A General Secretary aspirant of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, has lauded the immense contribution of the people of Tolon in the political space of Ghana, especially, in the formation of the Danquah-Busia-Dombo Tradition.
Speaking at the Palace of the Tolon Naa, Major Rtd. Sulemana, Kwabena acknowledged the struggle and loyalty of the people of Dagbon and how they have stood firm by the NPP at all times. He prayed the wise regent that when given the mandate, he will put up a special program that will honour the contributions of the unsung patriots of the tradition.
An elated regent of the land, who welcomed Kwabena Agyepong, admonished the team to be mindful of the task ahead, more especially with the recent revelations during the election petition. He prayed that the delegates will be touched by God to vote massively for Kwabena come March 1st 2014. He called for Unity of purpose and praised Kwabena Agyepong for his immense dedication to the tradition, acknowledging the relationship that has existed between the two.
The Kwabena 4 GS team later met with party executives at the Tolon, Kumbungu, Savalugu and Nanton constituency, were he urged them to be united for victory as, “The very things that unite us as a party far outweighs the issues that divide us” he stressed. He promised to drive a strong grassroot organization, capable of detecting any electoral fraud.
Kwabena Agyepong used the occasion to appeal to the National Executive Committee of the NPP to reconsider its directive to hold the upcoming national executive elections slated for the 1st of March, simultaneously at regional polling stations across the country. He argued that the conference was an opportunity for party faithful to fraternize and build a strong sense of belonging.
