A Deputy Minister of Finance and Member of Parliament for Atiwa East, Abena Osei-Asare, has indicated that the primary focus of the members of the New Patriotic Party in her constituency is to work hard to make the party’s flagbearer, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the next President of Ghana.
She emphasized that while it is a daunting challenge, assisting the NPP in breaking the eight-year governance cycle will remain the primary goal of the party in the area throughout the year.
Speaking to the media after emerging victorious in the party’s parliamentary primaries over the weekend, Ms. Osei-Asare indicated that winning the December 7 general elections demands hard work and dedication.
She noted that the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo government has performed well in changing the country it inherited in 2017.
However, she stated that the government’s successes would not be sufficient to secure another term in office, calling on all party members to contribute actively to the task ahead.
It is possible
Despite various agencies predicting defeat for the NPP in the 2024 presidential elections, Ms. Osei-Asare expressed confidence that the predictions would not define the future of the party, as it is “possible” to win the election.
She asserted that the NPP has in Dr. Bawumia a perfect candidate who can secure victory for the party and lead Ghana in the right direction.
Highlighting the current challenges faced by Ghana post-Covid-19 and amidst ongoing global crises, the Deputy Finance Minister emphasized that Dr. Bawumia has proven to have solutions.
The Atiwa East MP noted that the vision of the Vice-President would significantly benefit Ghanaians, making it a duty for all NPP members to work towards realizing this vision.
Ms. Osei-Asare stated that Ghanaians would not forgive the NPP if they allowed power to slip through their hands to the NDC.
She stressed that denying Ghana the vision of Dr. Bawumia would not bode well for the country, emphasizing the need for all party members to get to work and ensure victory for the Vice-President.
She pledged to collaborate with her team in Atiwa East to increase the presidential votes of the NPP come December 7.
