Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo, Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is to address party supporters in the Asante-Bekwai Constituency on Tuesday November 13th.
The event will enable the NPP flag bearer to make a statement to supporters in the constituency that the feud in the party was now over.
The disputed 2008 parliamentary primary election threw the party office in the constituency into a turmoil, something that prevented Nana Akufo-Addo from campaigning in the area, though a traditional stronghold of the NPP.
The seat was eventually won by an independent candidate, Mr Joe Osei-Wusu, who is now contesting the seat again but on the ticket of the NPP in the December polls.
A press release signed by the Constituency Chairman, Mr. Patrick Adu-Gyamfi, said there was now calm in the party and that all cracks had been mended.
The presence of the flag-bearer, it noted could only invigorate the loyal supporters and give them the motivation and appetite to work hard and make the necessary sacrifices to substantially increase the party’s share of votes on December 7.
