Rally solidly behind NPP to ensure victory - Nii Tawiah

Accra, Sept 28, GNA - The Covenant Traders Association (CTA), a Youth Wing of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was at the weekend inaugurated in Accra with a call on members to rally solidly behind the party in its fight to retain power in the upcoming elections. Nii Adjei Tawiah, NPP parliamentary candidate for Korley Klottey Constituency, who made the call during the inauguration, reminded supporters of the party of the collective responsibility of all and sundry to work hard to ensure victory at the December polls since the NPP needed every single vote to win the elections.

The 10-member executive of the CTA has Mr Ebenezer Attah Marfo as its chairman, with Mr Emmanuel Ohene-Yeboah as the vice chairman. Other executive members include Mr Victor Ameyeyeh (Secretary); Mr Twum Barima (Organiser); Miss Berlinda Awuah (Financial Secretary); Miss Ernestina Kankam (Treasurer); and Mrs Mary Agyeiwaa (Women Organiser). While advising members to guard against negative and divisive tendencies, Nii Tawiah assured them that when elected as Member of Parliament, he would do all he could to help the Association to achieve the set goals.

Mr Alex Antwi, Constituency Chairman who inaugurated the Association, assured Ghanaians that the next NPP government under Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo would ensure that majority of the citizenry, lived in dignity, because "their standards of living would be raised to an appreciable level".

He urged the executive officers to live above reproach, and advised them not to lord it over their subordinates, but to provide selfless and dedicated leadership.

Mrs Juliana Ohemeng, Polling Station Chairperson of the Constituency lauded the NPP government for its remarkable achievements in the areas of health and education. She mentioned the National Health Insurance Scheme; the School Feeding Programme and the Capitation Grant, as some of the achievements that the NPP could be credited with. Association's Chairman and his Vice, who took turns to address the gathering, expressed the hope that come December 7, the good people of Ghana would renew the party's mandate to continue with its good works.
