Zawren Ndoum Council of Elders

Zawren Ndoum movement is a registered non-governmental organization constituted in 2016 by independent-minded individuals from Zongo communities in Ghana who have been ardent followers of Dr. Papa Kwesi Ndoum for many years.

Zawren Nduom, which literary means “the Hall of Nduom”, in Hausa dialect was intended to promote the well-being of members of the various communities in terms of education and job creation opportunities, particularly for the youth, to enhance productivity.

According to the leaders of the group, Dr Nduom’s ideas are synonymous with some of the teachings of the Holy Prophet Muhammed, and are convinced he is the only resourceful person who can take the Zongos and Ghana to the level that majority of them are yearning for.

During 2016 Electioneering campaign, the group campaigned vigorously for Dr. Ndoum, and parliamentary candidates of the Party in Ofoase Ayiribi, KEEA, South Dayi and Kwesimintim.

Zawren Ndoum will continue to mobilise support from the zongos for Dr. Ndoum and help PPP capture power in 2020.

PPP beat CPP 4 – 3 on penalties in the final match after a goalless draw to win the trophy.

Speaking after the presentation of the trophy, captain of PPP, Patrick Armah, thanked God Almighty for helping them win the trophy and congratulated his team mates and the coach for their commitment and diligence.

Nii Allotey Brew Hammond
Leadership of NPP and NDC must act in the interest of the Nation according to the Chairman of the party, Nii Allotey Brew Hammond. His comment comes in the wake of the unfortunate comments made by the Chairmen of the two dominant parties concerning 2016 post-election violent attacks going on in the country.

While the Acting National Chairman of the NPP is reported, rather sadly, to have defended and backed the indecent act of his party supporters as “protecting state properties”, the National Chairman of the NDC in a press conference absolved the NDC counter attacks, and further advanced the argument that NDC lawbreakers should not be blamed for reprisal attacks emanating from “the beastly conduct of the Akufo-Addo invincible forces”. We find the intemperate language of these two political leaders unacceptable and unbefitting for National cohesion. Their comments are a threat to National Security and National Development.

However, Nii Allotey believes the statements are irresponsible and pose a threat development of competence and character among today’s youth, and must therefore, be condemned. “These worrisome trends – socially unconstructive behavior – if encouraged, can only reflect the perpetrators assessment of their future economic prospects as uncertain and lead to a belief that Ghana is out of control. This attitude can pose a threat to the development of competence and character among today’s youth who may find crime as an alternate source of income that promises greater short-term financial gains than employment.”

He asked them to put the interest first, and assured Ghanaians that the Progressive People’s Party will do everything within its powers to help stop this nastiness.

The highest decision making body of the Party (National Committee) held a retreat on Friday, 3rd February, 2017 to review the performance of the party in the 2016 Presidential and Parliamentary elections, and to strategize for election 2020.


DR. Papa Kwesi Ndoum

Government’s decision to execute the National Identification Project has been lauded by Dr. Ndoum. He has advocated for National Identification System for over a decade, and believes it will go a long way to enable us have a credible voter register, and block the loopholes in our tax system.

He was however quick to add that the project must be carried out without partisan colourisation. “This must be seen as a matter of national interest without partisan colouration. My party, the PPP believes in this project.”
