Alhaji Alhassan Oppong, a member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at Nkoranza, has urged President Evans Atta Mills to remain firm in taking decisions that would promote national development.
At a special prayer session, organised for President Mills at Kranka in Nkoranza North District, Alhaji Oppong advised the President not to be worried about criticisms, especially from the opposition.
He said "Since uneasy lies the head that wears the crown, you should expect all sorts of comments from the people, more especially from the opposition".
Alhaji Oppong urged President Mills and the NDC leadership to promote grass roots participatory democracy by listening to the views and opinions of ordinary citizens.
The NDC member called on all Members of Parliament, irrespective of the parties they represented to work as a team towards national development.
He advised NDC youth to avoid practices that could drag the name of the party into disrepute.
Alhaji Oppong commended members of the party for voting massively for party in the last elections.
Chief Imam Mohammed Abdurahaman advised the youth to be law-abiding, respect authority and eschew social vices.
