NPP CONGRATULATES NEWLY-ELECTED REGIONAL OFFICIALS
On Saturday, 25th January 2014, the New Patriotic Party elected a new crop of executives to steer the affairs of the party at the regional level. The leadership of the party congratulates members for yesterday’s regional elections and the spirit of fairness that characterised the process.
The peaceful manner with which some 5,000 delegates elected some 100 executives across the ten regions of the country is a clear indication that the NPP is a united force and is ready to wrestle power from the NDC in our quest to bring back hope to the Ghanaian suffering from the worsening conditions of living imposed on them by the John Mahama led NDC government.
To all newly elected officials, we urge you to reach out to bring on board every member and supporter of the party in our efforts towards a strong and effective campaign for a clear and resounding victory in 2016.
For those who lost, we wish you better luck next time and, more importantly, we urge you to stay fully engaged in our efforts to reorganise the party for the general elections of 2016.
We wish to reassure Ghanaians that the NPP remains focused and united behind our necessary and on-going reorganization process, as we prepare towards the 2016 general elections.
No volumes of poisonous propaganda can hide the truth that the NPP is a party in good shape, preparing to be in a better shape.
