The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has called off its 23rd anniversary to join the rest of Ghanaians mourn the over 200 lives lost to the twin disaster last week.

The NDC, a social democratic political party in Ghana, which was founded on June 10, 1992, will ,however, not organize any activity to mark the historic event.

But that day will mark the end of a 3-day national mourning with an open-air memorial service scheduled to be held near the disaster site of Kwame Nkrumah Circle.

The Deputy General Secretary of the party, Koku Anyidoho said the party will shift all its planned programmes to 2016.

“We are mourning with families affected in the flood, fire [disasters],” he said. “We cannot celebrate while the country is in a state of mourning.”

The flood-cum-fire disaster on Wednesday, June 3 has left many still reeling and yet to come to terms with the loss.
