New NPP executives must unify party to maintain power - Sefwi-Akontombra MP
The Member of Parliament for Sefwi-Akontombra Constituency in the Western Region, Alex Tetteh Djornobuah, has urged the new national executives of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) to unify the party and make it stronger to maintain power in 2020.
He said with the caliber of the new crop of executives, he has no doubt that they would work hard to maintain power.
He called on the new team to ensure the party is united at all time, saying they must work in unison to guarantee the general welfare of the party members.
Speaking in an interview, Mr. Djornobuah said he is hopeful that with the rich background of the executives, the party would be the major beneficiary at the end of the day.
He urged all those who contested in the national conference, both winners and losers, to close ranks and work for the good of the party, saying the concerns of the grassroots must be the concern of the new executives.
"You have an arduous task to ensure a strong base of the party", he added.
He also waded into the controversial 275 buses for each constituency, purchased by the new chairman Freddie Blay, dispelling accusations that an effort by the chairman to resource the various constituencies was an attempt of vote buying.
He pointed out that the generosity of people to support the party at the constituency level must be encouraged.
The MP said he is in full support of innovative ways to resource the constituencies because the challenges they face are worrying and pathetic.
Mr. Djornobuah said however that people who suspects any acts of corruption by individuals to resource the party can go to court and challenge such acts.
