The Cadres Front , an umbrella body of all cadre groupings under the Provisional National Defence Council(PNDC), and an affiliation to the ruling National Democratic Congress(NDC), have established an interim executive of the United Cadres Front, to man affairs of the cadres until next Congress to elect a substantive executive for the Front.
The 12-member interim executive is co-chaired by Mr Shine Gaveh and Mr Kofi Aikins. Other executives include Mr Charles Afare, Mr Tom Brown, Ms Mercy Akromah, Ms Rejoice Ahiable, and Mr Lawson Godro,.
The rest are Mr Efanam Nyarku, Mr Osei Piesie-Anto, Mr Edward Mba, Mr Sammy Donkoh and Mr Camillus Sakzeesi.
Mr Efanam Nyarku, spokesperson of the Front, addressing a press conference after the unification meeting in Koforidua, said a new constitution for the Front had been drafted and will soon make the necessary consultations on it to be adopted at their next Congress.
He told the regional, district , zonal and unit branches of the cadres front, to take note of the new development in the Front and act accordingly.
He expressed appreciation to some senior cadres who he said put in much efforts to ensure the unification of the cadre front.
The Eastern Regional Minister, Mr Antwi-Boasiako Sekyere noted that just after the 2012 general elections, some developments at the cadre front led to the split of the cadres into the East Legon and the Kuku Hill groupings.
He said several attempts that were made by some senior cadres to unite the cadre front, proved futile.
However, he acknowledged that it was only at the unification meeting that led to parties and the various groups agreed for a common front and an interim executive ahead of the next congress for the election of a substantive executive, and the adaptation of a new Constitution for the United Cadres Front.
