The New Patriotic Party (NPP) must strive to bring all stakeholders on board in the party’s quest to retain power in the December General Election, Freddie Blay, National Chairman, has advised.
“The onus lies on us, especially the leadership to open up and involve all NPP members in the electioneering campaign,” he noted, stressing that the party should shun complacency in all its forms.
Ensuring massive victory in the presidential and parliamentary elections, according to the National Chairman, required selflessness, dedication, and commitment.
Mr. Blay, who was addressing the party faithful at the Ashanti Regional Campaign Launch of the NPP in Kumasi, asked the party activists to close their ranks and work together to realize the party’s mission.
“We should work harder at all levels of the party’s hierarchy because the ruling NPP has many good things to offer Ghanaians for their prosperity,” he stated.
The programme was also used to introduce all the 44 NPP Parliamentary Candidates in the Region.
Mr. Blay entreated the Parliamentary Candidates to continuously explain the party’s manifesto to the electorate, to enable them to make informed decisions regarding the party they should vote for in the elections.
He advised party supporters at the constituency level to bury their differences and rally solidly behind the various Parliamentary Candidates as well as President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for a resounding victory.
Mr Blay, stressed the party needed to hold on to power for many years to help transform the country and work to improve the living conditions of the people.
He said the introduction and implementation of several initiatives by the NPP government in its first term of office had put the country onto the path of recovery and gradually helping to transform the lives of many people.
It was therefore important for all party members and supporters to intensify their campaigns to sell the good works of the government to enable the people to vote to retain it in power to continue with the transformation agenda.
Mr Blay pointed out that the party needed about 95 percent of votes in the Ashanti and said the national leadership was working to provide all the needed support to enable the region to obtain that objective. GNA
