Some of the committee members
Ten different sub-committees have been inaugurated in Tamale as part of preparations towards the New Patriotic Party (NPP) April 12 National Delegates’ Conference to be held in Tamale, the Northern Regional capital.
The committees include health, logistics, publicity, accommodation, transport, grounds, accreditation, security, protocol and food.
Northern Regional Chairman of the NPP, Mr. Daniel Bugri Naabu, at the inaugural ceremony, charged members of the various committees to give of their best in order to avoid flaws in the areas they have been duly assigned.
According to him, the region could not afford to fail in the organization of the historic event, and appealed to all party members who have the capacity in any of the areas outlined to lend their support to the committee members.
He appealed to chairpersons of the various committees to be mindful of their expenditure in order not to plunge the party into huge debts, bearing in mind that monies used were contributions of party members and would be accounted for at the end of the event.
The Chairman of the Council of Elders of the party and former Ghana’s Ambassador to Germany, Mr. R. I Alhassan, tasked committee members to work in harmony and achieve the set goals required by the party as explained to them in the terms of reference in their various tasks.
He reiterated the need for constituency and regional executives to ensure that the National Delegates’ Congress is successful to pave the way for future events to be staged in the region by the NPP – which traces its roots to the north.
Meanwhile, Regional Executives of the party have met with various stakeholders, including leaders of other political parties, to seek their support for the successful hosting of the Congress in the region.
At the Regional Secretariat of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), the party Chairman, Sofo Awudu Azorka, pledged his unflinching support for the forthcoming event, noting that the fact they are opposing parties does not mean they are enemies.
According to him, it was an honour for the NPP to choose Tamale as its Congress ground, explaining that it would help eradicate the erroneous impression that the north is a violent area. He assured the Congress organisers that his doors were always open for any form of support required.
Mr. Naabu thanked the NPP in its quest to have an incident-free National Delegates’ Congress and claimed that at the end of the day the region would emerge victorious.
