The National Democratic Congress (NDC) says it will send a strong delegation to support the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) national delegates’ conference in Tamale on Saturday.
According to the NDC, it is their expectation that the NPP will conduct the contest in atmosphere devoid of hostility and violence, to ensure peace during and after the conference.
The General Secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia in an interview with Citi News said a successful congress of the NPP “is not beneficial to them alone as a party but it goes to raise our democratic as a nation.”
On the other hand however, “anything untoward that may happen there will go to end our democratic credentials so we wish them well.”
Mr. Nketia wished all the aspirants contesting for various national positions well.
Other political parties are also wishing the NPP well in their event.
The General Secretary of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Ivor Greenstreet wished all delegates travelling to Tamale a safe journey and urged them to conduct the elections in a peaceful manner adding that competency should be the basis for their voting.
The People’s National Convention’s (PNC) General Secretary, Bernard Monah and that of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Kofi Siaw Asamoah both congratulated the NPP for adhering to their party’s constitutions.
