NPP Germany to hold mini-congress in Hanover

Members, Supporters and sympathisers of the New Patriotic Party in Germany would gather in the central German city of Hanover for their Annual Mini-Congress on Saturday April 16 2016

The one-day congress is under the theme “Working towards Change in Ghana”
Mr Kwaku Anane-Gyinde, National Organiser of NPP-Germany who announced this in an interview with Ghana Waves Radio pointed out that this being an election year, it is important for the leadership to meet members and explain party’s preparation and readiness for the November Polls.

Mr Anane-Gyinde disclosed that as part of its preparation towards the election, NPP Germany would hold a training programme for Polling Station Agents/Volunteers who will be travelling to Ghana assist in the elections.
According to him, the training programme which precedes the congress will start at 10 am and end at 12.30 pm to allow the Mini-Congress to begin at 13.00 pm.

The National Organiser disclosed that so far 43 Volunteers have submitted their names for the training and expressed the optimism that the number is likely to increase before the scheduled date. He therefore, urged all NPP members and supporters interested in being part of the training programme to submit their names through their local chapter chairpersons.

He explained that the enthusiasm and interest in the programme underscores the fact that Ghanaians in diaspora like their compatriots at home, are determined to effect a change in Ghana saying “mismanagement, incompetence and poor leadership affect us all.”

The out-spoken National Organiser noted that as a result of poor leadership and bad governance, Ghanaians in Germany and across Europe cannot travel to their country of birth because our missions (embassies) are not able to issue Ghanaian passports for reasons best known to them

He said the inability of the Mahama-led government to print enough passport booklets coupled with the high level of corruption, incompetence and ineptitude are emblematic of a failed government with failed policies. He declared “no serious government will sit and look unconcerned while its citizens are denied the right to travel home simply because it cannot find the money to print passport booklets”

Mr Anane-Gyinde stressed that the only way Ghanaians can avoid this national ridicule and embarrassment is to show President Mahama and the NDC the exit in November and replace them with a more competent team that can prudently manage the economy of Ghana.
