During the event at the party headquarters, General Secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia touted the role of the party in the making of the 1992 constitution and how the party will forge ahead without founder Jerry John Rawlings.
He described the NDC as the most successful party since the country gained independence.
“NDC arguably is a political party that has a track record that will be difficult to beat by another party in this country. As it stands now it remains the most successful party in Ghana since our independence so we have every reason to be proud of our party,” he said.
Also in attendance was the party’s running mate for the 2020 elections Professor Naana Jane Opoku Agyeman, National Chairman Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, and the party’s leadership in Parliament.
