NPP Regional Organizers endorse Rasheed Konlaabig as Deputy National Organizer

Rasheed Konlaabig Rasheed Konlaabig

All ten NPP Regional Organizers have thrown their support behind Rasheed Konlaabig as the most qualified person to assist the party’s National Organizer, Sammi Awuku as National Deputy Organizer.

The regional organizers who unanimously endorsed Rasheed say as a 2-term Regional Organiser of their party, Rasheed has done it all.

They indicate that in all he does, Rasheed exemplifies hard work, honesty, fairness, and thoughtfulness and they believe he will use those qualities to create a better balance between party and government activities towards election 2020.

The Regional Organizers, in a statement, advance three main reasons for their nomination of Mr. Konlaabig as their next Deputy National Organizer:

1. Rasheed has acquired a great deal of experience dealing with polling stations, electoral areas and constituencies in the Brong Ahafo region and the northern sector of Ghana when he served as Organiser for our party. In this position, Rasheed gained respect from the public as well as the party people and even the then ruling government officials. In recognition of this and many other factors, he contested the regional organiser position unopposed.

2. Rasheed demonstrates strong ethics and a sense of safety for all of us. With such standards, he conveys a commitment to fairness, instilling confidence that both he and all nine of us will honour the winning expectations ahead of election 2020 and beyond.

3. When confronted with organisational crisis, Rasheed is able to mobilise people and money to support the primary goal and get back to business as quickly as possible. We experienced this quality over and over especially during the 2016 election. His significant contribution in mobilising action and support in this election was phenomenal, and we cannot emphasise this enough. Taken together, these attributes make him extremely reliable.
