Politics of Thursday, 12 April 2018
The Acting General Secretary of the governing NPP, John Boadu has, on Tuesday, April 10, officially begun his campaign to be elected as the party’s substantive General Secretary at the impending 2018 National Annual Delegates Conference to be held in the month of June.
He is currently touring the various constituencies in the three regions of the north, beginning with the Upper West Region, where he is meeting all constituency executives of the party and selling his message of hope and prosperity for the party’s grassroot.
In view of the indispensable contribution of the grassroots to the NPP’s historic 2016 electoral triumph and the need to constantly satisfy them, the #JohnBoadu4GS campaign revolves around the theme, STRENGTHENING AND EMPOWERING THE PARTY’S GRASSROOT FOR VICTORY 2020 AND BEYOND.
Of particular significance is the fact that, John Boadu comes into this race with arguably, an unrivaled track-record and stupendous political experience from the grassroot to the high echelon of the party, making him the best candidate to address the concerns of the party’s grassroot and others along the chain.
John Boadu’s campaign also largely focuses on resourcing party structures and executives at all levels including the construction of permanent party offices and furnishing same with computers, provision of job opportunities for party members, making resources available and on monthly basis to the constituencies for the running of constituency offices, establishing a party ideological school or training institute, setting up a functional situation room at the party headquarters for the purpose of receiving and addressing complaints of party grassroot through the relevant individuals and institutions.
It is also very instructive to note that the general secretary and his campaign team SHALL BE VISITING EACH OF THE 275 CONSTITUENCIES IN THE COUNTRY to, among other things, apprise themselves with the current state of the party at each constituency and also address the concerns of the constituency executives and grassroot members for that matter.
