The General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr John Boadu, has described the annual constituency conferences of the party as successful.

He told the Daily Graphic in an interview that “it is gratifying that our people on the ground are happy”.

“Based on the resolutions and monitoring that I have done, the NPP will break the eight-year cycle,” he said.

Context

The NPP held its constituency delegates conferences from August 21 to August 27 this year.

The constituency delegates conference was in line with Article 7(27) of the NPP’s constitution and is a prelude to the party’s national delegates conference.

It discussed welfare issues on how to transform the fortunes of the party and adopted the constituency treasurer and secretary reports.

Mr Boadu said within the next three weeks, the regional conferences would also be held to discuss issues raised at the constituency level to prepare for the national conference as well.

He said the outcome of the conferences would position the party to restructure and position it to confidently win the 2024 elections.

Party unity

In a related development, the National Youth Organiser of the NPP and member of the Governing Board of the National Youth Authority (NYA), Mr Henry Nana Boakye, has called on the rank and file of the party to channel their energies towards promoting party peace, unity, and harmony, reports the Ghana News Agency.

Speaking at the party’s delegates conference in Assin North, he also urged them to desist from actions that could ruin their electoral fortunes ahead of the 2024 polls.

He said the government was working assiduously to accelerate socio-economic development across the country, hence, it behoved party members to embrace unity and work harder to improve the lot of the people.

"As a democratic party, we must stand firm and commit ourselves to our common goal to build a new Ghana we all desire under the able leadership of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

"In every election, there will always be winners and losers and, therefore, we should be able to appreciate the fact that we are a party with a common destiny. Let's see it as such and stay united in the supreme interest of the NPP,” he stressed.

He urged party folks to bury their differences, saying the NPP had a team that was solidly knitted together with a focus on pragmatic socio-economic policies and had stayed true to the people by delivering on most of its promises.
