General Secretary of the restriction National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketia has uncovered that the ‘Legends’ Fund’ set up to help supporters and followers who have experienced adversities, cripplings or different types of hardships over the span of their support of the gathering does not exist any longer.
As indicated by him, the Heroes Fund couldn’t be operational and continued in light of the fact that individuals from gathering neglected to contribute towards it.
The Heroes Fund propelled in 2011, was expected to provide food for the necessities of dependants of exploited people who have lost their lives while working in light of a legitimate concern for the NDC just as non-individuals from the gathering in comparative circumstances.
The Fund, enrolled as a non-legislative association, was to be administered by a seven-part leading group of trustees led by Ambassador Victor Gbeho. Mr Kamal Noshie, Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, Mr Kwesi Attah, Mr Yaw Boamah, Ms Doris Aidoo and Mr Simon Mawusor would likewise fill in as executives of the store.
These people were to plan strategies, raise assets from both nearby and global sources and see to its dispensing. The Board of Trustees was likewise expected to put incomes collected in beneficial endeavors.
The issue of the NDC’s Heroes Fund has gone to the fore after the shooting of six of its individuals after outfitted conceal men said to be agents of National Security raged the place of the NDC competitor at La-Bawaleshie amid last Thursday’s by-decision in Ayawaso West Wuogon body electorate.
The harmed are as of now accepting treatment with one of the unfortunate casualties prone to have his seriously harmed leg cut off at the 37 Military Hospital.”At a point the individuals from the leading body of trustees were baffled and surrendered their position in light of the fact that there was not any more any Heroes Fund to oversee. Despite everything I trust it is a critical undertaking we need to return to, I’m certain when this reconstituted National Executive is finished with our inside gathering decision we’ll return to the task. A portion of the general population who battled against the foundation of the store are today challenging for positions in the gathering and are currently requiring its re-foundation.
“On the off chance that we had upheld the Fund to work back then, it would have filled a decent need today. This should reveal to you that a few of us our sort of legislative issues is driven by premonition. When I moved for the foundation of the Heroes Fund eight years back we never foreseen that our individuals would be so extremely attacked in a by-decision at Ayawaso West Wuogon. The gathering has no protection for its individuals, no retirement subsidize as that is the reason we need such a committed reserve.”
