Elvis Figo Awonekai, the Upper East Regional Secretary for the NPP has admitted that the party made a lot of mistakes before and after the 2020 elections both at the regional and national levels.

Mr. Awonekai added that the party should consider itself lucky to have still maintained its majority position in Parliament.

He made these comments when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show today, Monday 30, 2022. With a lot of the incumbent chairpersons retained at the national level across the country, Mr Awonekai believes it presents a fine opportunity for the wrong to be righted, the party made whole and the battle to break the 8 won.

“In 2020, we committed a lot of errors. Errors that we should not [have committed]. We were lucky to have gone through and have a majority in Parliament. Having gone through and committed those errors, I believe that it was important, and I believe that is the thinking of the delegates, to still have these people so that the mistakes they committed would not be repeated,” he said.

Mr. Awonekai also said the addition of new executives is also a breath of fresh air as new ideas would be brought on board.

“I was also happy when they voted for new people; especially in the Upper East Region. Only 3 of us survived; the Regional Chairman, the Women Organiser and myself,” he added.

The Regional Secretary running through the 7 addition touted their competencies and explained that the expertise and experience they bring to bear is priceless and invaluable.

Earlier, Mr. Awonekai described the party’s Regional Chairman, Anthony Namoo as a very selfless man who doesn’t think only about himself.

Speaking on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show on Monday, May 30, 2022, Mr. Awonekai said he enjoyed working with the regional chairman who was re-elected in the just ended NPP regional election.

 “For the Regional Chairman, over the past four years, I was very close to him. In fact, we didn’t have any personal relationship, but when it comes to work, we were the best of friends. I supported him very well, knowing how our region is; our regional chairmen mostly do not end their term. I did everything possible to support him so that he would be able to finish his term and possibly contest. This is a chairman who [with] logistics, everything will go to the constituencies. I have worked with him. He is very selfless. He is a selfless man who doesn’t think of himself. I enjoyed working with him.”
