NDC to revitalise CEDECOM

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) will revitalise Central Regional Development Company to additionally take on agriculture
and fisheries as part of its operational activities.
     Mr John Dramani Mahama,  NDC Vice Presidential Candidate told a bubbling rally at Komenda in the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Ebrem in the Central Region that CEDECOM should not engage in tourism activities alone.
     He said the NDC would ensure that CEDECOM was involved in  agricultural and fisheries development in the area to guarantee a permanent job for the people and to better their livelihood.
     The NDC would also reintroduce premix fuel distribution by the fishermen themselves to avoid diversion and corruption that existed in the trade while it would also provide fishing gears to fishermen at subsided prices.
     It would also build "blast freezers" for the storage of fish, especially during the bumper harvest while it would also abolish per trawling in Ghanaian territorial waters to ensure that local fishermen also get their catch.
     Mr Mahama urged the people to vote for the NDC during the December 7 election and if they do that they would be electing Professor John Evans Atta Mills as president who has impeccable leadership qualities.
     He said the attempt by the opponent of the NDC to run it down would fail because what the NDC has achieved during its eight years in office was impressive and that they would build on it for a better Ghana.
     Mr.  Mahama thanked the people for giving him such rousing welcome "which is an indication that if the turn out would be converted into votes, then victory of the NDC is assured."
