PPP is party of choice — Asamoah-Siaw

The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) is determined to wrest political power from the two dominant political parties - the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) - in the 2016 elections.

Accordingly, the PPP is living the reality of that dream with pragmatic programmes and measures that seek to convince the Ghanaian electorate that the PPP is the party of choice.

The National Secretary of the PPP, Mr. Kofi Asamaoh Siaw, said this in a statement to the media.

He said the second anniversary symposium of the PPP would take place on Saturday, May 3, 2014, at Tarkwa in the Western Region. The venue is the Tarkwa Community Centre.

Party members and supporters will converge on the venue to commemorate the day.

The party will also use the occasion to brief Ghanaians on the progress so far made within the past two years of its existence; report on the current state of the party and educate members on the party’s policy positions on various sectors of the nation.

Speakers at the symposium will include Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, the PPP Presidential Candidate in the 2012 general election; his running mate, Ms. Eva Lokko, and the National Chairman, Nii Allotey Brew-Hammond.

Other speakers are Vice-Chairman Mary Ankomah Boakye Boateng, National Secretary Kofi Asamoah-Siaw, National Youth Coordinator Divine Nkrumah, National Women’s Coordinator Belinda Bulley, regional executive members, constituency executive members and a host of party stalwarts.

Representatives of other political parties have been invited.
