Ursula: We will do whatever it takes to win 2016
New Patriotic Party Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West, Ursula Owusu, has euphemistically declared war come 2016.
Analyzing the outcome of last year's elections and the NPP's petition at the Supreme Court to seek for a redress over what the party leaders termed as rigging and irregularities in the electoral results, Hon. Ursula Owusu called on her party faithfuls to stand resolute and ensure that they are not cheated during the 2016 general elections.
She bemoaned the unfortunate incidents that preceded the 2012 elections and was hopeful her party will be more vigilant next time around.
The 2016 elections, she earnestly stated, is "going to be war at the polling stations…2016 will be worse…Nobody will go to the court; we will slug it out at the polling stations. We will do whatever it takes to ensure that we get the results we want and I’m saying that in all seriousness.”
Contributing to a panel discussion programme on Oman FM, she also implored the party supporters to critically assess the candidates vying for positions in the NPP and vote for the selfless ones bent on unifying the party.
She charged them not to allow nepotism to cloud their voting pattern.
“We’re in opposition, so, we need all the help we can get. So, we need selfless committed people who are prepared to sacrifice in the greatest interest of NPP…We don’t just want anybody at all to come and join the party leadership at all levels. We need those who can sacrifice and defend the party.”
