NPP: New Executives Favor Stephen Ntim ----- Chairman

A Majority of the NPP executive members just elected as new patriotic Party (NPP) executives want Stephen Ntim as their next chairman. They are saying they know him and respect him for what he has done for them ever since he lost the elections at the University of Ghana. Ntim showed concern on activities on the ground for the Party to achieve its ultimate goals even while he was not the chairman.

These polling Station executives believe that the next election for 2012 will not be an essay task. As a result of that the party needs someone like Stephen Ntim who will strengthen the organizational structures of the party with both action leadership abilities, and decentralization methods; and to build better structures to help the party efforts to win votes from the majority of Ghanaians. Ntim will immediately transform the NPP from the corruptible image that was established by the previous executives, the Chairman Peter Mac Manu and his criminal counterpart the National organizer Lord Commey, who was nobody but now has become affluent due to his dubious practices for the NPP parliamentary nomination elections. This aforementioned bribery scheme nearly destroyed the party that was established by many of us whose ancestors shed their precious blood to build.

The newly elected executive members say that they will not allow the character assassination, which has been orchestrated by Dan Kwaku Botwe and his Akufo Addo to destroy Stephan Ntim. The money which Akufo Addo the 70 year- old man used to bribe people to oust them, from their previous positions in order for Akufo Addo and Dan Botwe to have their own members; who will favor them for the presidential delegates nomination has backfire on them. These new executives have determined to send a clear message this time to Akufo Addo and his cronies; this is the reason they voted against Nyaho Tamaklo for the greater Accra Chairmanship. They are saying they are tired of this 70- years- old man Akufo Addo who has had his chance already but failed. They cannot follow the old political system any longer and Dan KwaKu Botwe’s tribal politics within the NPP are sickening to many of them. Gabby otchere Darko one of the leading member of the Akyem Kyebi Mafia group within the NPP should keep his mouth shut on Dr Yaw Annor the Newly elected NPP chairman or else.

The new executive members believe Ntim’s socialization with Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng Kalamate network on the ground will not only lay effective structures to enable the NPP to win the 2012 general elections. They can use the network to assemble the foot soldiers of the NPP to institute door-to-door campaign and also be vigilant to monitor NDCs violent activities across the country. As a result of their great intentions, a majority of NPP members are now moving towards Stephen Ntim. Kenned Agyepong the Assin north legislature have thrown his support behind Stephen Ntim. According to a credible source Agyepong believes the party cannot waste their time on loser candidates for the 2012 general elections. I urge all NPP delegates across the country to support winning teams, which are Stephen Ntim as the NPP chairman and Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng as the next NPP presidential candidate. If the NPP wanted to win the Presidency in the 2012 then they should elect Alan Kyeremanteng and Ntim. They are the only candidates that will reduce NDC numbers in Ashanti and Brogn Ahafo region in the 2012 general election. According to the some senior NDC members the only candidate they are afraid of in Ghana is Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanteng. With all the logistics NDC will have at their possession they still believe Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng is unbeatable for the 2012 general election. This is fact. No joke!!
