“As we are heading to the polls tomorrow 27th of May,2022, I humbly use this medium to send my message of Goodwill and best wishes to all aspirants or contestants to the Upper East Regional Executive Election of the Great NPP to manage/steer the affairs of the party for the next four years the best of luck in their/your request to serve the party in the region.
Indeed, putting yourself forward for this herculean but voluntary task is worth commendable. It is always happy having competent and quality people like these contesting to be executives of our party.
First of all, let me acknowledge and thank all aspirants for a civilised campaign so far. It is a sign of a good beginning and gives hopes to all that whatever the outcome of the election, there would be unity and togetherness for the task ahead of us in assisting the president and his team to mitigate the post-covid-19 and Russia/Ukraine war economic challenges facing the masses.
Dear aspirants or contestants, be reminded that this is a family competition. For that matter, there can’t be winners or losers. It is the elephant (NPP), that will be the alternate winner, hence the need for us all to rally behind each other after the elections and work extra hard than what we did in 2016 to break the #8 convincingly to consolidate the gains made by the President Nana Addo/Bawumia regime, especially our pro-poor policies.
Let me also advise supporters/followers of the various aspirants/candidates to be measured and cautious of their actions that may not auger well for the candidates’ and the party’s unity. We need all on board as a family to break the #8 come 2024. Be decorum, civil and minimise your hopes and emulates the maturity and good relationships being exhibited by the aspirants.
On this note I wish all of you the best of luck and may the good Lord see us through this decision-making conference. Safe journey to all delegates/members and make our great party great and strong
