Accra, Nov. 20, GNA – The National Democratic Congress (NDC), will on Thursday, November 26, embark on a probity and accountability march, in honour of the memory and legacy of former President Jerry John Rawlings, the founder of the Party and Ghana’s Fourth Republic.
A statement signed by Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the General Secretary of the NDC, copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra on Friday, said the NDC was organizing the route march in conjunction with other political parties, civil society organizations (CSOs) and all progressive forces.

« The NDC kindly invites all its teeming supporters, political parties including the ruling New Patriotic Party, CSOs, and the general public to join in this march, which is a befitting tribute to the memory of Ghana’s foremost anti-corruption giant, » it said.
It noted that details about the time of the March converging point, among others, would be communicated to the general public in due course.
