims that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) does not seek the contributions of intellectuals in the country.
Mr. Mahama insisted that, the NDC has a lot of learned and professionals within every sector of the economy.
“The perception has always been that mass parties do not have intellectuals and academic firepower. I mean just a fraction of the members of the Pro Forum in this auditorium and the self-introductions that you made clearly shows that pound for pound, we have on the side of the NDC, sufficient intellectual and academic power to take on any party in this world, and we have proved it over the years.”
Mr. Mahama at the conference revealed, NDC will station professionals to keep an eye on the 2024 elections.
“We must ensure that we have more professionals and more educated people coming into play in respect of policing and monitoring the elections at the grassroots level.”
”Collation of results is an important activity that the expertise that you people carry can help in terms of collating the party’s results in good times and also transmitting the result as most of you do in your professional work with information technology.”
