A former communications officer of the NPP in the Akwatia constituency, Nana Obeng-Danquah, has called on the newly elected national officers of the party to exercise fairness and firmness whenever they need to apply the party’s rules and regulations.
He stressed that any application of the rules and regulations of the NPP should be done in the best interest of the party.
He said when fairness, transparency and firmness are strictly adhered to, they would engender the required unity among party members to enable it ‘break the 8’.
“I am urging the new officers to avoid taking bad or unpopular decisions which have the propensity to affect the electoral fortunes of the party in the 2024 polls,” Obeng-Danquah appealed in a statement.
He also admonished the newly elected executive to work to ensure even greater unity and inclusivity in the party “as we march forward to ‘break the 8’ in 2024”.
“I congratulate the new national officers for their deserving victory, and urge them to work together as a team in the interest of the party irrespective of their differences during the just ended campaign period,” he said.
Obeng-Danquah, who is affectionately called Daakye, said the NPP remains a greatest party and best choice for Ghanaians, saying “with unity of purpose, the party can break the eight years’ cycle of elections in the Fourth republic”.
“Nana Akufo-Addo broke the jinx of the ‘John’ belief factor as far as Ghana’s presidency was concerned,” he stated.
He entreated the losers in the elections to respect the decision of the delegates, “and continue to wholeheartedly work for the party’s interest”.
“Do not be bitter, but rather continue to work for the party. I commend the NPP delegates for voting to elect a solid team to lead the party into 2024 general elections. NPP delegates have always had it right in choosing national officers, and this time too they delivered as expected,” Daakye added.
