Stakeholders in Ghana are working hard to revive the National Executive Committee of the All Nigerian Communities (ANC), the umbrella body of Nigerians in that country, to become vibrant.
Mr Charles Micheleti, the chairman, board of trustees (BOT) of the ANC, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on the telephone from Accra, Ghana on Monday that efforts were on to put the leadership on track.
He said the leadership of the body in the 10 regions of Ghana are vibrant and doing well.
“ In the regions, the ANC leadership are organised and doing well. Members pay their dues, carry out visitations to hospitals, homes and assist fellow citizens.
“ They are upholding the nation`s image and we have confidence in them,” he said.
Micheletti, also, the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ghana chapter, said that leadership crisis engulfed the national body of the group, which led to its dissolution by a former High Commissioner.
“ A task force was set up to write a new constitution and reorganise the national leadership. Funding has been their major challenges because members in Accra have refused to pay dues to assist them to do their work.
“ The board of trustees is also working hard to revive the national leadership of the ANC,” he said.
Micheletti said that prominent and educated Nigerians in Ghana have been assisting to ensure that the national executive committee was revived.
“ There are prominent and educated Nigerians doing well in Ghana. They have been supportive of the cause of the ANC and playing their part to ensure that its national body is back again.
“ For now, the task force is working to revive the body, but funding is their major challenge,” the BOT chairman said. (NAN)
