The New Patriotic Party (NPP) incumbent MP for Nhyiaeso, Kennedy Kankam has admonished the party not to forget aspirants who lost the primaries but campaigned for the party towards victory come December 7, 2020.

Speaking at the launch of the ‘Aspirants Unite for Victory’ 2020, he said the group consisting of a pirate who lost the primaries but has put resources together towards the victory come 2020, should not be forgotten.

According to him, the aspirants who lost are competent and capable to be deputy ministers, CEOS of state companies, Ambassadors among other appointments.

He said the defeated aspirants have put their resources together to campaign for the party to ensure that victory is attained.

He asserted that compared to previous years, the number of defeated aspirants who have decided to go independent has reduced drastically.

On his part, Sammi Awuku, the National Organizer of the party asked the party not to be complacent but approach this election as a party in opposition.

He admitted that it is difficult to go into an election as a sitting government than an opposition party hence the party will leave no stone unturned in protecting the gains made by the NPP over the past few years.
