He appealed to the returnees to go all out explain policies and programmes of the NDC government to the people for the party to consolidate power.Mr. Adams, however advised them never to commit the mistakes of the past but stand firm and work hard to win the confidence of members of the party.Mr. Modestus Ahiable, Regional Chairman of the party urged its members to remain dedicated and focused because "honesty in words and action are the attributes of true love and dedication".He appealed for calm as "there are a lot of opportunities for all in President John Atta Mills' better Ghana".Colonel Cyril Necku (rtd), Deputy Volta Regional Minister said the come-back journey of the deserters was a great honour to the NDC. "With your return, the enemies of the party are beginning to panick," he observedMr. Nuku-Dei who spoke of behalf of the returnees said their departure could simply be described as "an observation mission" and assured them of their commitment to the goals of the NDC. He appealed to all to put aside memories of bitterness and work hard for the sustenance of the party.
