The Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Emmanuel Nii Ashie Moore, has paid GHS50,000 to offset part of the accumulated rent of the party's regional office.

The total rent is $38,000.

The need to pay the rent has become necessary after the owners of the property, which is located in the South Labadi Estate area in the Accra metropolis, mounted pressure on the newly elected NDC leadership in the region to have it settled.

Until the new leadership came to office, the rent was kept under wraps although there have been contributions by well-meaning members of the party towards its payment.

The Speaker of Parliament, Mr Alban Baghin, supported the region with GHS100,000 when the issue was brought to his attention.

Nii Ashie Moore has, therefore, appealed to other party members, especially those in the diaspora who hail from the Greater Accra Region, to also come and support in paying the rest of the rent of the regional office.

The NDC Regional Chairman has further promised to build an ultra-modern office to end the rent issue.
