While stating his strong connection and support for the Vice President, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia, a noted contender for the NPP in the upcoming race to lead the party into the 2024 elections, Engineer Filson Apambila Awankua has dissociated himself from the activities of supposed camps within the party.
Speaking on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show, Ing. Apambila Awankua, who is contesting the at the NPP’s Regional Elections as Chairman aspirant said it is important for the party to remain united and fight the bigger course.
“I am a known Bawumia advocate. When he was taken in 2008, we did not know much about Dr. Bawumia but his speech at the Takoradi Technical University park, I was so proud when he delivered that speech. I said, in the north, we have this calibre of men. I am someone who is excited about education, and he is someone who has this huge academic qualification,” he said.
Ing. Awankua added that he campaigned extensively for the Nana Akuffo Addo government explaining that “in a contest, if you stand in the middle, you will be crashed.” He was however quick to add “I do not believe in camps. I spoke about unity but that would not mean that I would not have a preferred person. When you are a leader, you must not be seen to be following camps.”
Meanwhile, speaking on the same platform, Ing. Awankua assured voters of his commitment to supporting party supporters at the local level to grow and excel within the spaces they find themselves in.
Ing. Awankua created the impression that the current leadership of the party has not been able to galvanise ‘party footsoldiers’ to help the party make gains in the Upper East Region.
Given the opportunity to lead the party in the upcoming regional election of the NPP, he explained that he would commit significant resources to help supporters at the grassroots level to succeed.
