Accra Based NPP Members From Adansi Asokwa Constituency Commend National Executives For Opening Parliamentary Primaries Nominations For The First Time In 20 Years.
2RD FEBRUARY, 2020
THANK YOU NPP FOR RECOGNISING ADANSI ASOKWA NPP DELEGATES FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2020 PARLIAMENTARY PRIMARIES TO ELECT A PARLIAMENTARY CANDIDATE (PC) FOR THE CONSTITUENCY SINCE 1992.
The concern citizens of New Patriotic Party (NPP) from Adansi Asokwa Constituency based in Greater Accra region, want to use this opportunity to commend the national executives of our great party led by the National Chairman-Freddy Blay, General Secretary; John Boadu, Ashanti regional Chairman; Bernard Antwi Boasiako A.K.A Chairman Wontumi, and our democratic constituency Chairman Mr. Kwame Owusu for opening nomination for the first time in the Adansi Asokwa Constituency for the party hardworking delegates to have a say in the election of a Parliamentary candidate for the constituency going into election 2020 general elections.
The Adansi Asokwa Constituency for the past 20 years has never held parliamentary primaries since 1992, due to the autocratic leadership style of the former constituency persons, including one term Chair Persons Asou Gyebi, one term chairman Dark Yeaboah and Mr. Kwabene Ameyaw who ended his three terms in the last constituency executive’s primaries.
Under the tenure of former chairpersons, the party in the constituency never opened nominations for any member of the party in good standing to challenge the party’s incumbent Member of Parliament (MP), Hon. Kwabene Tahiru Hammond in primaries.
Few other party members who managed to pick forms either at the regional or national levels were eliminated through rough tactics engineered by the party’s constituency executives for the incumbent MP to contest unopposed for 5 terms affront to the party’s internal elections constitution.
This demonstration of bad faith by the party’s constituency executives created divisions in the party among the constituency executives, delegates and true patriots of our great party in the constituency. This gave other disgruntled applicants zeal to contest as independent candidates which nearly cause the party in 2016 general election.
Those of us in Accra also didn’t return home to vote in the last elections because of lack of open fairness and relegation of the party’s constitution in the constitution which results undoubtedly demonstrated serious apathy in the constituency at the detriment of the party.
This time, we will like to assure President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, National, regional and constituency executives of the party that, we have restored all reveals services and other commitments.
Currently, we are already prepared to return home to campaign vigorously for the party after the parliamentary primaries. We will also fully mobilise all our members in Accra among non-members to fully participate in the upcoming voters’ registration exercise.
We also want to assure the Regional Chairman, Wontumi and the National Executives of our great party that, we the Adansi Asokwa Concern NPP members based in Accra are ready to sponsor printing of billboards, posters of both the Presidential candidate of the Party Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo and whoever the party’s constituency delegates elect as Parliamentary candidate for the constituency.
However, for now, we know of only Sammy Binfo Dakwa as only person who has picked a nomination forms to contest incumbent MP Kwabene Tahiru Hammond popularly known as K.T Hammond.
We the concern members of the party, will want to entreat all other aspirants to conduct clean campaign devoid of insults and character assassination which has the ability to create more division and confusion in the constituency.
Once again we thank the National, Regional and Adansi Asokwa constituency executives for ending 20years of autocratic selfish rule by some party members to the disadvantage of the entire constituency and the NPP in general.
Long live NPP
Long live Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo
Long live Adansi Asokwa NPP
