NPP supporters urged to work towards 2016

Eastern Regional First Vice Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Alhaji Omar Bodinga has called on party supporters to put the Supreme Court verdict behind them and work towards forthcoming 2016 elections.

Alhaji Bodinga made the call in an interview with the Ghana News Agency in Koforidua on Friday.

He said it was unfortunate that the verdict went the other way: “No doubt, there was disappointment and grief at the regional secretariat of the party when the verdict was read by Justice William Atuguba.

He, however, urged NPP supporters to put all what has happened behind in order to be able to reorganize, restructure, and recapture power come 2016.

Alhaji Bodinga, however, appealed to NPP supporters not to do anything untoward to tarnish the party’s image. He also cautioned the youth to desist from demonstrations but rather to unite and desist from making statements that would create division among the rank and file of the party.

It would be recalled that Ghana's Supreme Court on Thursday, August 29, ruled that President John Dramani Mahama was validly elected, and in a majority decision dismissed the petitioners’ case.

The petitioners included Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, 2012 Presidential candidate of the NPP, his running mate, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and Mr Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey, NPP National Chairman. © 2013 Grammarly, Inc. Loading...
