Politics of Monday, 10 March 2014
Aspiring General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kwabena Agyei Agyepong says he does not need to be vociferous to hold a position in the party.
According to him, politics is not for the violent but rather the sensible and calm gentlemen who have knowledge and the ability to reason and make changes for a better country.
Kwabena Agyepong made the comment on Badwam on Adom TV, while reacting to claims that he is too dull and gentle for the general secretary position.
He noted that NPP took power from the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) in 2000 with no force but rather through an election which was preceded by a calm campaign and non-violent action.
The former presidential spokesperson in the erstwhile John Kufuor administration emphasized on his abilities and capabilities of which he seeks to be elected as the general secretary of the NPP.
“I am not changing my style today nor tomorrow to suit anybody. This is me and so be it,” he stressed.
Kwabena Agyepong said as a confident person with courage, he is prepared to sacrifice and work selflessly for the party.
He appealed to delegates to vote massively for him on April 12 in Tamale to work assiduously for a resounding victory in the 2016 general elections.
