Madam Amma Busia
Madam Amma Bame Busia, former National 1st Vice Chairperson of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has saluted the teeming members of the party locally and across the globe, charging them to allow for a successful Congress in Tamale, the Northern Regional capital.
In a statement, she predicted an uneventful Congress in which the party, and not individuals contesting would come out the victor.
‘By the grace of God, one thing is certain about such a family gathering of the NPP. It will sail smoothly in the NPP fashion – peaceful, democratic and united,’ she prayed.
As a monumental chance for the party to promote democratic governance in the country, she said, ‘We must all think of how we can individually and collectively make the function a success such that at the end of the day we can tap our shoulders for our individual contributions’.
She enjoined party members to lift aloft the torch of democracy lit by the founding fathers and country as she recalled the late K.A. Busia’s words when he inaugurated the United Party (UP) in 1957: ‘It is our firm resolve… to unite for the achievement of sound democracy and social harmony in Ghana not only for the happiness and freedom of the citizens of Ghana, but also in order to aid the fulfillment of the aspirations of those Colonial peoples in Africa and elsewhere who look to the success of Parliamentary government in Ghana….’
Madam Amma Busia urged aspirants not to see the congress as a contest of winners and losers, adding, ‘NPP must be the eventual winner. All the gallant aspirants deserve commendation for their desire to lead the party in one way or the other towards ultimate victory in 2016 to offer pragmatic service to our nation.’
In describing the exercise in Tamale as a ‘homecoming experience,’ she said it is reminiscent of the role of the NPP of old led by some of the country’s eminent sons in the persons of Jato Kaleo, S. D. Dombo, B. K. Adama, Abayifa Karbo and C. K. Tedham, among others.’
Continuing, she said, ‘Those gallant citizens of the north joined their colleagues in the south to form the United Party, which is today the NPP. The NPP in the Northern Region is therefore at home to its roots. It is an honour also to the memory of His Excellency the late Alhaji Aliu Mahama, whose devotion and commitment to the progress of his party and country remained undiluted.’
