NPP group urges delegates to vote for Akasi Miezah as Western Regional treasurer
The Concerned Communicators of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Western Region have urged the delegates to vote massively for Miss Anne Akasi Homa Miezah as the next party's Treasurer to manage the finances of the party till 2022.
The party has started vetting of aspirants and working on balloting for positions pending the main elections slated for 21-24 of April 2018.
Miss Akasi Miezah is contesting for the treasurer position with three others.
She has been vetted successfully by the election committee over the weekend and placed on the fourth position on the ballot paper.
A statement signed by the group's Public Relations Officer, Ishmael Avo Miezah and copied to GhanaWeb's Western Regional Correspondent indicated that the position of Western Regional treasurer goes beyond just occupying office but would be able to serve as the financial engine and catalyst to winning more votes for the NPP in 2020 general elections.
He described Miss Akasi as a financial driver and as someone who has the ability to manage and maintain financial resources to develop any institution hence deserved to be voted for as the party's treasurer.
He also appealed to the delegates to vote for someone who can carefully and judiciously manage funds in the party and will be accountable to all which are the hallmarks of Msis Akasi.
"Notwithstanding we should not forget that such enviable vision and mission comes at a cost as well exposing us to a serious financial crisis, which ought to be carefully and judiciously managed by a person with a strong financial background, Good lobbying skills, with great connection to make things happen rather than voting base on whom we know, whom we eat with among others", he explained.
He therefore used the opportunity to congratulate the newly elected Constituency Executives for their overwhelming victory during their elections.
He also urged them to be united as one family and work hard for the party to win both parliamentary and presidential seats in 2020.
