The flag bearer of the Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP) in the 2012 elections, Dr Henry Herbert Lartey, has asked the New Patriotic Party (NPP) not to use the vetting process in Parliament to put impediments in the county’s way.
In a press release he issued in Accra, Dr Lartey urged Ghanaians to put all hands on deck and support President John Mahama in the next four years of his administration.
“When we disagree, we should be prepared to debate. And where there is common ground, we should act -- even though those solutions may be less than perfect,” the release said.

It said the government would need all Ghanaians to build support for solutions that would help move the country forward.
“As citizens of Ghana, we should be a people who draw strength from our diversity of opinions. We should take pride in that.
“In all instances, we must never stop moving forward. That is our obligation, the responsibility for which every Ghanaian is entrusted. And a duty like that is impossible to fulfill if one acts alone, the release said.
It said every Ghanaian was needed to pledge their stand to Ghana first, pointing out that “while adding each voice to the debates of the nation, let us also begin to work together and make this country a better place for everyone.”
“Let us join President John Dramani Mahama for the next four years and help make history for our homeland Ghana,” the release added.
