NPP flagbearer hopefuls have received a stern warning about the consequences of making reckless, self-centred, and party-damaging comments. The delegates have made it clear that any such remarks will be promptly punished. Peter Ayinbisa, the Upper East Regional Communication Director for the NPP, emphasised the importance of careful language selection for the flagbearer hopefuls as they strive to lead the NPP into the upcoming 2024 general election.
Mr. Ayinbisa further elaborated that the potential flag bearers should exercise caution in their choice of words to safeguard the party’s integrity and maximise its chances of success in the 2024 general election. He emphasised the need for responsible communication that upholds the party’s values and does not undermine its objectives.
The warning serves as a reminder to the flagbearer hopefuls that their words carry significant weight and can have far-reaching consequences. It underscores the delegates’ expectation that the candidates conduct themselves with utmost decorum and avoid any statements that could potentially harm the NPP’s reputation or jeopardise its prospects in the upcoming election.
Mr. Ayinbisa’s comments were primarily aimed at Kwabena Agyapong, the former General Secretary of the party.
“Unfortunately he [Kwabena Agyapong’s] is falling out of touch with the delegates. Some of these comments will attract concerns from the delegates and the delegates would punish some of these people for making some of these comments,” he said on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show recently.
Mr. Ayinbisa was again opposed to the comments made by Mr. Agyapong on the state of the country’s economy. He explained that Mr. Agyapong’s deliberate attempt to paint an unrealistic picture of what has happened so far is unfair to the government and the global dynamics.
Meanwhile, the NPP, pursuant to Article 10(3) of the New Patriotic Party’s Constitution, the Vetting Committee for the Party’s Presidential Primary Election submitted its report to the National Council through the General Secretary on Monday, July 10, 2023.
In the report, the Committee recommended the under-listed individuals as eligible to participate in the upcoming Presidential Primaries subject to the approval of the National Council.
