He has urged aspirants to stick to issues based campaign that will ultimately inure to the NPP's bid to 'Break The Eight' - retain political power beyond eight years.

According to a Daily Guide newspaper report, Protozoa made the call when he donated supplies to a cross-section of fasting Muslims in the Suhum Municipality of the Eastern Region.

The report stated in parts that Protozoa urged the party delegates to elect competent and committed people at the upcoming constituency elections who will have the party at heart and work hard to break the eight.

He further tasked the members to avoid voting for aspirants who will abdicate their positions after being elected, adding that the delegates must diligently elect executives based on their competence and not a faction they associate themselves with, the report added.

The NPP recently completed election of polling station officials - a process marred by some skirmishes in parts of the country.

The date for election of constituency-level executives is due to start soon and will be followed by regional, and national executives.
