THE TERTIARY Students Confederacy (TESCON) of NPP, Cape Coast Polytechnic branch, has condemned factionalism in the Cape Coast Constituency of the party, which has led to legal battles among members.
According to the group, the Cape Coast Constituency has a strategic influence on the party so if divisive issues are allowed to take root, the situation could jeopardize the party's chances of retaining power.
President of the Cape Coast Polytechnic TESCON, Mr Stephen Luke Dapaah condemned the act at a press conference on Wednesday in Cape Coast.
He therefore appealed to the national and regional executive members of the party to intervene as early as possible to prevent a situation where TESCON would waste resources and energies to campaign for the party towards the crucial 2008 general elections, only for it not to win.
He disclosed that whoever emerged winner after the party's delegates' congress had the onerous responsibility of building a strong and formidable party.
In view of this, Mr Dapaah called on delegates to consider the interest of the party first by electing a marketable flagbearer.
He went on to say that the NPP government had done a lot for the country in terms of development, as compared to the achievements of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), and therefore urged government to continue with its good works.
The TESCON President revealed that the people of the country would never forgive NPP if it allowed NDC to capture power in 2008, and appealed to all NPP members to ensure that the party retained power in next year's polls.
The association later donated assorted drugs worth ¢60 million to the Cape Coast District Hospital as part of their social responsibility to the health sector.
A Pharmacist Technologist at the hospital, Nana Gabriel Odoom Yamoah, who received the drugs on behalf of the hospital, commended TESCON for the kind gesture, and appealed for more assistance from other benevolent organizations and individuals.
