Kufuor was full of praise for Mama Mary Posch-Oduro for her constant and unflinching support given to the party especially the usual platform given to Presidential Candidates and national campaign teams of our dear party NPP in Germany during electioneering campaign.

Former President Kufuor was very confident the party will grant her another term after 2022 if she would still would have the strength to serve the party.
