NPP to elect national executives from June 15 to 17

The governing New Patriotic Party [NPP], has announced that it will hold its National Delegates Congress in Koforidua in the Eastern Region from June, 15 to 17 2018.

The Congress will elect national officers who will run the affairs of the party for the next four years.

Addressing a news conference in Accra, acting General Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu, said a Committee has been set up to oversee a successful Congress.

The Congress is being held pursuant to Article 10(2) & (3) of the NPP constitution which mandates that the National Annual Delegates shall meet at least four weeks after the last Regional Annual Delegates Conference.

Ahead of the NPP Regional Annual Delegates Conferences nationwide, the NPP has been able to successfully hold Constituency Annual Delegates Conferences in 271 constituencies out of the 275 constituencies in the country, constituting 98.5%.

Commenting on the handling of the elections, Mr. Boadu hailed “the maturity with which members of our great party and all stakeholders approached the conduct of these annual delegates’ conferences which started from the polling station level to electoral areas to constituency and now, regional level.”

“The party also commends the efforts of the four-man committee comprising Sammy Awuku (chairman of the committee), Evans Nimako (secretary of the committee) Bob Agbontor (member) and Gary Nimako, which was constituted by the national steering committee to help in the resolution of the issues in all outstanding constituencies,” he added.
