United Cadre Front has indicated that the cardinal principles of the

31st Revolution, which were probity and accountability, social

justice and participatory democracy were as valid presently as they

were at the beginning of the revolution.

    This was contained in a communiqué issued in Koforidua and

signed jointly by Mr Richard K. Ansong and Mr Jonathan

Kwao-Sabah, Regional Chairman and Organizer respectively and

copied to the GNA.

    “We remain committed to these principles and ideals and call on

all Ghanaians to continually cherish them since it is only when

people can properly account for their stewardship irrespective of

where they find themselves that the nation can thrive and find its

due place among the developed nations”.

     It called for judicious use of resources, hard work and respect

for each other and urged all to guard against laziness and all forms

of nepotism.

    The communiqué called for development of culture of fairness

and good language for one another since they constitute fine

ingredients for peace and stability, especially as the country

prepares for the 2012 general elections.

    “We need to be mindful of the psychological effect of statements

    It urged that monies owned to all workers of the defunct

National Mobilization Programme whose appointments were

terminated by the Kufour administration be paid without further


   The communiqué noted that many of those workers might have

died already, while some had fallen sick and bedridden and others

turned into paupers since then.

    It noted that a lot of acrimonies had arisen as a result of the

fall- out from the recent parliamentary primaries in some

constituencies, which was threatening the peace, unity and

cohesion that the party required for the general elections this year.

    “It is therefore absolutely necessary for the National Democratic

Congress (NDC) party to close its ranks and to work towards

ensuring unity within the party”.

    The communiqué said it was opposed to the many wrangling and

petty squabbles that existed within the party and called for a

permanent internal mechanism to deal with all issues.        

     “Such mechanisms must be at all levels of the party right from

the National Secretariat to the branch level. It is equally important

to note that party affairs are even conducted in such a way that

such bickering does not occur at all or they are minimized to floor level”.
