The Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) will host a grand Christmas party for nearly 500 members in Ganta, Nimba County, on Monday, December 26.
In a Daily Observer exclusive interview, the County Chairman, Nelson Korquoi, said the decision is geared towards bringing the citizens together in one accord and to be abreast of the party’s activities.
Chairman Korquoi outlined several activities, including parading on the principal streets of Ganta, an indoor program, kids’ dancing time, kickball and football matches, to be followed by the awarding of prizes.
He said at the dinner table, there will be open discussions “where everybody will be able to dialogue together and get over their differences.”
Christmas celebration in Ganta has usually been done on the streets, owing to limited recreational centers for kids, a situation which the CDC says it wants to improve by creating a space where kids and ordinary people can go for relaxation.
“We will be gathering over 500 persons from across Nimba; three persons will represent each of the 38 communities in Ganta, while all the coordinators of the CDC and its coalition partners will be present,” he said.
“The chiefs and elders, women and youth groups will be represented at the occasion.”
