She was addressing the inmates of the Gambaga Old People’s Home on Wednesday, December 28, 2022. The PNC organised a Christmas party for inmates as part of the Party’s efforts to show compassion and draw attention to the plight of the aged in the country.

The initiative was under the theme, “showing compassion and love to the vulnerable aged, a collective responsibility.

”The General Secretary, said it is unacceptable for a nation that prides itself of the rule of law to subject a section of its Population to such indignity.
