Aspiring General Secretary of the NPP, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, has congratulated the National Council of the Party, for its decision to “centralize” the Party’s Annual National Delegates Conference, saying “it is reflective of the concerns and aspirations of the mass membership and support base of the NPP”.
The National Council of the NPP, at a special meeting held at the Alisa Hotel in Accra on Tuesday, February 4, 2014, decided that the National Annual Delegates Conference of the Party be held at Tamale, in the Northern Region.
The Council also postponed the Conference from the proposed March 1st, 2014 to April 12, 2014.
It will be recalled that the National Executive Committee of the NPP,
led by the current Chairman, Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey proposed to “decentralize” the up-coming delegates’ conference by holding it simultaneously in the 10 regions of the country.
Speaking on the matter, Lawyer Yaw Buaben Asamoa expressed his gratitude to the Party’s National Council for preventing what he termed “the desecration of the Party’s constitution through decentralization” by responding timeously to genuine concerns of the masses.
According to YB, the decision by the National Council to address the issue of funding a centralized National Annual Delegates Conference and other related issues, is indicative of how close they are in sync with the Party’s mass base and how determined they are to guide the Party through a successful congress.
