For the first time in the history of the party, the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is celebrating its anniversary without its Founder the late former President Jerry John Rawlings.

The party is marking its 29th anniversary today, Thursday June 10, 2020.

National Chairman of the NDC, Mr Samuel Ofosu Ampofo told Dzifa Bampoh on the First Take on 3FM Thursday June 10 that the spirit of Mr Rawlings will continue to lead the party.

Mr Rawlings died on Thursday November 12 2020. He was 73 years.

He died at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra after suffering a short illness.

Mr Ofosu Ampofo said “We have had a very sober and deep reflection over his demise because he has been the pillar, the tower of strength, an inspiration behind the party.

“Today, we observed a minute silence  to honour him, we eulogized him, we remembered him for the  leadership that he provided  for the party and for establishing  the NDC party which has  come to stay and it has become a very dominant force in the politics of this country.”


He added “So, as we celebrate this 29th anniversary for the first time without the Founder of the party, whiles we rejoice that the good Lord has brought us this far on the other side, we are very sad that for the first time we are celebrating this without our charismatic founder.



“We believe that President Rawlings spirit will continue to rally behind this party, it will continue to guide us in all that we are doing and we are praying that the good Lord will grant him a resting place and allow his legacy to blossom and grow from strength to strength.”


He further touted the achievements of the NDC in the development of Ghana.

He said the party has unmatched records in most sectors of the economy especially in the education sector.
