A 20-member contingent of Patriotic Ambassadors for Peace (PAP) under the leadership of Katakyie Kwame Opoku Agyemang stormed Kpone-Katamanso Constituency in the Greater Accra Region on Thursday, October 6, 2016 for a 3-day outreach programme. This was a follow-up to PAP's donation of 100 posters of Nana Addo and the PC, Solomon Tetteh Appiah in July this year. The group was met on arrival by the Constituency Women's Organiser and the Assembly member of the Oyibi Electoral Area.
After a short introduction, the Women's Organiser assigned the Assembly member to lead Team PAP to the specific area where our political activities were to be concentrated. We were later joined by the PC who gave an oral briefing on the voting pattern at Oyibi in particular and the Constituency as a whole.
Team PAP divided itself two groups and developed a movement plan in the selected area in order to make the political exercise effective. With flyers and posters of Nana Addo and Paa Solo (as affectionately called), PAPers in their specially-designed T-shirts interacted with the people, involved themselves in most of their activities and preached the message of change, peace and hope to them. The whole of the Saturday was devoted mostly for the hoisting of Nana Addo and Paa Solo's banners and posters in the Oyibi township.
At the Church of Christ Temple at Oyibi, Team PAP was warmly welcomed by the Pastor and the Congregation when they realised that, our presence in the Church had nothing to do with partisan politics, but to seek for justice, peace and better leadership for this beloved country of ours. After some PAPers had joined the Church in taking communion, a special donation was made by Team PAP to the Church in aid of God's work. Although the NPP or Nana Addo's name was not mentioned when PAP's National Coordinator addressed the congregation, the Church nearly became empty when Team PAP sought permission to leave the premises for the NPP's manifesto launch. The demand for PAP's T-shirt, kalyppo, NPP panaphellinia, and the chorus of of change were enough to indicate how the people of Oyibi are poised for change.
It must be noted that, the last few months has witnessed series of outreach programmes by PAP in Ghana. These include Ahafo-Ano North Constituency in Ashanti, Ningo-Prampram in Greater Accra, Wa Central in the Upper West, Ho-West in Volta and Ingleshie-Amanfrom in Greater Accra Regions. The Team has again outlined series of outreaches till December, where items like computers, food, books and clothes would be donated to the Constituency Offices and constituents.
As usual, Team PAP would be doing a SWOT analysis on the outreach programme in Kpone-Katamanso for the PC and the Constituency Executives with the view to improving the level of campaign in the area. Admittedly, Oyibi is a stronghold of the incumbent NDC MP who doubles as the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Hon. Nii Laryea Afotey Agbo. There is a serious negative propaganda about the NPP in the area that needs to be debunked immediately, if the party is to make a meaningful impact in the December polls. Besides, over 20,000 voters have not been voting in the Kpone-Katamanso Constituency consistently since 2008, a clear evidence of a bloated register.
From the foregoing, it would be politically beneficial for the NPP leadership, especially Nana Akufo-Addo to pay a visit to Zenu or Oyibi to address the concerns raised by the potential voters in the areas of poverty, unemployment, water supply and land disputes. We are also urging the Ghanaian Youth to join PAP to canvass for votes for Nana Addo and NPP PCs to enable our beloved party dislodge the incompetent NDC from government in December.
God bless Ghana! God bless Nana Addo!! God bless PAP!!!
