The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, will deliver the keynote address at the 39th anniversary of the 31st December Revolution coming off in Accra on Thursday.
This year’s celebration which will take place at the Osekan Park on the Atta Mills High Street is being organised in honour of late Jerry John Rawlings.

The organizing committee is inviting cadres, sympathizers of the revolution and members of the public to the commemoration which will commence at 8.30 am on Thursday.
The 31st December 1981 revolution ushered in a period of economic and political transformation that culminated in the re-establishment of lasting constitutional rule in 1992.
The revolution also gave birth to the National Democratic Congress which won elections in 1992 and 1996 under the leadership of Rawlings.
