Sunyani, May 28, GNA – The Great Consolidated People’s Party (GCPP) has elected new executives in Brong-Ahafo to steer the affairs of the party in the region for the next four years.
The nine-member regional executives were elected by a popular acclamation, because according to Mr. Samuel Boadu, the Deputy Brong-Ahafo Regional Director of the Electoral Commission (EC), only those candidates filed nominations for the various positions.
They are Messrs Christian Kyere, Chairman, Godson Apraku, Vice Chairman, Roosevelt Ania, Secretary, Oscar Amponsah, Organiser, Barnabas Abaane, Education Secretary, Paul Tawiah, Treasurer, Victoria Dufie, Women’s Organiser and Felicia Adu, Youth Organiser.
Dr Hebert Henry Lartey, the leader and 2012 Presidential candidate of the GCPP, who swore the executives into office, asked them to work hard to revive the party, especially at the grassroots.
He said the party still considered ‘domestication’ as the best tool to transform the dwindling economy, alleviate poverty, and enhance job creation.
Dr Lartey explained that a GCPP government would promote local industrialization, promote eco-tourism, cut down on imports, and export charcoal, coffee and vegetables in large quantities to boost foreign exchange earnings.
He stressed the need for government to provide a sound financial support base for farmers to encourage them to shift attention from small-scale to commercial farming, to create both international and local markets for their produce.
This, according to Dr Lartey, would motivate most of the unemployed teeming youth to venture into farming as a profession.
He stated that the above vision would be a mirage if the new executives and party supporters failed to intensify their campaign for the Party to win the 2016 general election.
Dr Lartey promised that the GCPP held the key to Ghana’s economic success and therefore entreated Ghanaians to give the Party a chance by voting massively for it come 2016.
Mr. Kyere, the newly-elected Regional Chairman, thanked the delegates for the confidence reposed in the executives, and gave the assurance that the executives would ensure a united front and work hard to bring the Party to power.
