Upper East Regional Chairman hopeful of the governing New Patriotic Party, Ing. Filson Apambila Awankua has called on delegates not to fail the party conviction of ‘breaking the 8’ at the 2024 general election.
According to Ing. Apanbila Awankua, it will be a blow in the face of everyone if the NPP fails to break the long-held eight-year tradition of governance.
“An opportunity is dawning on us yet again, and we, as delegates, cannot afford to disappoint the rank and file of the NPP tradition. Opposition is a very painful experience, and thus breaking the eight is a national responsibility”, he said.
To him, the best way for the party to achieve its vision of breaking the eight is when delegates elect someone of good standing who understands the grassroots’ struggles.
“It is in this quest above that the next Regional Chairmen of the New Patriotic Party across all regions and, in particular, the Upper East Region must be someone tried and tested in skills and knowledge of the party’s organizations,” he added.
Ing Awankua explained that internal party activism remains an integral factor of the party for an effective party organization and restructuring for a continued victory.
“The New Patriotic Party in the last few months has been moderating such activities from the polling stations to the constituencies across the country. It is worthy of recognition how peaceful the elections have gone despite the few instances of misunderstanding among delegates. The next task ahead is the execution of a regional congress to elect the next crop of regional leaders. The ultimate goal in all of this is to enable effective machinery for the next general election. It is for this reason that delegates are required to take do a retrospective review of past engagements of the present crop of party leaders whose management of party activism has created a situation of a diminished influence and popularity of the New Patriotic Party in the current dispensations,” he explained.
