The delegates pose with Mr. Blay at the end of the meeting.
Freddie Blay has encouraged the Northern Regional Executives of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to work towards a successful congress when the political grouping converges on the regional capital next month.
He was speaking yesterday when the executives called on him in Accra.
He asked them not to allow themselves to be provoked by the National Democratic Congress (NDC), whose agenda is to pour cold water over the congress when it is due.
‘Let it happen, don’t allow yourselves to be provoked by the NDC who would rather the congress does not take place in Tamale,’ he said.
Mr. Freddie Blay, who is vying for the position of First Vice Chairman of the party, told his guests that he is vying for the position so he can contribute his quota towards the development of the NPP.
The NPP, he said, offered many political opportunities to him.
The Northern Region could change the electoral fortunes of the party when enough energy is put in that direction, he told the executives, who relished the prediction.
‘The Northern Region could become a bastion of the party,’ he said.
The NPP, he said, would improve the fortunes of the country through fair and equitable distribution of state resources.
He saluted all those who have offered themselves for the various positions in the party.
‘I have come to the NPP to serve and to uplift the poor from their appalling state. An NPP government would not discriminate in the distribution of resources of the country,’ he said, pointing out that the fortunes of the North would be improved through good policies.
He added that he stands for collective prosperity.
He told the delegates that he seeks to be part of the change that Ghana needs to move forward from her current stagnant state.
‘I bring onboard a flavor for the party,’ he said.
The executives took turns to express their expectation and impressions.
One of the executive members called for a change in attitude in the distribution of logistics to the Northern chapter of the party.
He therefore asked Mr. Blay to consider reversing the denial of adequate resources for the Northern chapter of the NPP, which he said arrived late sometimes.
