Monitor campaign of NPP aspirants


The "Nana Akuffo Addo Fun Club" has appealed to the leadership of the
New Patriotic Party (NPP) to set up a campaign monitoring team to monitor the campaign activities of all those aspiring to become the presidential candidate of the party for the 2008 general elections.

This is to avoid acrimony and ensure that there was decency and respect towards one another by all those contesting for the position of the flag bearer during their campaigns to canvass for votes from the delegates.

The suggestion was contained in a statement the club issued in Tamale
and signed by its President, Akbar Yussif Rohullah Hojatullah Khomeini.

The statement suggested that the aspirants should be made to meet at
least once every month to deliberate on the way forward as a means of reducing the level of resentment among the contestants to ensure a violent free congress.

It urged the contestants to consider the victory of the NPP in next
year's elections as " Supreme and not to indulge in indecent campaign that has the tendency of splitting the party apart".

The statement said that the number of candidates vying for the flag
bearership should not be allowed to divide the party but rather be seen as "the beauty of democracy and we must allow it to strengthen its roots".

The club appealed to the delegates who would be attending the party's
congress to elect its flag bearer to endorse the candidacy of Nana Addo-Dankwa Auffo-Addo, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and NEPAD.

It appealed to the delegates to remember the sacrifices Nana
Akuffo-Addo had made for the party in the past, especially how he risked his life in leading the famous "kumi preku" matches that contributed to the party's victory in the 2000 elections.
