Breaking 8-year cycle requires hard work — Dr Adutwum
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Bosomtwe, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, has indicated that the NPP’s agenda of breaking the eight-year election cycle is attainable but requires hard work by all members and supporters of the party.
He, therefore, charged all supporters and the leadership of the party to unite, put behind their differences and strategise well to come out with the best policies and innovative initiatives that could improve the lives of all Ghanaians.
Dr Adutwum stated this when he addressed his constituents at Kuntanase and Feyiase in the Bosomtwe Constituency last Saturday during the constituency’s annual delegates conference.
In attendance were about 800 delegates of the party from the constituency. Also present at the conference were the District Chief Executive for Bosomtwe, Mr Joseph K. Assumin; the Constituency Chairman, Mr Aikens Addai-Poku, and a representative from the regional secretariat of the party, Mr I K. Acheampong, who is also the Regional Director of the party in charge of research, among others.
Dr Adutwum, who is also the Minister of Education, said there was the need for all members to put their differences behind them and adopt prudent measures that would improve upon the standard of living of the people as well as attract massive votes that would help the party to win the 2024 election.
"Yes the party has delivered its campaign promises to show but that does not mean that we should go to sleep but we should redouble our effort to sustain the gains made so far and beyond," he stated.
The minister indicated that, "If we are to succeed in the next election, then we should avoid complacency since it could affect our performance for the upcoming election which is very crucial for the sustainability of the gains made despite the COVID-19 pandemic".
The MP lauded members of the party for their hard work which led to the feat chalked up during the 2020 election.
In a statement, Mr Assumin was full of praise for the members of the party in the constituency for their dedication leading to the party's massive victory during the 2020 general election .
He assured the delegates that the assembly would continue to provide the critical infrastructural needs to improve the lives of the people, irrespective of location, religion or political affiliation.
For his part, Mr Addai-Poku said the party recorded an increase in votes from 82 per cent in 2016 to 85 per cent, describing it as an amazing performance and also lauded the supporters of the party in the constituency for their hard work.
He stated that everything possible would be done by the leadership of the party to ensure that it would continue to maintain the parliamentary seat as well as increase its presidential votes in the 2024 election.
