The National Democratic Party (NDA) is a registered and recognized political party in Sierra Leone that was founded in 1994.The party was founded in Kabala, Koinadugu District in the Northern Province of Sierra Leone.
The party’s name came from the alliance of the NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC MOVEMENT and the DEMOCRATIC PEOPLES PARTY. The political symbol of the NDA is a standing black elephant in a shield against a white background.
The “SHIELD” symbolizes NDA’s determination to protect and defend the territorial integrity of Sierra Leone. The WHITE BACKGROUND denotes Peace and Freedom. The BLACK ELEPHANT represents self-sufficiency and self- reliance of our democratic nation.
Our party colors are: BLACK and GREEN on a WHITE BACKGROUND. BLACK denotes: beauty, resilience, friendship, love and unity. GREEN denotes: Agriculture and prosperity. WHITE denotes: Peace, liberty and Freedom.
Our party continues to uphold its national motto: RESPECT FOR ALL - a value and character we believe is the answer to our complex national challenges. The party ideology is “nation first” which we strongly believe also is the guiding principle to a better and prosperous Sierra Leone.
The NDA party’s ideology is deeply rooted in the concept of “NATION FIRST” with its shared vision of “ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL” that are in sync with the common aspirations of the people of Sierra Leone.
The “nation first” ideology with our principle motto of “Respect for All” is a value driven social thinking that will promote political tolerance, good governance, transparency and accountability including sustainable economic growth for Sierra Leoneans.
The party ideology of NATION FIRST will help to create constructive national cohesion, reduced ethnic marginalization or geographic affiliations and rally the nation on a common commitment to improving the welfare and prosperity of every Sierra Leonean.
This value system of showing allegiance to the nation fosters a culture of patriotism and discourages any form of corruption. It builds a foundation of honesty and integrity that are essential to national development both short term and long terms for Sierra Leone.
