As the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) begins its annual Constituency Delegates Conference to elect constituency executives, today, April 28, 2022, the Upper East Regional Communications Director of the party, Johnson Ayine has admonished delegates and aspirants to ensure unity during and after the election.
According to Mr Ayine, all the candidates deserve to be party executives, but whoever emerges winner should be supported by all other aspirants to help the party achieve its purpose. He spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show.
“This is an internal exercise that we are going to do. There cannot be a winner or loser. At the end of the day, it is the NPP; the elephant family, that wins. Whether you are able to go through or not, you should come and rally behind those that would emerge as winners and support the government of the day to work hard for us to break the 8. That is our ultimate aim.”
“It is not about the position you occupied. It is not about who you are. It is about the interest of the party and the country. We cannot afford to lose the next elections. We have suffered a lot in making sure that we fix the problems. Had it not been for COVID1-9, the country would have been far better than we have it today,” he explained.
In a related development, as the NPP seeks to elect constituency executives across the country, a notable face that will be missing out on the ballot paper is Fatawu Sumaila.
Mr Sumaila contested as Women Organizer for the Zebilla Constituency in the Bawku West District of the Upper East Region in 2018 but lost.
The position of Women Organizer in the country has always been contested by women but Mr Sumaila changed the narrative by venturing into the area to lead the party’s women wing in the Zebilla constituency.
The governing New Patriotic Party is set to hold its annual constituency delegates conference from April 28th to May 4, 2022. A statement from the party said the congress will take place regardless of the statutory holidays; May Day and Eid-Ul-Fitr.
