NPP united to help Akufo-Addo secure victory in 2016 - Afoko
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said it is united in its decision to help Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the 2016 presidential candidate of the party, to chalk up a one-touch victory in the elections.
“United in decision, the NPP stalwarts and members intend to support our presidential candidate, Nana Akufo Addo, in the campaign to achieve a one-touch victory in 2016,” the party has stated.
According to a signed statement issued by the party’s National Chairman, Mr Paul Awentami Afoko, “The public will see an active participation by party stalwarts such as our presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, former President Kufuor, myself the National Chairman, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, Alan Kyerematen, Asamoah Boateng, Dr Konadu Apraku, Francis Addai Nimoh, Joe Ghartey, amongst others, in the campaign,” the chairman said.
Mr Afoko stated this in a rejoinder to a Joy News publication that suggested that Nana Akufo-Addo’s three-time running mate, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, will lead the 2016 campaign.
“The said publication is a complete misrepresentation of my very comment in the interview,” Mr Afoko stated.
In that interview, Mr Afoko is reported to have revealed some party strategies, detailing an account to make Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to play lead role of the party's 2016 campaign.
